Awkward Letters | Comment 2 of 10 |
Looking through Charlie's listing I am surprised not see words like JINX, QUINCE, QUICHE, PIQUE.

Using a "PnP" method (actually locking the given letters of the KS array into a spreadsheet, and cycling through the alphabet) I began to place certain letters like J, Q, X, Z, V and W.

Q would only seem to fit in the second or third word, or maybe coupled with U [QU] to be in the last word, but I can't think of any suitable word there.

I can't recall all efforts but my current "failed" list looks like:
VALERIUM
QUICHE
-I--E
FOLDER
JINX
WRAP
BRAZEN
-OL--A-

At one point I'd considered BROKEN instead of BRAZEN and MATERIAL for the first word.

I'm beginning to like PIQUE as the third word.
