Just my opinion, but if you remove the restriction on 4,7,8 it becomes less of a puzzle and turns it into an exercise to download a huge list of five letter words and do a brute force count.
As it is, I think with the restriction in place it works as a puzzle. Both Charlie and I found the solution "tummy," and "tells" is also a possibility.
I think you implied that you have other solutions even with the requirement that 4,7, and 8 are all included in the alphametic. Could you post one of the others so we can see if we're thinking about it in the same way? Because I don't see how any others are possible.
