: : : : : : : : : : : : We are having a problem in class.
: : : : : : : : : : : : Can anyone help with a word that uses R, E, W, O, O, N, D ? All letters used only once! quick response if possible...

: : : : : : : : : : : I'd like to help but my mind doesn't work that way. Maybe some of the other guys will check in.

: : : : : : : : : : How about "OVERWOUND"

: : : : : : : : : : No... Use only the given letters once...

: : : : : : : :
: : : : : : : : Am I understanding the question properly?

: : : : : : : Is the answer a 7-letter word that's an anagram of the given letters, or is it a longer word that contains those letters and at least one more?

: : : : : : One anagram of the letters (see my post below) is ONE WORD. If the question arose in a context involving verbal tricks, maybe that's the answer.

: : : : : $5 says that you're right.

: : : : I'll raise your five and make it ten.

: : : So if I bet against myself and ONE WORD is the correct answer, I win $15?

: : I'd demand payment from TheFallen in pounds. I will pay in dollars, of course.

: : It was a verbal trick and I have extracted payment from the little rascal. The question should have been... Can you make one word by using the letters R,O,E,N,W,O and D? I had already left the school for the day, and while driving home with my daughter, I posed the question. She answered immediately, "It is ONE WORD, Dad!" At least we have children who are still intrigued by the language... There is hope.

Could you try her on L M C A Y S H O?
