How well do you know your three letter words ?

You can only use each letter once.

 

Hint - think about which words only have one front hook, and also where some of the 'harder' consonants may go ! Answers in a few days time!

The V is one of the hardest letters to play, as it does not combine to make any two letter words.

So how many three letter words do you know that END with a V.

Also, which of them can be made into a 4 letter word with the addition of S as the final letter ?

DEV DIV

GOV GUV

LAV LEV LUV

NAV

PAV

RAV REV

SAV SEV SOV

TAV

VAV

There are 16 3 letter words ending with a V and they can ALL be pluralised with an S.

Last week the word DIFS was challenged. Is it a word ?

So the first question is ... what are the single letter front hooks of IF ? (i.e make a list  of 3 letter words, each word ending in IF)

And the second... which of those words take an 'S' (i.e a list of 4 letter words ending IFS).

The three letter words ending in IF are :

 

DIF, GIF, KIF, RIF and SIF

 

They all can be pluralised except SIF. So DIFS, GIFS, KIFS and RIFS are all valid.
