    Each word must begin & end with the same letter.. starting with A – [e.g. aura] then B – then C progressing through the alphabet. 4 letters or more.
    No proper nouns. One word per person at a time.
    No set number of words for each letter – we just keep going until we dry up ..be it 10 words or 30.
    In addition to ordinary words let’s try to find as many different words as we can.
    Dictionaries can be consulted to find new & unusual words.

    How you going, Fern, I think there are a few more we could find but if you have had enough of this letter we can move on if you like?

    I think I’ve just about exhausted my supply Val. We gave these letters a good run for their money. 🙂 Been fun!

    We might have to put a limit on the number Val if the list gets so long it takes us a week to check whether the word’s already there. 🙂

    Fern, try the Ctrl + F keys which opens a search area top left of the toolbar at the top of the page. Type in your word & it will tell you if there are any matches.  I remember Tis telling us that tip!

    Thanks for that Val. I remember someone telling us how to do that awhile back but I’d forgotten. I’ll write that down somewhere before I forget again. Nice one! 🙂
