    Hi all



    Lets see who can get this completed, just for fun and see how smart you are :)





    What common English word is 9 letters long, and each time

    you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word?



    From 9 letters all the way down to a single remaining letter.

    I don't know but the last word will either be an "a" or "I". With the letter "I" you could make alot of 2 letter words. Other than that, I am clueless on this!

    remove the l, and the word becomes: starting
    remove one t, and the word becomes: staring
    remove the a, and the word becomes: string
    remove the r, and the word becomes: sting
    remove the other t, and the word becomes: sing
    remove the g, and the word becomes: sin
    remove the s, and the word becomes: in
    remove the n, and the word becomes: I

    Oh, I was trying to remove the letters in order. In that case, there's probably tons of words like that.
