Word Building with Chunks

This is getting serious now. Another language teaser.


  1. I had to write them down and play around with them.
  2. Actually cutting each piece up and moving them around works like a dream and is a great way to add to one’s vocab.

Below, 10 nine letter words have been broken into chunks of three letters.

These chunks have been mixed up, no chunk is used twice and all chunks are used.

Can you determine what the 10 words are?

cer ent ead rat uti spr
ful oun pro ann ope ockr
nce een oat est liv ionr
nou sev ion ast hou akfr
bre bea ens dim bed sebr

Pronounce, beautiful, dimension, livestock, operation, announcer, bedspread, houseboat, seventeen, breakfast.
