Change one letter to make a new COMMON EVERYDAY ENGLISH LANGUAGE word without changing position of the letters. The next person to change a letter must select a letter in a different position from the last change. Example: If YARD were the starting word, the next could be HARD by changing the first letter. The next letter to be changed could be any position but the first one so that the following word could be HERD, HAND, or HARE but not BARD. Additionally, it was suggested that the changed letter be capitalized to make it easier for the next person to identify which letter position to avoid. Because we use only 4 letter words, the least frequently used letters of Q, Z, X, V, and J ARE NOT ALLOWED. If any person uses an obscure word or one containing the letters not allowed – the next to post may simply IGNORE that incorrect post and work from the last legitimate posted common word.I will start us off with WORD.

-----

:Addition To The Rules:

If a word is impossible to move forward, but it can move forward by changing the same letter, that exception can be made.

Words still part of the "World English Dictionary" can be used, but should only be used to get out of really tough words. An explanation why the word was chosen would be nice, but keep it friendly. Referencing a source for uncommon words would be helpful, but I don't expect it to be needed often.

Please play nice.
