#WordWednesday


Last Wednesday my post was about Lewis Carroll and his doublets. Well, I'm not quite ready to quit, so here's a step up from the basic doublet.

Lewis later modified the rules to make the puzzles more difficult. Here is the example he used to introduce a new version of the doublet: Change IRON into LEAD by introducing a new letter or by rearranging the letters of the word at any step. You may not do both in the same step.


IRON
icon (Results from changing the "r" in "iron" to "c")
coin (Results from rearranging the letters in "icon")
corn (Results from changing the "i" in "coin" to "r")
cord (Results from changing the "n" in "corn" to "d")
lord (Results from changing the "c" in "cord" to "l")
load (Results from changing the "r" in "lord" to "a")
LEAD (Results from changing the "o" in "load" to "e")

Now, try your hand at this kind of doublet.
10. Change HATE into VEIL with three links. (Answer tomorrow.)
