Mala is a short version of the word malar which is the arch of bone beneath the eye that forms the prominence of the cheek. Therefore, we can consider the word legit.


code:
game  gams  gums  guns  nuns  suns  suds  sods  pods  pops  pope
pole role roll roil boil soil sail bail jail nail tail
tall call fall fill file fine mine tine tint hint hind
bind bond bone bong long gong tong tone tote note nose
pose rose hose tose lose lost post cost cast case base
bass pass paws pawn dawn fawn lawn lain main fain pain
gain gait bait baht balt bolt dolt molt most mast mist
fist fish disc disk dusk duck muck luck puck tuck tack
task cask cark nark bark park lark lard bard bars mars
mark park part wart waft daft raft rift rife life line
pine sine mine sing king kind rind find fins pins puns
punt bunt runt rust rush tush bush lush push puss pubs
pups pops pots pats vats rats cats cots dots dote rote
rite ripe rope tope cope cops [caps] cups cuss suss sass
mass maps [caps] cams rams dams jams jamb lamb lama mama
mala

Unfortunately, caps was used twice. However, cops --> cups would not be in violation of the rules, so I am going to eliminate the first caps from the list to keep from backing up.

quote:
The rules
Start with a 4 letter word.
Change any ONE letter each time to make a new word, e.g. team changes to seam.
You can't mix the letters up, e.g. team changed to meal is not allowed.

1. Post no more than once a page or 24 hours per member, whichever comes first.
2. No repeated words.
3. No curse words.
4. Must be a legitimate English word.
5. No words unfit for Scrabble (i.e. proper names etc.)
6. The person that comes up with a word that no one can change into another word is the winner.

mala --> male

I found a couple of interesting words, but not being sure if they would be allowed, I went for the easy one.

Sorry, NWNF. "Nill" is not a word. "Nihl" is a word, but that would be changing two letters. You were probably thinking of the word that means "no value," but it's spelled "nil."

Word is still "sill."

EDIT: Google's "Define: Nill" turned up no results, but OneLook.com brought up a list of online dictionaries that showed nill to be an obsolete English word meaning "not to will/wish." Game moderator, will "nill" be allowed?

Guess I should look at the previous posts huh Rhonwyyn...

Serves me right....

Sorry guys, YaYa did silk --> sill, but I beat her with silk --> milk. Therefore the last word is still milk.
