One To Work On...

A bookkeeper friend of mine was into not only numbers but kinds of words and word formations as a hobby. He enjoyed tinkering and investigating everything about words.

One of his projects was to find words with unusual makeup.

For instance; How many words can you find with double letters such as school,- sch-OO-l? Charlie found 126.

How many words can you find that have double double letters, such as balloon,- 'Ba-LLOO-n'?

Charlie found this a bit harder. He found 61.

Now for the biggee! How many words can you find with triple-double letters? Charlie could find only one. How about it?

Give it a go!

The letters have to be together. Example:Soorree. Mississippi-the dioubles are separated by the other letter, "i".

There is a hint in the post. Read it carefully.

Am I the only one who thinks that double should really be spelled dubble?
