  1. fils, fist, flit, flutist, fusil, lift, list, lutist, sift, silt, silty, slit, slitty, sluit, stilt, suit, tilt, tulsi
    stultify is the word using all the letters (Susan, if you didn’t get this, I don’t think I did either. I certainly did not get tulsi or sluit, what on earth do they mean?)

  2. So-so today, Maxine. I got 12 and I did get stultify. However, I missed fils, flutist, fusil, tulsi, lutist, slitty and sluit.
    I couldn’t find ‘tulsi’ in my dictionary (a large, very reliable volume). Sluit has a South African Dutch origin (sloot – meaning, ditch) and means a deep dry gulch or channel formed by erosion due to heavy rains. I think it’s fairly certain that our ‘sluice’ comes from the same root.
    I was ready to cry foul on ‘fils’ as a foreign word but it squeaked through because it is also a type of coin.
