    lookalike is the word made using all the letters.
    Some room for discussion in the above list, methinks!
    Susan: I use the “concise oxford dictionary” 10th edition if that is any help to you. The OED online is said to be very good though I prefer the book version. I suspect that the legendary “mystery man of the blogs” Dave Lull would have some good opinions about relative worth and usefulness of dictionaries.

  2. I only got ten this time, Maxine. I was utterly bewildered by those ‘k’s! After the fact, of course, I realize how many I should have found. I did get ‘lookalike’ at least.
    I have an older Oxford dictionary in my collection – I suppose I need to update.
