longest charlinkade FORESTALL: FOREST, ALL; FORE, REST, TALL (9)

notice the "link" part of charlinkade. the words listed in the two groups *link the characters of forestall. the word ore is also contained therein, but doesn't work.

there are other word games.. one that help with spelling (as your words within words does, i guess)

i learned to spell conscious.. because someone pointed out that the word had some science to it.. and after that, i never forgot the c--conscious in the middle.

Welcome aBoard, NBC. Golly, from your screen name, I thought maybe you were in charge of staff fun at NBC!
But then I saw your bio--you and Rouspeteur share a career, as do WhitmanO'Neill and Flatlander (sort of), not to mention three-used-to-be-four attorneys, three docs, and a whole bunch of folk wot work with/on/in computers.

Actually, I think most people who misspell separate have a problem with the second syllable, and they write *seperate instead. Or at least I've seen it spelled like that numbers of times. And the rat is still there!
