I'm going to play fast and loose with the roolz, and change

B --> L I

and make BATTLESHIP into

PHILATELIST.

Maybe we should throw in all the tiles and draw seven new ones?

On the other hand, if we permit Greek letters...

If we make φ --> E we have

PHILATELIST

PHI --> E

SATELLITE

and I think we can go on from there without having to dump the entire rack of letters.

Can't we?
