Thomas Jones · The OuLiPo Challenge
An OuLiPian(ish) challenge:
Think of a word of more than three letters* that, however many letters you remove from the end of it, is still a word (e.g. ANTICS: a, an, ant, anti, antic, antics). Then write all the words out in order and punctuate them to make a (more or less) meaningful sentence.
A: an ant, anti-antic, antics.
Are there any others? Or is this as it were a hapax legomenon?
*Three letter ones are relatively easy:
A, an 'and'.
I, in inn.
O, on one.
