“Applause,” Friend, Jan. 1984, 44


There are more than twenty three-letter words hiding in the word applause. How many can you find by rearranging the letters? Use each letter only once in each word. If you find twelve or more words, give yourself a big round of applause!


  • ala, ale, alp, ape, asp, els, lap, lea, pal, pap, pas, pea, pep, pup, sal, sap, sea, spa, sue, sup, ups, use.
