8 letter words

Making words with 8 letters

Look for words that can be extended by adding common prefixes (e.g., "re-", "pre-", "un-") or suffixes (e.g., "-ing", "-tion", "-able") to create longer 8 letter words.

Combine two shorter words to form an 8 letter word. For example, "starfish" or "snowball" are valid 8 letter compound words.

Words that can be extended by adding a letter or two to the beginning or end to create an 8 letter word can provide strategic opportunities.
