Phone words

Postby Whatsahoe » Sat Aug 23, 2014 9:09 am

What's the longest word that can be made by using the letters of just one number's keypad on a phone?

I got the word "high" by using just the 4 key alone and "moon" by just the number 6.

I'm guessing the lack of vowels in some keys will result in lower word totals

Will you transfer me ownership of your property for coming up with 'defeeded' - opposite of undefeeded?

If so, then Crash Test Dummies has a suggestion.

If not, is non-moon a word?

I haven't had time to play with this yet, but I found it interesting to realize that the last four digits of my phone # spell the first four letters of my first name. (5287)

I can think of a prominent film that could have plausibly worked it into the dialogue...
