    $\begingroup$ This is a very famous question, but usually written the other way round. It's usually phrased as 'I'm a 5 letter word, add 2 letters and I become shorter'. $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Feb 9 at 18:03

    $\begingroup$ Yeah Beastly Gerbil is right. It's not particularly interesting that a word would become short when you take letters away from it. $\endgroup$ – hexomino Feb 9 at 18:06
