This is in the spirit of the What is a Word/Phrase™ series started by JLee, etc. You know the drill by now.
If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Cuddly Word™.
Use the following examples to find the rule. The alphabetical ordering of the Cuddly Words™ is not relevant.
And, if you want to analyze, here is a CSV version:
Cuddly Words™,Non-Cuddly Words™ AMBLE,STROLL ANNA,JANE APPLE,ORANGE BUNT,WHACK EAST,WEST EGO,PSYCHE IDO,ESPERANTO LASSI,DOOGH REGAN,GONERIL RIM,BRINK RUES,REGRETS STAT,IMMEDIATELY TAGINES,NAVARINS TAXI,HANSOM
