I thought I'd try my hand at creating one of these Word™ puzzles.

--

If words have a certain property, I call them Sending Words™.

Sending Word™    Non-Sending Word™

ACT              PORTRAY
TEA              COFFEE
CRUX             PROBLEM
KNOW             REALIZE
USED             RECYCLED
YUCCA            PERENNIAL
BEGIN            START
PLIED            WORKED
TOFFEE           CARAMEL
WRONGED          BETRAYED

I hope the above is readable enough. Here is a CSV:

Sending Word™,Non-Sending Word™
ACT,PORTRAY
TEA,COFFEE
CRUX,PROBLEM
KNOW,REALIZE
USED,RECYCLED
YUCCA,PERENNIAL
BEGIN,START
PLIED,WORKED
TOFFEE,CARAMEL
WRONGED,BETRAYED

A Sending Word™ is a word which…

The letters contained within flow either ascending or descending within the alphabet between A-Z, in other terms the word cannot use letters above or below the initial flow of the word which is set by the first two letters. A Non-Sending Word™ doesn’t conform to this rule.

  • $\begingroup$ How will TOFFEE and YUCCA fit? The series will be broken when the characters repeat. $\endgroup$ – Techidiot Oct 28 '16 at 9:41

    $\begingroup$ @Techidiot "the word cannot use letters above or below the initial flow of the word" - Repeated letters would still fall into this process. $\endgroup$ – Karm Oct 28 '16 at 9:52
