# What is a Scanning Word™?

Based on the What is a Word/Phrase™,

If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Scanning Word™.

Use the following examples below to find the rule.

$$% set Title text. (spaces around the text ARE important; do not remove.) % increase Pad value only if your entries are longer than the title bar. % \def\Pad{\P{0.0}} \def\Title{\textbf{ Scanning }} % \def\S#1#2{\Space{#1}{20px}{#2px}}\def\P#1{\V{#1em}}\ \def\V#1{\S{#1}{9}} \def\T{\Title\textbf{Words}^{\;\!™}\Pad}\def\NT{\Pad\textbf{Not}\T\ }\displaystyle \smash{\lower{29px}\bbox[yellow]{\phantom{\rlap{rubio.2018.03.05}\S{6px}{0} \begin{array}{cc}\Pad\T&\NT\\\end{array}}}}\atop\def\V#1{\S{#1}{5}} \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline\Pad\T&\NT\\\hline % \text{ SECT }&\text{ BLANK }\\ \hline \text{ QUIP }&\text{ SWEAT }\\ \hline \text{ WET }&\text{ SEEN }\\ \hline \text{ DRIP }&\text{ LUMP }\\ \hline \text{ SCRUM }&\text{ RAM }\\ \hline \text{ DRY }&\text{ BEER }\\ \hline \text{ AIL }&\text{ PINES }\\ \hline \text{ THUMP }&\text{ STINK }\\ \hline \text{ DRUM }&\text{ FAIL }\\ \hline \text{ BUMP }&\text{ HEAL }\\ \hline \end{array}$$ (image archive)
