# Letter Grid 5x5 number 1

In this grid there are five mixed-up words, shuffled only vertically. Can you find them all?

suvet
wtetl
hport
soaee
dhuse


For example, if the words were egg, sky and pie, we might see:

eke
sig
pgy


My answer is this (I found it without seeing the other answer first).

sport
state
duvet
house
wheel

It is fairly easy to match the second column letters correctly to the first column letters, as there are

only two vowels which must match with the d and h, and then the only possibility for the w is wh. So you have wh, sp, st, and either du/ho or do/hu.
The v is the only consonant in the third column, and so one of do/hu or du/ho must be followed by the v, the other by a vowel. This means you must have huv or duv, and duvet is as far as I can tell the only possibility. The rest then follows fairly easily.

I think I've found one answer

whorl
duvet
speet
state
house

Provided you accept

speet, meaning 'to stab'.

• I don't really use obsolete words, but you are close.
