A word where if you take away one letter away at a time you end up with a two letter word.

What is it?

Hint 1:

It is an 8 letter word

Hint 2:

The final word left is in

The word is not mentioned in The most words that can be made by successively adding one letter to the original word?.

  • $\begingroup$ Welcome! Do you mean to say that you get a new word each time you remove a letter? Otherwise many words would qualify as long as they have a two letter word inside them! $\endgroup$ – SteveV Dec 23 '18 at 10:08
