In the spirit of the What is a Word™/Phrase™ series started by JLee, a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles.


If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Trimpar Word™.
Use the examples below to find the rule.

$$ % set Title text. (spaces around the text ARE important; do not remove.) % increase Pad value only if your entries are longer than the title bar. % \def\Pad{\P{0.0}} \def\Title{\textbf{ Trimpar }} % \def\S#1#2{\Space{#1}{20px}{#2px}}\def\P#1{\V{#1em}}\ \def\V#1{\S{#1}{9}} \def\T{\Title\textbf{Words }^™\Pad}\def\NT{\Pad\textbf{Not}\T\ }\displaystyle \smash{\lower{29px}\bbox[teal]{\phantom{\rlap{rubio.2017.02.04}\S{6px}{0} \begin{array}{cc}\Pad\T&\NT\\\end{array}}}}\atop\def\V#1{\S{#1}{5}} \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline\Pad\T&\NT\\\hline % \text{ PHANTOM}&\text{ ADJUSTS}\\ \hline \text{ LIKABLE}&\text{ OFFHAND}\\ \hline \text{ LEGIBLE}&\text{ AUDITOR}\\ \hline \text{ UTILIZE}&\text{ ECHELON}\\ \hline \text{ QUELLED}&\text{ ALLUDES}\\ \hline \text{ TACITLY}&\text{ UNBLIND}\\ \hline \text{ LIMITED}&\text{ TEXTUAL}\\ \hline \text{ UNWEAVE}&\text{ REVIVED}\\ \hline \text{ REQUIRE}&\text{ OUTLAYS}\\ \hline \text{ ANSWERS}&\text{ IMPOSES}\\ \hline \text{ PROVIDE}&\text{ CONVEYS}\\ \hline \text{ ELUSORY}&\text{ PARTAKE}\\ \hline \hline \end{array}$$

The CSV version:

TRIMPAR Words™,Not TRIMPAR Words™
PHANTOM,ADJUSTS
LIKABLE,OFFHAND
LEGIBLE,AUDITOR
UTILIZE,ECHELON
QUELLED,ALLUDES
TACITLY,UNBLIND
LIMITED,TEXTUAL
UNWEAVE,REVIVED
REQUIRE,OUTLAYS
ANSWERS,IMPOSES
PROVIDE,CONVEYS
ELUSORY,PARTAKE

These are not the only examples of Trimpar Words™, many more exist.

What is the special rule these words conform to?


HINT:

"Trimpar" is relevant :)

  • $\begingroup$ ahh I see you decided to take a crack at this style of question too eh? How about another hint since it's been over a month? $\endgroup$ – Sensoray Mar 19 at 13:01
  • $\begingroup$ Does the fact that they are all seven-letter words mean anything? $\endgroup$ – gnovice Apr 8 at 16:01
