There are words from which you can remove a "chunk", leaving a new word. Like this:

    WISHBONE

WI SHBO NE

WI   SHBO   NE

WI   <poof!>  NE

WI            NE

WI     NE

WINE


There are also words that work the other way, for which inserting a "chunk" produces a new word. For example, you can insert the chunk AUTIFI into the word BEER to make BEAUTIFIER.

A "chunk" is a string of consecutive letters. It must consist of at least two letters (no single-letter chunks). It does not need to be a valid English word.

Now, what if I told you there are words into which you can insert a chunk, then remove the same consecutive string of letters, and get a different word from the original word?

What the heck am I talking about?!

I have come up with about 11 examples of this strange phenomenon.

Afterword:

Here are my 11 examples:

Start with BEECHES --> insert ES --> obtain BESEECHES --> remove ES --> obtain BESEECH

Start with BEING --> insert ING --> obtain BINGEING --> remove ING --> obtain BINGE

Start with CODER --> insert DE --> obtain DECODER --> remove DE --> obtain DECOR

Start with CODERS --> insert DE --> obtain DECODERS --> remove DE --> obtain DECORS

Start with DEDUCT --> insert ED --> obtain DEDUCTED --> remove ED --> obtain DUCTED

Start with DEFEND --> insert DE --> obtain DEFENDED --> remove DE --> obtain FENDED

Start with PALED --> insert ED --> obtain PEDALED --> remove ED --> obtain PEDAL

Start with POSES --> insert SSES --> obtain POSSESSES --> remove SSES --> obtain POSSE

Start with REDESIGN --> insert ED --> obtain REDESIGNED --> remove ED --> obtain RESIGNED

Start with PAIRED --> insert RE --> obtain REPAIRED --> remove RE --> obtain REPAID

Start with DAUNTED --> insert UN --> obtain UNDAUNTED --> remove UN --> obtain UNDATED

Any word in a pattern so that

you can remove the same chunk from two different places

works as the intermediate word. For example:

RESIGNEDR(ED)ESIGNEDREDESIGN(-ed)
A wordfinder search through Qat is here.

• It seems like you don't even need that, since the intermediate step when the chunk is inserted doesn't seem to have to be a word. For example: rot13(ybtvfg|vp| -> ybt|vp|vfg. Nygubhtu ybtvfg vf abg n jbeq, guvf fgvyy nccrnef gb or inyvq.) – Michael Moschella Jul 17 at 18:18

If the word is [Left][Right] turned [Left][Extra chunk][Right], this chunk must be removed from somewhere else. Let's say it consists of six parts, as in [1][2][[Extra chunk 1][Extra chunk 2]][3][4] (1 or 4 can be empty):

If [[Extra chunk 1][Extra chunk 2]] = [2][Extra chunk 1], it still changes the result as long as [2] != [Extra chunk 2].

If [[Extra chunk 1][Extra chunk 2]] = [Extra chunk 2][3], it still changes the result as long as [3] != [Extra chunk 1].

Is this the type of thing you're looking for?

• The OP wants a generalized pattern. – Nautilus Jul 18 at 12:11
• Ah that's a shame. Was fun to come up with that one anyway @Nautilus – Maze90 Jul 18 at 13:11
