This is in the spirit of the What is a Word™/Phrase™ series started by JLee with a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles. I'm pretty sure this hasn't been done already.

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

$$\begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline \bbox[yellow]{\textbf{Accessible Words™}} & \bbox[yellow]{\textbf{Not Accessible Words™}}\\\hline \text{PINK} & \text{MAGENTA}\\\hline \text{WATER} & \text{JUICE}\\\hline \text{MILK} & \text{CHEESE}\\\hline \text{FACETS} & \text{NUANCE}\\\hline \text{KILL} & \text{MURDER}\\\hline \text{JUMP} & \text{LEAP}\\\hline \text{FEARED} & \text{FRIGHTENED}\\\hline \text{DEGRADE} & \text{INSULT}\\\hline \text{WARS} & \text{BATTLES}\\\hline \text{HUMP} & \text{CAMEL}\\\hline \text{EDWARD} & \text{ALPHONSE}\\\hline \end{array}$$

An Accessible Word™ is

a word which can be written with one hand on a QWERTY keyboard with standard finger placement (index fingers on F and J).

They're called "accessible" because

they can be easily accessed with one hand?

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, that was really quick! Any idea why they're called Accessible? $\endgroup$ – tryin Jul 31 '19 at 5:46
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, that's right! I'll probably wait a bit before accepting your answer but consider the green tick in the bag $\endgroup$ – tryin Jul 31 '19 at 11:53
