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.

Accessible Words™ Not Accessible Words™
PINK MAGENTA
WATER JUICE
MILK CHEESE
FACETS NUANCE
KILL MURDER
JUMP LEAP
FEARED FRIGHTENED
DEGRADE INSULT
WARS BATTLES
HUMP CAMEL
EDWARD ALPHONSE

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?
