  • $\begingroup$ YLLY isn't a word? $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Oct 17 '19 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ @Randal'Thor I assumed only the main diagonal (\) needed to be a word? There are no English words of the form _LL_, where both blanks are the same. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Oct 17 '19 at 21:06
  • $\begingroup$ Another one (using less common words) is EACH, AXLE, CLEW, HEWS $\endgroup$ – Avi Oct 18 '19 at 5:03
