Place letters in a 3x3 grid in a way that permits spelling

the greatest number of three-letter English words.

 

The same letter can be used twice in a word.

Letters adjacent in the word must touch, in any of eight directions, on the grid

 

Example:

 

T R E

Y D Z

U N G

 

Permits [among possibly other words]

  1. ere
  2. try
  3. gnu
  4. red
  5. zed
  6. dun
  7. dry
  8. ...

Entries must contain a minimum of ten words.
