I didn't think about your first answer, but your second one is the one i was looking for

Yet another answer:

Read. Removing the last letter of the other words gives a word in English - sin, win, lea, tea.

Another?

Tear.

Uniquely, removing the initial letter gives a word in English.

Lead...because it hadn't yet been posted as an answer and was feeling left out.

Some other reasons... most aren't that great:

Only one with an L.

Least value if you swap letters for their alphabetical position and add them up.

Only one whose first letter isn't in the last half of the alphabet.

Only one whose position in the list is ironic as it follows the rest.

So lead can be ironic ... :huh: Hmmm, let's keep on and go for gold?
