4 letters => 6 words

Question

Take four letters and arrange them into six differently spelled words.

No proper names, abbreviations, etc ... you know the drill.

Just ordinary words you'd find in any dictionary.

Use each letter exactly once in each word.

Enjoy!

by four letters do you mean actually arranging the term "four letters" into 6 words or just pick any random word and find 6 alterations to it?

I think that by saying

Take four letters and arrange them into six differently spelled words
(emphasis added) the OP is pretty clearly talking about a word of four letters and not the term "four letters." If talking about the term, the subject would be singular not plural and the "them" would be "it."

by four letters do you mean

[1] actually arranging the term "four letters" into 6 words or

[2] just pick any random word and find 6 alterations to it?

[2], actually - so long as it has four letters.

But [1] is intriguing, also.

How about four letters becoming

soul fretter / tours refelt / ferret louts or fur or let set

since there are only four vowels, it's tough to make six words ...

I also found this list:

[*]NOES[/*:m:3728f]

[*]NOSE[/*:m:3728f]

[*]EONS[/*:m:3728f]

[*]ENOS[/*:m:3728f]

[*]SONE[/*:m:3728f]

[*]SENO[/*:m:3728f]

but it is only valid if you allow either names [ENOS] or foreign words [sENO]. If this were "Scrabble" rules it would be work (ENOS would not work, but SENO would).

Again, all checked at dictionary.com

tars - What guys in Texas put on their trucks.

tsar - Russian star.
