Question

I've resurrected this one. Here's one of the previous ones I did. The rules are the same. I've put together a list of 26 common six letter words (except for X maybe, but I'm sure you'll get it), one for each letter of the alphabet. The letters in each word are not repeated and there are no plural words (no "banjos" for example). The list below shows you which letters every word shares with the other 25 words. The six letter word that starts with A shares 3 letters in common with the six letter word that starts with B, 1 letter with the word that starts with C, and 2 with the D word and so on. Your job is to find out what the words are.

  A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
A X 3 1 2 1 1 2 3 1 0 1 2 2 2 3 2 3 3 2 1 3 1 2 1 2 0

It looks like this group might be a bit tougher (to start, at least) than the 5 letter words appear to have been, but I'll give it a shot.

Wealth. It's got the most zeros in the code, including two vowels (i and o).

Nope. Different W word. The hard part is always the start, but they fill in easier after that.

I'm going to say that the J word is JINXED...simply because J and X have 4 letters in common...so far I have (but could definitely be wrong):

A = ARTFUL

E = EXPAND

F = FLIXED

J = JINXED

X = XENIAL

I just noticed that X has a lot in common with other words...so...decided I would try starting there

T = THRIVE (possibly THRICE...but I'm going with THRIVE)

W = WARMLY

And since I'm now heading home from work...this will probably be solved by the time I look at it agian...but this was a lot of fun! thanks!!
