Witwits-Part 1

Article excerpt

A WITWIT is merely an acronym for "Where In The Word Is That?," an orthographic challenge that I introduced in May I Have A Word With You?. In the first of this seven-part series, two dozen letter sequences have been extracted, without interruption, from either the beginning, middle, or end of a word. Reinserting each into its proper position at the rate of one per hour, you'll identify the sources of all of these sequences in a single day.
