Twenty five of the twenty six letters of the alphabet, excepting Q, are displayed above, spiraling out from "A" located in the center position. Five-letter words are sought here, each of which has the property that no two of its letters come from the same row in the matrix. One such is REIFY. How many can you discover? A listing of 1-20 is fair, 21-40 good, 41-60 very good, and 61-80 excellent. Any list with greater than 80 entries is superb!
