Chimera words addendum

Even longer ones!

A faithful reader (PW) wonders what the longest English chimera word is. He came up with acUTE:

Chimera word: acUTE

Thanks, PW!

And because upper and lower case letters are different shapes, it turns out that acUtE also works:

Chimera word: acUtE

While I haven’t done an exhaustive search, I did come up with another 5 letter one: mUngE, and one 6 letter one: stUcco. You can see what they look like on the Chimera words web page I made.

I’ll leave you with one more possibility. It’s a single English word, but borrowed from French, and it makes two full chimeras, not one. You be judge whether it should count.


Chimera word: entr'actE
