So how many eight-letter English words can you touch-type using all eight
fingers (i.e. each finger exactly once)?
I’m getting a wide variety of answers here. Merging them all (thank you, MS
Excel), I so far have 64:
aphorise apomicts autopsic bakeshop biplanes captions captious clasping
displant dystopia earlship elapsing epistoma esophagi haplites harelips
impalers impearls jackpots lempiras meropias metopias outspeak pactions
palmiest panelist pantiles parosmic parsonic pearlish penalist perisoma
petalism pintados piroques plainest plashier plastein plaudits plausive
pleasing poniards postique pralines premisal proximad pyralids pyrexial
saponite satinpod scalping scoparin scripula septimal slipband spandril
spicular spirulae spongiae spongida sprackly stipulae toadship wainrope
Though somebody has a better dictionary than I have: “toadship” isn’t in
Merriam-Webster’s Third. I can’t help thinking it *should* be, though.
“His toadship” has an obvious meaning to fans of “The Wind in the Willows.”
