It’s startling!

I came across this earlier and immediately thought of my Far Fetched Friend who likes a word game. So. Vanessa, this is just for you.

The word ‘STARTLING’ is one of the only words in the English language where removing one letter at a time yields a new word:

Startling

Start  ing

Star  ing

St  r  ing

S t    ing

S       ing

S       in

          in

         I

Heh. Happy Sunday!
