Word Ways, Colloquy and Kickshaws.

COLLOQUY and KICKSHAWS each have two repeated letters. Even WORD WAYS has one repeated letter. This makes them ideal candidates for which to find isomorphs, words with the same letter pattern and no crashing letters. Here, I attempt to find an A-Z of isomorphs for each of them.

Words can be found in the Oxford English Dictionary, 2nd Edition, unless stated otherwise. hod. = Hodge's Handbook of American Indians, long = Longman's Dictionary, w2 = Webster's Second Edition.

Locations, by country, are taken from The United States Board on Geographic Names: (1) Austria (2) China (3) Poland (4) Egypt (5) Russia (6) Indonesia (7) Maldives (8) Latvia (9) Russia (10) China (11) Belarus
