Post subject:  Dollar words 
If a = 1¢, b = 2¢, c = 3¢, and so forth, to x = 24¢, y = 25¢ and z = 26¢, what words can you find that are worth exactly one dollar? What's the shortest 'Dollar Word'? ...the longest? Two examples: telephone: 20+5+12+5+16+8+15+14+5=100¢, or $1.00 elephants: 5+12+5+16+8+1+14+20+19=100¢
