    An English word in which if we take one letter off ( from anywhere ) it still remains a valid English word till the last single character.

    example : tin -- in -- i

    Note : Whoever finds the largest word would win.

    Well, it means joining by weaving. So I'm complecting a garment. I'm a complecting the sleeve onto my jacket. It's not commonly used, and it becomes completing, competing, compting which I guess is a word.

    So these are all legitimate Scrabble words, and then it goes on, compting, comping, coping, oping, which I did hear of before, ping, pig, pi, and I.

    Well, naimish has given the largest possible word.

    Simply googling the question takes us to a blog-page which has a bruter for this question. And as the buter finds out, the largest word is complecting.

    But, I think this thread should stay open for 24hours (as per the rules) -- May be someone will find a 12-letter one.
