  2. Language Riddle #2

    There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?

    The one with the coffee was actually my logic. My teacher told us the Heartache and Headache one a few years back and i was the 2nd to get it right, so that was kinda me too. The same teacher gave us the 9 letter thingy...i didnt get it...but i just remember the answer.
