Mutatis is a word-chain exercise game. Given the first and last word in the chain, you are challenged to fill in "mutant" words according to the following rules:
From the second word, each word comprises the letters of the word that
precedes it except for one letter that is changed. The order of the letters
may also be changed.
You may fill in only standard English words and loanwords (words "borrowed"
from other languages that have become standard usage). Slang or colloquial
words as well as proper nouns (that require capitalization, such as names of people,
places, nations, languages etc.) are not allowed.
Given the words start and begin, the following chain demonstrates a possible solution to the exercise:
