===Letter Swaps=== Some Word Compounds are achieved by swapping letters during the combination process. This can be in the form of swapping individual letters with new letters, or swapping the positions of two letters within the resulting compound. The former has a lot of free reign, functionally allowing for any words that can be ''almost'' split into two separate words if it weren't for a single letter. The latter is much more difficult to implement. Words that can have two letters swap positions to become a true compound word aren't overly common, but if a puzzle does manage to use this effectively, it can make for a unique solving experience. AAAA + BBBB = AAACBBBB --> ANT'''S''' + BODY --> ANTIBODY AAAA + BBBB = BAAABBBA --> CON'''S''' + RA'''T'''T --> CONTRAST In hunt puzzles, this element is often presented as sets of clues, allowing solvers to both solve clues to get the component words and solve clues to get the eventual results. This also has the benefit of providing a way for solvers to check and sort their results should they choose to focus entirely on the component clues.
