The elimination of the initial letter of a word to create another word. An example of beheadment is ''blather'' becomes ''lather''.

Marie Antoinette probably wished the word meant only dropping the first letter of a word and forming a different word. It got a little closer to her than that. At least she went out a lady. She apologized to the executioner for stepping on his toes.

I have a question, "what hat?"

This is fun, I'll smile for a mile at this rate. Ate a lash in a flash. Well parse my ar... You could have quite a game of this in the car driving to grandma house. Over hill and dale till you got ill on ale. If you played by post with folks in Ost Deutschland you could play in multiple languages.

You could rate this a great game if some where you changes and removed the last letter, "rate the dirty rat".
Fear less, hope more;
eat less, chew more;
whine less, breathe more;
talk less, say more,
and all good things will be yours.
