Word Game 242

Here's a list of five words:

FALL STOP HAND HOLD LIST

What do these words have in common?

If you think you may have figured it out, please submit WORDs which you think may belong to this group, to test your idea.
A maximum of 10 words per player per day, please. I'll add all correct words submitted to the list.

Please don't disclose what your idea is, as that may spoil the game for others.

This game is similar to #66, only harder I think. For the reason that there are fewer correct words.

Have fun!

Re: Word Game 242

Not sure.

One of the advantages of 'Real Member' status used to be that you could PM other Real Members, + moderators and MathsIsFun, but I'm not sure if that still applies. I don't think anyone other than these can PM.

I've just sent you 3 test PMs.

Re: Word Game 242

I don't know how quick the post is.

I was surprised the other day that a post appeared in a thread that I was subscribed to, but I didn't get the email until much later. Maybe that's an email program problem, though, which may not apply to PMs.

Phron, I only just now got the email notifying me of this post!

You are spot on: go to the top of the class! (again)
