Hi, word detective!
Our letter thief has been at it again!
The thief has stolen two letters from a word but they have left a clue behind to help us figure out what the word is.
The clue is a synonym, which is a word with a very similar meaning.
Let’s have a look at the partial word:
The word has had two of its letters removed. What could these letters be?
The stolen letters are TO and the word is STOP.
