Twisting our Words

I have a stepladder. It’s a very nice stepladder, but I wish I’d known my real ladder

Today’s instalment of Puzzle Week gives us a weak excuse to shoehorn in that joke. We thought we’d [bowl you a googly | pitch you a curveball] (delete as appropriate) in the form of a few Word Ladders. If you aren’t familiar with Word Ladders, why not read up about them here?

Now, because you’re all brainy wordnerd types we’ve made things a little bit trickier. So the start and end words are the reverse of each other, and every letter must be changed at some point to reach the solution (e.g. as with WOLF being changed to FLOW). Our solutions (which may, of course, not be the same as yours) are here.

1. BONK to KNOB

2. DIAL to LAID

3. SMUT to TUMS

4. NUTS to STUN

5. PAWS to SWAP caution ladder
