Playing with words

I watched Dean Poole at the Design Indaba conference playing with the word Art and it inspired me to give word play a try.
As testers its important to be able to talk to people, and to know how to ask good questions, which means I really like words!
I have taken the word TEST to work on for the morning of our Friday projects day and see what I come up with.
I have chosen a number of techniques to have a play with, but there are many more out there!
It has been trickier that I thought and in hindsite using a word with the same letter in it twice has proved challenging but here are my results!

T  E  S  T
E  H  C  O
S  H  O  P
T  O  P  S

Testers love to ask questions
Explain to me how things work
Show me what things do
Tell me why it does it

Letter frequency
T is the most commonly used constanant and the second most common letter in English language
E is the most commonly used letter in many languages
S is the seventh most common letter in English and the third-most common consonant
T (we know this one already)
