    Hello Joel,

    fancy seeing you here! Were you thinking of Lynn when you came up with your example?

    Just to clarify Joel's question.

    If I wrote a word ,RAIN in this example, like this

    R
    A
    I
    N

    and then added words to each of the letters, not necessarily related to the word itself, like this

    Rude
    Animals
    In
    Nigeria

    What would this be called?

    Thanks.
