Are your Scrabble rivals getting cocky again with their seemingly insurmountable scores? Well, it’s high time to take advantage of this WordsRated list and disassemble their cranial cords like a boss!
Besides the two related terms we slyly slipped in the above text (ahem, cocky and cords), where would “couch,” “cocoa,” and “corny” be without 5-letter words starting with CO? Good thing they’re here to stay, and they’re quite many— 220 to be exact.
Abbreviated for your convenience
The English language is an ever-evolving means of communication. This is evidenced by certain words having short forms. Here are some 5-letter abbreviations starting with CO and their corresponding unabbreviated forms:
- Combo – Combination
- Comms – Communications
- Comfy – Comfortable
- Confs – Conferences
- Convo – Conversation
- Coati – Coatimundi
5-letter animals starting with CO
If you’re an animal lover, this list won’t disappoint. From cute and fluffy to exotic and weird, they’re all here.
For instance, there’s the “corgi,” which is a cuddly canine characterized by its long body and short legs. Joining the adorable club is the mint-devouring “coala”—yes, it’s an alternative spelling for koala.
“Cobra” and “coati” are also part of this bunch. The former is an extremely venomous snake native to the African and Asian continents. The latter is a type of raccoon that uses its long and flexible snout to unearth sustenance from the soil.
Now, would you believe us if we told you that “coral” and “conch” are animals, too? You should, because they are! Usually mistaken for a plant or rock, a coral is an invertebrate that captures floating food (think algae) in the water. A conch, on the other hand, is a type of edible mollusk or sea snail found mostly in the Caribbean.
