    Whats the longest word you can spell on a keyboard only using 1 line of letters? (Either Q-P, A-L or Z-M)

    Typewriter, no? I remember reading that a long time ago. Let's see..
    It can't be Z-M, no vowels.
    A-L has only A... maybe half-something? Nothing I can find anywhere near ten letters.
    Q-P has all the rest of the vowels, including Y. However, it only has 5 consenants (other than Q.) I found powertire, if that's a word, but still only 9. Troutpower? Can't find anything, I assume it's typewriter.

    In the top line, you can type:
    1) Typewriter
    2) Repertoire
    3) Perpetuity
    4) Proprietor

    The second line, you can type: Alfalfa.

    The third line, you can't create any existing english words.

    I believe that is two words, but it's still only 9 letters;
    my four have ten letters each.
