Word Downsizing*

Home / Puzzle Help /

I need help solving this puzzle---- There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word - from nine letters right down to a single letter. What is the original word, and what are the words that it becomes after removing one letter at a time?
Hopefully you will be able to figure this out THANKS!!

* This puzzle belongs to an interesting kind of word puzzles with letter insertion/deletion.
