As before but limiting the word to a maximum of six letters - and avoiding ING if possible. Starting with:

START

TEACH

Hi Chewbacca. This game is where you think of a phrase or sentence to match the letters given before you, then give some letters for the next person to follow.
so START gave rise to Some Teachers Are Really Terrific and then the letters for the next person were TEACH.
