    I'm quite sure "What is the shortest English word that contains the letters a,b,c,d,e and f?" doesn't say "What is the shortest English word that contains only the letters a,b,c,d,e and f?"

    if the word isn't in Webster's, I would say that it isn't a proper answer. bedface is an industry term. However, the correct answer is fabdec, which is the name of my cat.

      Which inspires me to cabfed, when I feed my cat in the cab of my truck.

        Please!!! Let us never result to racial language! Everyone knows cabfed is a pejorative adjective for the Irish.
