By now you've probably seen questions like this:
My first through fourth are a test. My third through seventh are enough. What am I?
with the answer being
EXAMPLE, since letters 1 through 4 are EXAM and letters 3 through 7 are AMPLE.
The idea is that each clue describes a substring of the solution, and placing the clue answers together in the specified way gives an answer word or phrase.
Now, I noticed that we have several of these types of puzzle:
(and those aren't all!)
I think it's enough to make a tag for this genre. It's certainly common, usually decent quality, and fairly well-liked. But as far as I know, there's no "official" name for them - at least, not one widely used.
So, my question to you is: What should we call these?
I can think of several options: word-assembly, word-division, letter-placement, and word-extraction are the first that come to mind. I'd like to get input from the community, though. Do you have a succinct yet descriptive way to reference these puzzles?
