Collins_Scrabble_Words_2_letters_history.svg

All 2-letter subwords of these words are valid. There are 280,000 words in the official list, and 5,803 of those are composed entirely of tlws. There are 127 tlws, so if we made our mnemonic out of 6-letter words, we would need 22 words.  This is 27 plus IN/OR/ON/ARE for readability, so not so far off.
