A #cube inside a #dodecahedron

The vertices of the cube touch 8 of the dodecahedron’s vertices, and each of its edges lies on a face of the dodecahedron.

@tpfto You probably already know this, but I found the halfway shape between the rounded dodecahedron and the rounded icosahedron by taking linear combinations. It's... a sphere.

More interestingly, I was stunned to discover (though it's easy to check in retrospect) that the cross-section of all these dodecahedral Goursat surfaces in the xy-plane is a perfect circle.

@ColinTheMathmo That seems like it'll waste a guess on something that'll likely give you very little information? The most likely outcome is that none of the letters match, and then you haven't narrowed down the set of possible words very much.

What you describe may be a good strategy for Absurdle though. https://qntm.org/files/absurdle/absurdle.html
