Have fun with today's Wednesday Wordplay challenge at the mentalfloss.com Brain Game. And good luck!

Sure, they're all six letters long and begin with an "A." But beyond that, what special trait do the following five words all have in common?

ACTION
ADORED
ANTHEM
ARCHER
ASHORE

Here is the ANSWER.

ANSWER:

Each word can be evenly split into two three-letter words.

ACTION = ACT, ION
ADORED = ADO, RED
ANTHEM = ANT, HEM
ARCHER = ARC, HER
ASHORE = ASH, ORE

NOTE: These types of puzzles sometimes lend themselves to multiple correct answers. If you found a different answer that you feel should count as correct, feel free to include it in the comments.
