Though I never got it to work, it seems like you should be able to isolate
1. tabulating frequencies for all final strings of length 1, 2, 3, ...
2. walking through each word from back to front, trying to find a spot where
the final string becomes
much less frequent.
E.g. if the word is "SOLUTION" there would be lots ending in "-N", "-ON",
but not too many ending in "-UTION".
