The word 'therein' is unique because it contains ten other words without rearranging any of its letters.

These words are:

the, there, he, in, rein, her, here, ere, therein, herein.

There*in" (?), adv.

In that or this place, time, or thing; in that particular or respect.


He pricketh through a fair forest, Therein is many a wild beast. Chaucer.

Bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein. Gen. ix. 7.

Therein our letters do not well agree. Shak.
