We give an explicit criterion for unavoidability of word sets. We characterize extendible, finitely and infinitely as well, elements in them. We furnish a reasonable upper bound and an exponential lower bound on the maximum leghth of words in a reduced unavoidable set of a given cardinality.
Mathematics Subject Classification: 68R15 / 68S05
Key words: Unavoidable set / reduced unavoidable set / extension / reduction.
