The add-an-R game

The One Big Happy from January 7th:

As usual, Ruthie struggles valiantly to make sense of unfamiliar words by reference to familiar ones — in this case, by a spelling strategy that we could think of as the add-an-R game:

CONDO + R = CONDOR

Some other moves in this game:

PIE + R = PIER
WAVE + R = WAVER
CLOVE + R = CLOVER
MOO + R = MOOR

Similar word-transformation games can be played with other letters.
