Given a dictionary of 4-letter words that have no repeated characters (from this list of words), you must choose ONE of those words, and output that specific word using the following dictionary of block letters:

 .----------------.  .----------------.  .----------------.  .----------------.

Depending on how old you are, you may have just been given an injection of nostalgia from these block-based letters. Then again, past a certain point, you may have the nostalgia from watching your kids spell these block-based words out on their own. First originating in 1693, alphabet blocks were a pretty common education piece of the nuclear family and beyond. We're going to recreate this nostalgia by spelling a word from this list of words.

In other words, this challenge is to pick four letters from the keyspace definition and render them "stacked" in an order specified by the dictionary. You'll notice the dictionary omits 4-letter words like moon as they repeat letters, and are basically cheat-words.

Here is the block structure itself with no character inside:

 .----------------. 
| .--------------. | # Tops are periods.
| |              | |
| |              | |
| |              | |
| |              | |
| |              | |
| |              | |
| |              | |
| '--------------' | # Bottoms are apostrophe's.
 '----------------' 

Rules

  • Characters inside the blocks only use: |/\_'.]-><.
  • Numbers don't exist, nor do symbols; only the letters in the word list.
  • This is a kolmogorov-complexity problem after you've chosen your word, you must output each block exactly as shown.
  • You may output them in any format you want, vertical, horizontal, stacked in a square; however, it must read top-to-bottom, left-to-right. Also, each block must be displayed without being altered, in a coherent format. This is to give more freedom to save bytes and allow a diverse output structure, much like how it would be when playing with blocks.
  • The main competitive element of this challenge is both compression optimization and, like my other problem, also factors in your ability to problem solve given the leg-room of seemingly "aesthetic" choice.

Even stuff that seems like it would cost bytes for you to do:

          | '--------------' || '--------------' |
           '----------------'  '----------------' 

However you can stack the blocks to save yourself bytes is a winner in my book.

This is , lowest byte-count wins.

Try it online! Edit: Saved 16 18 bytes by manually drawing the letters WAY; unfortunately X turns out to be too hard to draw, so it's still printed using a string literal. Saved a further 3 bytes by switching from WAXY to AHOY. Saved another byte by switching to MAYO because I can use the predefined χ variable for 10. Saved a further 3 bytes by repeating the copy of the border in a loop. Explanation:

→⁸↘.↓⁹← '←⁸↗    Draw the outer right half of a block
→⁶↗'↑⁷← .←⁶↘    Draw the inner right half of a block
F³C⁰¦¹¹         Make three copies of the right half of the block

_↘_→'↘.↓\|↙¹←'.__↗→¹↗'↖|←.-
‖M←             Reflect to the left

Full list of letter right halves:

A   ↘_↘⁴↑↘_←|____↑¹→↖\_↓\_              (22 bytes)
H   _↑¹←↑¹ ____↓←|_↓↓³↗↘_←|____↑¹→↑¹←↓_ (35 bytes)
M   ↗²____↓←|_↓↓³↗↘_←|_____↑¹↗²↓↓²↖↙_   (33 bytes)
O   _↘_→'↘.↓\|↙¹←'.__↗→¹↗'↖|←.-↘        (28 bytes)
W   ↘²↑↑²← _↑¹ _____↓←|_↓↓⁴↖←__↖²↘      (30 bytes)
X    ____¶|_  _|¶ / /¶' <¶'\ \_¶|____|¶ (35 bytes)
Y   ↗²← _↑¹ ____↓←|↙_↙²|_↓←|___↘        (28 bytes)

If O, W, X or Y is the last letter then the last byte can be removed. On the other hand, M, W and Y cost 2 bytes as a first letter or a byte as the letter after O; H costs a byte as a first letter. With the above byte counts, the following words are possible:

MAYO 155 bytes (43+33+22+28+28+2-1)
AHOY 156 bytes (43+22+35+28+28+1-1)
WAXY 159 bytes (43+30+22+35+28+2-1)
WHOA 160 bytes (43+30+35+28+22+2)
HOAX 163 bytes (43+35+28+22+35+1-1)
WHAM 165 bytes (43+30+35+22+33+2)
WHOM 171 bytes (43+30+35+28+33+2)

How?

The general idea is to choose letters which have left-right symmetry with minimal character translation so as to (a) reduce the base in which the data may be encoded and (b) keep the "reflection" function small.

The letter H has left-right symmetry with no need for translation. The letters W and A also have left-right symmetry if the /s on the left become \s on the right. Unfortunately there are not four such letters (with the same sides having the same slopes of slashes).

Letters such as O introduce more characters, which increases the base needed for encryption making for a far larger number and hence more bytes.

M, however, only introduces the other slash - if the half rows for the M are stored in reverse and with the wrong slashes, the base is kept at four and a post-decryption, post-reflection reversal of just these rows puts everything right again (this is the U4¦ in Link 1). This also means the character translation only needs to cater for \ becoming / and not the other way around too (i.e. Ṛ“\/”y; rather than Ṛ“\/“/\”y;).

“...’ṃ“ |\_”s7;€“| |”µṚ“\/”y;µ€s6U4¦ - Link 1: middle rows of blocks: no arguments
“...’                                - base 250 number
     ṃ“ |\_”                         - convert to base 4 with digits [0-3]="_ |\"
            s7                       - split into sevens
                “| |”                - literal "| |"
              ;€                     - concatenate €ach
                     µ               - monadic chain separation (call that rhs)
                             µ€      - for each r in rhs:
                      Ṛ              -     reverse r
                       “\/”y         -     convert any '\'s to '/'s
                            ;        -     concatenate with r
                               s6    - split into sixes
                                   ¦ - apply to indexes...

Yeah, it is not very impressive. But I put this much work in and I don't see any easy way to get a lot better :)

_=>{r=(s,x)=>s.repeat(x)

Z='| |'
q=(s,x)=>Z+r(_=' ',x)+s+r(_,14-s.length-x)+Z
h=r('-',14)
Y=(a,o)=>` .-${h}-. \n| .${h}. |
`+a.map((s,i)=>q(s,[2,1,3,3,2,1][i]+o)).join(N='\n')+N+q(r(_,14))+`
| '${h}' |
 '-${h}-' 
`
return Y([i=r(U='_',5),j='|_   _|',Z,Z+'    _',l='_| |___/ |',m=`|${i}____|`],1)+Y([i,j,Z,Z,I=U+Z+U,J=`|${i}|`],3)+Y([e=r(U,9),f='|_   ___  |',g=Z+'_  \\_|','|  _|',I,J],0)+Y([e,f,g,'|  _|  _',l,m],0)}
