What the hell is pule? Pele is a name I guess, although I prefer the spelling "Pelé".
And what is pyle? A Japanese person saying "pyre"? :D

Nice work. I've never heard "mo" used that way, but I'm guessing it's used somewhere. None of the others ate objectionable at all imo.

ball, bell, bill, boll, bull. boll is apparently a type of seed package or can be used to describe the making of such. All of these can be pluralized. balled, belled, billed, bolled, and bulled are all also apparently words.
