Let $A$ be an alphabet and $W$ be a set of words in a free monoid $A*$. Let $S(W)$ denote the Rees quotient over the ideal of $A*$ consisting of all words that are not subwords of words in $W$. We call a set of words $W$ finitely based if the monoid $S(W)$ is finitely based. A letter $x$ in a word $u$ is called linear if $x$ occurs once in $u$, otherwise $x$ is called nonlinear. We find a simple algorithm that recognizes finitely based words among the words in at most two nonlinear letters.
