Vertical and Horizontal word

If WEAR was on the board vertically, can I add SIEVE to the top but horizontally to form SWEAR and SIEVE

You sure can! Above is a picture of the usual move sequence included in the Scrabble box rules to show what sorts of plays are legitimate.

If you have a look at Turn 3 in this picture, you'll see that it is exactly the kind of move you're talking about.

Hope that helps,
