Guess the word

Post by Stardust on 4th May 2011, 13:20

With the first and last letters,
plus the total number of letters
and a one-word or short definition,
guess the word.

e.g. starts with s, ends with e, 11 letters, clue = sparkle: s---------e
answer : scintillate

New word, starts with e, ends with h, 10 letters, clue = quench: e--------h



Be grateful for even the smallest thing, blessings come in many disguises.

OK, I'll give you another clue ...
The word is German in its origin - made up of two German words: One meaning 'damage' or 'harm', the other meaning 'joy'.

Yes, that's the word I'm looking for. It is used in English vocabulary, perhaps rarely, but it's usage is accepted in Scrabble for instance! Most of the words we use in everyday speech are derived from 'foreign' sources anyway, aren't they?

f----d if I can think of anything that fits in there. scratchhead
Gonna have to look this one up. study

12 letters---starts f ends e means illustration.

Totally stumped on this one. I actually had to dig out my trusty old-faithful, dog-eared, tattered Crossword Lists/Solver ... Thick and heavy, its contents boast "over 200,000 for the crossword fan". On the page for the 13-lettered 'F' words ending in 'e', it lists only 3 words:

FERROCONCRETE - reinforced concrete

FOREKNOWLEDGE - Knowledge or awareness of something before its existence or occurrence; prescience.

FREQUENTATIVE - Expressing or designating repeated action

Illustration doesn't fit with any of these. What can it be?

Feather - did you use your fingers AND thumbs this time? sidestep

EDIT: OOOPS!!!!! I've just noticed ... it's 12 letters I should be looking for, not 13. Embarassed albino

Nope. geek Unless it is fictionalize. Is it?


I did come across a really cute word that I've not heard of before though.
Flittermouse drunken
I like it. Smile I think I'm going to make that my word of the week.
My Lists Book doesn't given the meanings of the words, so I had to look it up.

A flittermouse is a bat. Called also flickermouse, flindermouse, and flintymouse.

Well, exactly! That's why I said I hadn't got it yet ... "fictionalize" (with the American spelling) was the only word listed there that comes anywhere near "an illustration" ... and of course it would not be correct. It's still got me well and truly stumped. Someone better come up with summat soon. giggle
