Okay ... I will look it up again myself (cos I really have forgotten what the word is - I remember what it means, but lol need to look it up again) ... and will come back with another clue.

Aw Feather, don't be giving up so easily.

OK, for this one ... I'll give you some letters in between ...

s t - r - g - a




btw: The 'Similar Topics' is changing all the time ... and starting to generate some interesting similar topics. From this thread, we now have "The Joy of Lex"

Had a peep in ...

The Joy of Lex: (from a forum called 'Liberating Minds')
I saw this neat show on Discovery Times channel called The Joy of Lex.
It has nothing to do with the Superman comics, no. Lex is a shorthand
way to say lexicon. It's an interesting, fun, and sometimes weird look
at the way we use words.

and so ... that has led to exploring more into this very interesting looking forum 'Liberating Minds'. Covering such categories as:
Philosophy
Psychology
Economics
Political & Social Philosophy
Current Political Events
Ethics & Morality
Natural Sciences
Social Sciences
History
Technology
Religion & Mythology
Culture, Literature & Art
etc etc
I'm enjoying reading in there.

Yes, Feather, I thought it would be harder than finding elephant.

As we did at first, just go ahead and put the next word when you know the one you've found fits the previous clues. This saves time and favours choosing words that, although not too easy to guess or find, aren't so obscure that we have to seek confirmation before going ahead with the next one.
If everyone agrees?
We still have the option of proposing a word first if we're not completely sure it fits the bill.

I think the word was provident, but I'm not sure now. Better pass then.

See new word in KitKat's post above.
