Re: Words words words!

mathsyperson #3: Incorrect. That is the common misconception as the longest word to be written by the top line of the keyboard.

Zach,
Those are all too good ones, but I am unable to answer a single one. Do post the replies after waiting for more replies, for a reasonable time.

Re: Words words words!

JaneFairfax #4: The question has been appended to show its true meaning. You may only have a single letter that is a vowel, not multiple occurances of the same vowel.
JaneFairfax #6: Incorrect
JaneFairfax #7: Incorrect

lightning #3: That's not even a real word.

Devanté #3: That is not a word
Devanté #6: You be wrong!
Devanté #7: Still wrong. Some of those words aren't real.

Re: Words words words!

mathsyperson #3: Correct. There is no hypen, Devanté. Also, as it is an object, you cannot suffix it with 'er'.
mathsyperson #4: Correct.
mathsyperson #5: No. big_smile
mathsyperson #6/7: Apparently not. However, that was the answer I came up with, but I have been awakened to other variations of words that can end in -mt.

Devanté #3: That's not a real word in the English Language.
Devanté #6: I can't answer questions like that!
Devanté #7: Well, they aren't. Ha.

Re: Words words words!

I suppose that the answer to 3) could only have those extra letters on them if it could be used as a verb. You can swing on swing and slide on a slide, but you also can't roundabout on a roundabout. I can't tell whether you can 3) on a 3).
