Hi Jen. advice : run while you can, before you get babblified!
12:01 am
LeslieAnn

jen, you can try the "help" icon above or the angelsong's resource page link below. basically you have to find as many words as you can by connecting letters, like boggle
12:01 am
GreyWoulf

Jen77

that makes it a little bit harder lol
12:15 am
Jen77

how do you know who wins
12:15 am
stidmama

and words are a minimum length of 4 letters... there is a list published on every archived grid... but the real winning is setting a goal and meeting it. most of us don't treat it like a real competition.
12:16 am

hi all...newbie here...if I have 9 of the 10 Q's...is there a way to figure out the length of the missing one??
12:22 am
stidmama

there is, by asking people on the chat log or by using one of the "clue" lists. however, Lickety's Clues are not up for today yet. And the Babbler's Anonymous Clues aren't usually up until much later in the day. both have links in the "friends of babble" box at the bottom of this page

You think so, Freckle? I think I have to learn them somewhere, and if I just don't know the word, what chance do I have?
1:20 am
Freckle

well, if u dont know the word you should read more. Not just look things up in the dictionary
1:20 am
ilandrah

looking them up is no different than using clues from other players, except that you do your own footwork
1:21 am
joey

and how often do you read/use a word like enate - from last night's grid?
1:21 am
ilandrah

nicest
1:21 am

Oh, Freckle, that's ridiculous. I read obsessively, but there is no person alive who knows all the words in the English language.
1:21 am

who said that babble used all the words in the dictionary?!?

i actually like reading the dictionary. LOL! Learn new words that would not be found in books on a normal basis.

anyone who's playing this game is getting smarter, no matter how they do it

It certainly uses many of the extremely rare and unused ones

at least they're working their brain, rather than rotting it watching tv

define rar and unused?

1:35 am
rycaut

perhaps we can help each other, I have two f4's, 3 f5's, 3 f7's, and one f8
1:35 am
SamanthaJoy

You're missing an F6 that's a variant spelling of one of your F5s. You'll get it in a minute
1:36 am
rycaut

:)
1:36 am
corpsvalue

thanks sam! my F's are done.
1:37 am
rycaut

the f7 you are probably missing is what baby's wear...
1:37 am
SamanthaJoy

Nope, got that
1:37 am
rycaut

anyone have all the q's? I'm missing one
1:38 am
SamanthaJoy

Yep, I have all of those. Whatcha got?
1:38 am
Nim

I'm missing one q too
1:38 am
rycaut

hmm then it is yet another varient of the same root - either a base for the f8 or one who f4's
1:39 am
SummerBreeze44

The f7 your missing is probably what some people play "under the table"
1:39 am
SamanthaJoy

There are two Q4s, four Q5s, two Q6s, one Q7, and one Q8.
1:39 am
rycaut

1 q4, 4 q5's, 2 q6's, 1 q7, 1 q8,
1:39 am
SamanthaJoy

D'oh! That was it, Breeze. Thank you.
1:40 am
SummerBreeze44

yw :)
1:40 am
SamanthaJoy

You're just missing one of the fours, then. That's not too bad.
1:40 am
rycaut

got it - thanks
1:40 am
Nim

Thanks!
1:41 am
SamanthaJoy

"Come on without, come on within, you'll not meet noone like the Mighty Qu***." But there's one letter too many in the proper name.
1:41 am
Nim

I was missing a Q8 but got it now!
1:41 am
SamanthaJoy

I know you got it already, but I was having too much fun with that clue to stop.
1:41 am

flerie- think of a bigfoot

flerie

it's ok..sam
1:47 am
Baafour

just got back-- I couldn't believe that the name for Bigfoot got accepted--y
1:47 am
joey

y is something like Big Foot
1:48 am
Baafour

and plural--more than one--yikes
1:48 am
Nim

thanks for the clue :)
1:49 am
Nim

or more like 'clues'
1:49 am
rycaut

any clues on the various vowels.. I'm only making slight progress on the e's, almost none on the o's or the i's
1:49 am
Baafour

lol, nim

I think I slept for too long because now I'm completely hyperactive, heh - I can't even type properly :D

Well, there's one very inviting e (in the upper right) that has a few variants . . .
1:50 am

1:53 am
rycaut

thx
1:57 am
djdevo

i don't think lickety's gonna have clues up for awhile on this one
1:57 am
SamanthaJoy

Does Lickety solve the puzzle first, then post clues, or does he get them from another source?
1:58 am
djdevo

i dunno. good question
1:58 am
joey

there is no way he could solve it first - I believe that he has a program that he runs on it. it is often up 5 or 10 minutes after the grid goes up
1:59 am
SamanthaJoy

I was all prepared to start fearing the man, if he did this in his head . . .
1:59 am
joey

OMG - that would be outrageous if he did that. my candidate for head of mensa
2:03 am
rycaut

2:05 am
joey

that's not bad........ i have just probably been playing longer tonight
2:05 am
SamanthaJoy

The one inthe lower left is a 5 letter word
2:05 am
SamanthaJoy

errr, one of the ones, I meant, sorry
2:05 am
rycaut

I think there are 4 there - don't have any of them, could easily beliee they are all longish
2:05 am
SamanthaJoy

I think my brain is turning to mush
2:06 am
Lamancha

Morning all - bit of a big boy then?
2:06 am
joey

an i 5 from the left has 3 vowels
2:07 am
Jamsicle

are there answers somewhere?
2:07 am
SamanthaJoy

I have two of them, one's a 4/4 and one's a 6/18
2:07 am
SamanthaJoy

good luck
2:07 am
SamanthaJoy

and there's a 5/12 in there too
2:08 am
SamanthaJoy

No, Jamsicle, we're just helping each othr out with clues we've figured out
2:08 am
rycaut

any more hints - I'm not seeing anything
2:08 am
Jamsicle

wow... I'm shocked there are 237 words!!!
2:08 am
SamanthaJoy

the two longer ones start with two vowels
2:09 am
SamanthaJoy

io*** and io****
2:09 am
joey

and they are scientific words
2:09 am
SamanthaJoy

Yeah, Jam, I am beyond intimidated
2:09 am
talya

ionic
2:10 am
joey

150 and I am really gone
2:10 am
rycaut

dr god should filter this chat against the wordlist
2:10 am
SamanthaJoy

130 and keeping a decent pace behind you
2:10 am
SamanthaJoy

G'night
2:10 am
rycaut

make it impossible to type a word in here that is on the list
2:11 am
SamanthaJoy

That's a damned good idea, rycaut
2:11 am
Baafour

How can I get any words then?
2:11 am
rycaut

got two of them so far - thanks for the clues
2:11 am
Jamsicle

are you saying you only have 130 pts left?
2:12 am
Baafour

kidding...
2:12 am
SamanthaJoy

No, I've found 130 words so far
2:12 am
rycaut

ideally it would keep the first letter then just overwrite with ***'s
2:12 am
SamanthaJoy

*ttthhhpppbbttt* Baa
2:12 am
rycaut

so we would have a clue, just not always intentially. :)
2:12 am
Baafour

lol
2:13 am
Baafour

is *ttthhhpppbbttt* a word? goody
2:13 am
djdevo

what's the benefit of being pro... don't see any difference
2:14 am
SamanthaJoy

In theory, dj, eventually the tile stats at the bottm are going to vanish to non-pro users
2:14 am
SamanthaJoy

This is a new layout for this page, and a temporary benefit to all
2:14 am
SamanthaJoy

well, to new users
2:14 am
djdevo

so, in theory, nothing but my being out of $15 bucx... :S
2:15 am
Baafour

m-o-n-e-y, sadly
2:15 am
SamanthaJoy

*shrug* You could have asked *before* you paid your money . . . .
2:15 am
rycaut

it also lets you use the icons - and supports a good game and the developer behind it
2:15 am
djdevo

*eyeroll* Oh well. I've spent $ on worse.
2:16 am
rycaut

when I have the cash I'll go up to pro - have a lot of bills at the moment
2:16 am
djdevo

i need help w/ my last F
2:17 am
Baafour

It seems as if the best things (online) start out being free, then they charge money, or get ads, and then they're not fun anymore-- the web is the last freebie and should remain that way
2:17 am
djdevo

I have 4,7 5,16 4,7 7,40 x2 8,55 5,16 7,40 5,20
2:17 am
SamanthaJoy

Well, bandwidth is expensive, Baa . . . Whatcha got already, dj?
2:18 am
rycaut

well, as many of my friends (and myself at times) are the people building these types of apps - I don't begrudge developers income
2:18 am
Nim

I don't have a credit card :( Well, not one that works here... Otherwise I'd already upgraded to pro.
2:18 am
Baafour

I guess someone's gotta get richer...
2:18 am
SamanthaJoy

You're missing an F6 that's a variant spelling of one of your F5s.
2:19 am

2:19 am

You're welcome, dj
2:19 am
djdevo

4 words 'til 100, then off to bed
2:20 am

Also, still reluctant to give out credit card info
2:20 am

2:55 am

It will, but it hasn't yet
2:55 am

oh, well the pink handbag and the flag and the icon are soooo cute!!
2:55 am

At least I trust in Dr_God that it will
2:55 am
Miss ABS

hope it doesn't, don't have the cash to go pro and am enjoying the stats.

Those aren't handbags, Mr P, they're people

3:03 am
Miss ABS

Yeah definitely, actually I'm a teacher... my entire class gets into this. I generally print it off with one hour left to go and the kids that have finished all their work get to have a go at making words. Some of them really get into it. Makes me smile.
3:04 am
Miss ABS

I print it off without the words I've gotten though so that they have to think of them on their own. Tis cute!
3:04 am
mrpresident

well, bless your heart!! a real babbler!!

Good on you !!
3:04 am
Ornith

that's a great idea ABS - wish my teachers had done that. I was always the kid with all the extra time.
3:05 am
Miss ABS

LOL I've got a few of them that finish as fast as they can and as neat (so they don't have to redo it) so they can babble. Some even ask if they can "borrow the sheet" for recess.
3:05 am
Miss ABS

I didn't sign up for a long time, just printed off the sheet from the start page.
3:05 am
Ornith

3:32 am

Oh no! 237 words, and 17 of them re's. Can I be bothered? I'll have to think about it. Might be back later - might not!

Sorry for the stupidity in the log, I am as bad as those trolls sometimes!

I won't make silly jokes like that again!
3:36 am

I'll go away and have breakfast first. Weather is not very bright so far, I might be forced to stay inside

There were trolls yesterday? Glad I missed them.
3:38 am

I managed to miss the trolls - Dr God managed to erase their stuff from the chat log but it sounded grim judging by the reaction.

3:44 am
Lamancha

Although one of my oldest friends had cancer and made me shave his head during therapy as it was all falling out - now that was weird - I think I was more freaked out than him!
3:44 am

It's the time you are finally becoming interesting ;)
3:45 am
licketySplitAUS

Yeah I tried it once - at a party! Wow - did I regret that!
3:45 am

Ow, that's something, Lamancha.
3:45 am

Cancer though - that's a different story - and a horrible one. Hope it all works out.
3:47 am
Lamancha

Over 10 years ago - he's in full remission - never did get all his hair back though - even better I'm Godfather to his first daughter - born several years after his treatment despite a big dose of chemo
3:47 am

Hope he will be alright, Lamancha. Must have been really something to do that for him, I can imagine feeling freaked out a bit.

that's great, lamancha

That is beautiful!
3:48 am

Great news Lamancha! Good to hear success stories! The hair - well there is lots of us!

I gotta go deal with dinner. Nice chatting - Happy word finding!
3:49 am

Enjoy dinner!
And don't worry, Lamacha, your words are perfect.
3:50 am

Oh, a babble wedding! That'll be exciting.
3:51 am

Just keep saying how beautiful the bride is and how grateful you are to everyone you've ever met.
3:51 am

Not my speech, sprite - the one my best man's due to make....:0
3:51 am

We've known each other too long and done too many things together.....
3:51 am

lol!
3:52 am

LOL! Yeah, THAT will be bad. Wish I could hear it. :)
3:54 am
Haz1558

our best man began his speech by saying that if HE were choosing a best man he would select someone with memory loss and a fairly perpetual dose of laryngitis!
3:55 am
Lamancha

So what can I give him to induce amnesia and loss of speech?
3:55 am
Lamancha

Apart from Blackmail
3:55 am
Ornith

booze?
3:55 am
Haz1558

Take him to a football match and ply him with drink.
3:55 am
Lamancha

I'm afraid that might make things worse Ornith!
3:56 am
Ornith

more booze than that :P
4:00 am
sprite

Settle it by wearing earplugs.
4:01 am
Ornith

that won't work unless he gets everyone ELSE to wear em
4:02 am
sprite

At least he won't know what he is embarrassed over. :)
4:02 am
mrpresident

I find that a fork placed just in the right place with the right pressure ensures a very nice speech from any best man!!
4:02 am
sprite

LOL mrP!
4:02 am
Lamancha

Now there's an idea....
4:03 am
mrpresident

You have met lickety... you haven't met his friends!!
A fork is the best cash scenario I can give you!
4:05 am

If a landscape has more cities than fields, wouldn't you say it was T7 than others?
4:06 am

*peers at grid* apparently not :P

4:07 am

Omg, there I go again. Sorrrrry!

mrpresident

press tab after chatting.... then LOL
4:08 am

More To4/8-like.
4:08 am
Haz1558

But the to6/30 refers to a person rather than a place
4:08 am
Ornith

ah
4:09 am
sprite

Ah, and it has a plural. I feel much better now.
4:10 am
sprite

Tab after posting a chat message? Let's see...
4:10 am
mrpresident

did I tell ya!?
4:11 am
Ornith

yay, 100 words! darn british spellings :P
4:11 am
sprite

A tab brings me to my own icon, I see. Better to learn to click in the Add Word box after each chat, I fear. I still think it is not user-friendly.
4:11 am
mrpresident

it gets you out of the chat box at least!!
4:11 am
Lamancha

Now, now, Queens English and all that.... ;)
4:12 am
Haz1558

Now, now, Ornith - we are very tolerant of non-British spelling. Often it gives us double words!
4:12 am
sprite

I am at a nice, symmetrical 111 words.
4:12 am
Ornith

heh. I just forgot you lot use -ise instead of -ize for a bit there
4:12 am
Lamancha

103 and need to go and buy some teak oil ....
4:13 am

All the Britishers now go looking for words ending in -ise.....

Hah led me to my most hated word in the language...d 7,32

rosalind230

any clue's for the 10 letter word
4:13 am
Ornith

well, there's definately one, haven't seen any others yet
4:14 am

Some great clues in the log, rosalind, if you scroll down a bit.
4:14 am
Haz1558

Lamancha, my poor husband is at one right now!
4:14 am
Ornith

rosalind: greek roots for "different" and "power"; sounds like a straight guy's dinner
4:14 am
Lamancha

I feel for him Haz
4:15 am
sprite

Lamancha: I am right with you on that!
4:15 am
Ornith

yeah, I don't like the d7 very much either
4:16 am
mrpresident

odd spot!: did you know a d& invented the electric chair?
4:16 am
Ornith

yes, actually. figures, doesn't it?
4:16 am
Haz1558

But they're a lot better than they used to be. All that pain relief - injectable pain relief, mind you.
4:16 am
mrpresident

d7 I mean
4:16 am
Lamancha

That doesn't surprise me in the slightest
4:17 am

I am not surprised, mrP. Not surprised at all. Fits into their states of mind right away.
4:17 am

A straight guy's dinner? Nothing that a gay raw vegan would want to eat I presume...
4:17 am

Must go - until later ciao
4:18 am

Later!
4:18 am

Haz, let's not invite THAT conversation please!

ack! cat won't stop grabbing my hand to give me kisses!
4:21 am

I shall go sleep soon. But first I want to rant:
4:22 am
mrpresident

rant away!! this is the right chat log for that!!
4:22 am
sprite

Comes from being irresistable, Ornith. Learn to live with it. Or wash your hands :)
4:22 am
SamanthaJoy

A Babbler came in here this morning and told me that it was "cheating" to look up words that I didn't know
4:22 am
Rlee

evening all
4:22 am
Haz1558

Ignore him or her.
4:22 am
Ornith

hehe, he'll kiss me even if I'm right out of the shower... he's just one of those cats
4:22 am
SamanthaJoy

She informed me that if I didn't know these words, I simply ought to read more.
4:23 am
mrpresident

did you tell that babbler to FO and mind their own business!!?
4:23 am
sprite

Probably a babbler who hasn't a life of his/her own then.
4:23 am
SamanthaJoy

Politely, but yes
4:23 am
Ornith

Samantha, that's crazy. You'd have to read geology, ichthyology, etc etc... plus know words even dictionary.com has never heard of.
4:23 am
sprite

I think looking up words you don't know is a very active way of learning.
4:23 am
rosalind230

thank's for the clue ornith
4:24 am
sprite

I'd say she put it somewhere dark, where no one ever comes, and keep it there. Have fun babbling in your own way, Samantha.
4:24 am
SamanthaJoy

I think "crazy" was a word I used often, and I actually brought up a specific example, whereupon she slunk away and hushed her mouf'
4:24 am
mrpresident

I believe that looking up words, no matter where, is a fantastic way of learning them!
What Sprite said...
4:24 am
Ornith

yw rosalind, though it's not of my own invention :)
4:24 am
Haz1558

This is a game for enjoyment. You will learn words that you will never see written down anywhere else. I consider myself to have a good vocabulary but nothing would prepare you for some of these obscure words. You are NOT cheating.
4:24 am
Ornith

yeah, I have a huge vocabulary, and there's usually a few dozen I have to look up.
4:24 am
SamanthaJoy

OK, my rant is over. I'ma go sleep now
4:25 am
Ornith

night Samantha (although if you do want something to read for vocabulary that is fun, I recommend China Mieville)
4:25 am
Haz1558

Sleep well and enjoy finding the other words later.
4:25 am
sprite

Sleep well, and dream of all the new words you learned ;) I have learned a lot of words here by looking them up after I found something really weird.
4:25 am
mrpresident

Good on you for standing up to this babbler Samantha! enjoy your sleep knowing that a2z is your friend!

4:27 am

Please do not give away the 10 here! Not yet anyway. Good morning everyone.
4:31 am

he10; greek roots for "different" and "power"; sounds like a straight guy's dinner (no, I was not cool enough to make up that clue)
4:31 am
Ornith

relax matty, not going to give words outright
4:31 am
sprite

We don't give words, only clues and hints, kat. The fun of the game is in finding the words.
4:31 am
kat.dav

are ya still me friend ornith
4:32 am
Ornith

sure kat, but it's unfair to everyone to give out words. Ruins the fun
4:32 am

Whew - relax programme in progress...how's the grid today? Everyone having a good Saturday?

4:33 am
kat.dav

what did you tell her ornith
4:33 am
Ornith

just how to read the wordlists, kat.
4:34 am
sprite

If I am not mistaken, the game is from japanese origin. Could be wrong, though. Would explain a lot of the terminology!
4:34 am
kat.dav

how do you
4:34 am
Ornith

lol sprite. I think it's just a lot of anime fans...
4:34 am
kat.dav

ornith have you got ties
4:34 am
Ornith

kat, if you look at the wordlists, like lickety's (linked below tile stats), you will see stuff like ic4/6.
4:34 am
sprite

Please kat, don't post words in the chatlog.
4:35 am
Ornith

it means "a four letter word starting with ic, worth 6 points"
4:36 am
kat.dav

no it hasnt
4:36 am
Ornith

so a hint might look like: qu5/16 - shhhh!
4:37 am

so my ultimate goal is the he10/98 huh
4:37 am

4:38 am

4:52 am

looks like a little flower at that size
4:52 am
sprite

I suggested by email to make the cursor jump back to the Add Word box automatically, but that suggestion wasn't received at all well. I was told not even 1% of the babblers post words in the log. How much of the regular chatters that is, is not to be discussed, I am afraid. Too bad, I still think it would be a simple and elegant solution.
4:52 am
mattygroves

Cool What time is it there?

it is a flower of a tree- Bauhinia. Right now it is going on 6pm Saturday evening.

Dr_God says it would be counter-intuitive and he thinks almost nobody has a problem with posting words in the log. I truly feel different!

might be counterintuitive, but we've definately all posted words in the log

oops-I swear I didn't do that on purpose(-: Should those of us who are online right now all write to him?
5:05 am
Haz1558

An e-mail from each of us might help to back you up. Plus a look at the chat log.
5:05 am

I am glad to see you again, Dianne. Hope you will post more often, even if you don't like the setup.
5:05 am
mrpresident

(don't look at the chat log!!) NO... I don't want to be the example!!
5:06 am

I hope so, Haz, it really made me feel bad to see he thought I was making waves all by myself.
5:06 am
Dianne

It is nice to "see" all of you again - I will try to get use to this but........I don't know where to look half the time :)
5:06 am

mrP, you wouldn't be alone! I am with you, and Eva, and lots of others.
5:07 am
Atalante

why don't we write one email "signed" by everyone here?
5:07 am

Would also be good, better even. A full mailbox isn't a pleasure.
5:08 am
Atalante

yeah ... not at all!
5:09 am

Who wants to do the honors? Better not be me :(
5:09 am

I just wrote individually

I'll do it if people are ok with that

Well, no way to avoid that full mailbox then, but I think Dr_God is used to that.

For those of us who are rather computer disfunctional - my whole set up is too large and I can't see all of anything at once. Yikes, maybe I need to go to computers for dummys school.

For something completely different: I submit EroD7 for a really sexy torturer.
5:13 am

EroD7? wth?
5:14 am
Ornith

I take it you mean the "power" root again, sprite?
5:15 am
Ornith

I dunno, I feel like that ought to be some sort of machine..... a sex machine!
5:15 am
sprite

No, I mean the person I don't want to open my mouth for. If he is really sexy, he would make a beautiful 10.
5:16 am
Ornith

ohhhh.
5:16 am
Ornith

that's a weird fetish you have there :P
5:16 am
Dianne

E7 - sounds more like an electronic rat!
5:16 am
talya

o...k...
5:16 am
sprite

Part of it is E7, though. Lol Ornith, more of a word fetish than the actual thing!
5:17 am
Ornith

talya, we're making up silly compounds, sorry to be so confusing
5:17 am
mattygroves

My brain must be broken. You've all lost me on yhour clues. I'm still looking for the ce5/12 and ce6/21 following. (I don't work strictly in order, so it's not the first words I've got lol)
5:17 am
sprite

Oh yeah, sorry! I was only joking, making up words that are NOT valid, giving them a meaning.
5:18 am
talya

ok, brain not broken, just about to haha
5:19 am
sprite

matty: ce5 is woman's belts or girdles, especially as worn in ancient Greece. Ce6 is same, insert a vowel.
5:20 am
sprite

And ce5 is a plural, but not ending in -s.
5:21 am
mattygroves

Thought I had it, but it doesn't work...
5:22 am
mattygroves

OK, got the five
5:22 am
Ornith

oh, THAT's why I knew it as something other than a belt. it's also a sort of gauntlet.
5:23 am
Ornith

though I'm having trouble figuring out where the extra vowel for the ce6 goes.
5:23 am
sprite

Could very well be the case indeed, Ornith. Somehow it does ring a bell.
5:23 am
Dianne

matty - for the 6 use the same first 4 leeters and think of the word for a child's plaything but change the last letter.
5:23 am
mattygroves

Me too!
5:23 am
Ornith

I know it's in Diablo2 someplace
5:24 am

Nice one, Dianne!
5:24 am

thanks Dianne!

nope, I only have 2 so far
5:25 am

5:25 am
Eva

that's the only one I have too.
5:25 am

I only have 2 of the 8 so far and I am going to have to leave the rest for tomorrow - time to get ready for a dinner out tonight. It was nice to talk with you all again. Bye for now.
5:25 am
Atalante

there's an fo8/55
5:26 am
Ornith

there's an st8, participle of st6/24, which is a tale with an extra vowel
5:26 am
Ornith

the fo has me stumped though; all the fo's except the ones you walk on do
5:26 am
sprite

I have Q8 - makes less noisy
F8: like a centipede, superlative
R7: withdrawn
5:27 am
saintfranny

ok, for those ce clues you all just gave, is it using the e on the left or the right of the c? :(
5:27 am
Ornith

lol F8 is a silly word!
5:27 am
sprite

Bye Dianne, I enjoyed your company! Have fun tonight.
5:27 am
Ornith

saintfranny, the e on the right of the c
5:27 am
Eva

the centipede clue is brilliant!
5:27 am

The right one.
5:27 am
saintfranny

ok tx. will keep at it
5:28 am
mattygroves

I'm still on the ce6/21...
5:28 am
Ornith

matty, if it helps, use the lower T, not the upper one
5:29 am
sprite

Dianne's clue was great, matty. First 4 of the Ce5, then think of the thing a kid likes to play with. Spelled wrongly, the last part.
5:29 am

just got the re. Thanks sprite!

Se8/40: european brown bat. Close to an important neurotransmitter, leave out 'on'.

5:50 am
Eva

the bat was easy. Just looked up the italian word for 17 but that was of absolutely no help. Sorry for the denseness!
5:52 am
sprite

Nope, it is just hard to clue otherwise. Let me think...
First two letters of what you do with a letter or email.
Then a cold delicatesse.
Then preposition i4/4, without the first letter.
5:55 am
Eva

cold delicatesse?
5:55 am
sprite

Very common. And fattening.
5:55 am
Atalante

usually with cream on the end ...
5:56 am

meat?
5:56 am

Sugar, mostly.
5:56 am

Made of milk.

Nope, that is a tough one, uncommon, matty.
Co + vowel + a group of webpages.
