When I load your page, Lickety, many of the words have the wrong 2 letters listed to start the blank.

*ah* Shift-Refresh worked. Thanks.
2:37 am

More than impressed... definitely not worthy of that!
2:38 am

Beautiful yiddish words again: Dr7/36 and 6/24, two alt. spellings for A toy similar to a spinning top used in games of chance played by children and adults at Hanukkah.
3:19 am

thanks, sprite!
3:20 am
ramix

um...some of us don't speak yiddish
3:21 am
sprite

I don't speak yiddish, but I am definitely learning some of the words from this game!
3:21 am
olivirgin

so the 6/24 and 7/36 are similar? i have the 7/36, but am clueless on the other
3:22 am
sprite

Just leave out a vowel, olivirgin.
3:22 am
olivirgin

thanks!!!
3:22 am
olivirgin

and like you, i'm learning some yiddish
3:23 am
pinecone05

3:23 am

yw :)
3:25 am
ramix

so how come the grid takes yiddish words but not say french or afrikaans
3:26 am
sprite

Aha... that oceanic growth Se7/48 has a an equine nephew Ho9/90!
Sometimes it does, ramix. The enable dictionary decides what is valid and what not, and the enable dictionary is far beyond nuts.
3:26 am
Atalante

ooooo so it does!
3:27 am
sprite

Such a rewarding grid today :D
3:27 am
Atalante

tis if you can get it to work properly *growls at site*

3:29 am
Angb

The worse thing is I have. Hi Fran
3:29 am
sprite

One of the worst things that can happen to babble... that the site won't keep up with you entering words. I completely sympathize with you, Ata!
WTG Fran!
3:29 am
sprite

And olivirgin too :)
3:29 am
olivirgin

i imagine i won't get much further. my vocabulary isn't as advanced as i'd like it to be. hopefully babble will help with that. lol
3:30 am
scv

when i that happens i start writing them down
3:30 am
scv

and wait until its better
3:30 am
sprite

Babble will, olivirgin! You can't imagine the load of words I learned from this game. Most of them completely useless in common conversation of course. Ywis!
3:30 am
Atalante

I hate it cos you think you've entered them, so you never bother to think of them again ...
3:31 am
sprite

That's exactly the problem, Ata. It is a problem with finishing, because you have to reenter words that you have thrown from memory already.
3:32 am
Atalante

yes! its horrid!
3:32 am
olivirgin

i'm always amazed at the really "duh" ones that i don't get at first. such common words sitting in front of my face, and i just don't get them lol
3:32 am
sprite

Hmz... somehow I get the feeling that one would never say 'thrown from memory'. Deleted? Erased?
3:33 am
sprite

That too, olivirgin! And that doesn't get better, at least not with me, lol.
3:33 am
Atalante

erased sounds good
3:33 am
sprite

Okay, thanks. Will learn proper english some day. Promise ;)
3:33 am
Atalante

*giggles*
3:34 am
olivirgin

you know, i'm so used to seeing you guys give clues in conversation, that i start reading waaaaay into things that don't mean anything lol
3:35 am
sprite

LOL! No clues intended in the last few entries, oli!
3:35 am
olivirgin

lol i figured that out finally lol
3:37 am
sprite

Here comes a clue: that Dr7/36 toy rhymes with a Se6/21.
3:38 am
olivirgin

thanks!
3:39 am
sprite

Totally NOT related, but just as much fun, lol. It means a large beer mug with a capacity of one liter (1.1 quarts) and often having a hinged lid.
3:40 am
ramix

hmm...still dont get it. i guess i'll have to google it
3:42 am
sprite

Let me think... for the Dr7... start with "lost all liquid".
Then invert vowels.
Then add first two letters of 'basic schooling'.
3:43 am
olivirgin

okay, any clues for both o? i have 1/2 and 4/7
3:43 am
ramix

ah...got it!!! thanks sprite
3:43 am
olivirgin

and i keep staring and staring hoping for something to jump out
3:44 am
sprite

Did you all get the wet sounding Wa9/90? Important point of division or transition between two phases, conditions, etc.
(Could very well be I am the only one this late in finding it, but thought I'd share nontheless.)
3:46 am
ramix

yes i did sprite. i just need one more 9 letter, but i dont know which...and i really really dont want to look at the clues

4:02 am

4:02 am

Probably the best way to find some of the more obscure babble words!
4:03 am

ramix: Re9 and Es9 are almost the same.
4:03 am

um...yeah now i found it! thanks
4:04 am

gosh, I'm being stupid today! come back kitty! I can't see these es9 and re9!

Yeah, but in more strategic terms.
4:06 am
Atalante

that's a very strategic thing to do! :P
4:06 am

Absolutely. But no general would put it that way, hihi.
4:07 am

I can see the newsflash.
"We arrived at the scene, saw there was no freaking way we could win this fight, so we ran away."

Wouldn't it be refreshing if that was whawas said, Sprite? (Good holiday?)
4:08 am
SueMagee

4:09 am

Yeah, great holiday! And it would, SueM! Wouldn't that be great, just in plain language. Some truth. Would freak the hell out of some people, I think.
4:10 am
SueMagee

We wouldn't believe it - that's the trouble.
4:10 am

Monty Python could build a brilliant scene from that, yes!
4:10 am

random aside from mention of supermarkets!
4:12 am
Atalante

actually, not chocolate. I want stroopwaffles covered in chocolate
4:12 am
sprite

Argh, site is weird again. I have no words in my list after Te. Script won't work, not even after a dozen retries. Guess I will log off and on and see if that helps.
4:12 am
sprite

stroopwafels... that's a dutch specialty, Ata!
4:12 am
Atalante

I know! I *adore* them!
4:14 am
sprite

Be sure to send me your address some time, I will send you a package of them :)
4:15 am
Atalante

woot! they are such a treat because we can't get hold of them so easily here, though some shops now do sell them. When we were in Vaals a few weeks ago, we ran straight into a supermarket and bought 3 packets LOL and ate them!
4:16 am
sprite

Site is driving me nuts. No words after Ro, after force-refreshes and restarts of FF and logoffs/logons. Now how am I to check my list for forgotten plurals etc?
4:17 am

its an mean type of yarn
5:12 am

thanks Fran and Ata
5:12 am

5:14 am

5:17 am
Dippnall

cr 8/55 past tense of cr 6/24
5:18 am
Atalante

instantly proved wrong!
5:19 am
FranMag

dippnall, what is the cr6/24 after?
5:19 am
sprite

Oh well, scottish again. I love the sound of it, but it always does me in with babble. For those interested: it is a verbe and it means to oil. We are more acquinted with the Gr-variety.
5:19 am
Dippnall

cr 6/21
5:19 am
sprite

Thanks Dippnall!
5:20 am

WTG Ata :)
5:23 am
periwinkle

I know the movie you are referring to sprite but scottish words are hard for me to find
5:24 am
sprite

For me too, peri. Perhaps Dippnall's clue is more clear.
5:24 am
Atalante

you must be missing something fairly obvious, sprite, in the Cs. check all your plurals and past tenses!
5:25 am
sprite

Found it, Ata. Forgotten plural, as usual. Now for that T (starts checking list)
5:25 am
periwinkle

finally found it, thanks sprite and Dippnall
5:25 am

May I have a clue for the 10 please
5:26 am

peri, compound word, dull as .... plural
5:26 am
FranMag

it's a di 10 peri
5:26 am
Dippnall

yw di 10/112

As non-native speaker I can confess without shame that I always thought the Di10 was spelled with -tch- :)
5:27 am
Atalante

thats even duller ...
5:27 am

Ah, so it exists? That's a relief!

5:37 am

peri, another compound word, it means the area drained by a river, liquid + small building
5:37 am

It is a compound, peri. Wet stuff + something to store stuff in.

It was, as usual, a forgotten plural... *sits down to write 1000 times "I will check for forgotten plurals, singulars, verb forms and so on every time I cannot find a word"*
5:43 am

See Pappou? You could have helped me! :)

is there something wrong with the ratings page? I don't play for the rankings, but it's strange that I haven't missed a grid in weeks and yet my number went down instead of up
5:52 am

they are just generally odd, Ted
5:53 am

I have this beautiful palindrome, but it is dutch...
"Nelli plaatst op 'n parterretrap 'n pot staalpillen"

No idea, Pappou. Did you finish them all?

oh my goodness this is huge, hello back fran

Not finishing one can bring your ranking down, I believe.
5:54 am

I have to look up a few words, Fran, back in a bit.
5:54 am

not finishing one brings it down a lot!

Oh, I know that, but they usually begin to climb again. Anyway, not a big deal, I was just wondering
5:55 am
herinfernallady

oh i didn't know that

it's one of the mysteries of babble pappou!
5:56 am

start from the very beginning, a very good place to start, Sorry, I couldn't resist. LOL
5:56 am

pick a word infernal! :-)
5:56 am
PappouTed

I've got the Sound of Music on my mind
5:57 am

Sound of Music!
5:57 am

The palindrome translates as:
"Nelli puts a bottle of iron pills on a ground floor staircase"
5:57 am
FranMag

sounds better in dutch!
5:57 am
herinfernallady

yep i think ill start with the qu as that erks me followed by the re's. Sprite what does that mean?
5:57 am

"If you play Babble, you begin with A B C"
5:58 am

Hi lady!
5:58 am
herinfernallady

hello sprite
5:58 am
PappouTed

and if you play sudoku you start with 123, LOL

obviously the words were chosen more for the letters than their meaning
5:58 am
herinfernallady

i hate the qus so i think ill get rid of them first
5:59 am
PappouTed

could I have a clue for the at7
5:59 am
FranMag

i usually start with the qus because i like them
5:59 am
sprite

Very true, Fran, it is not a very normal sentence. Why on earth would the girl put a bottle of that stuff on those stairs, right? Anyway, it is a nice one in Dutch ;)
5:59 am
sprite

Pappou: past tense of put in your mouth + people who don't tell the truth.
6:00 am
herinfernallady

my eye keeps going to that spot thats why i start there.
6:00 am

perhaps she was a spy, and the bottle contained secret instructions that she was leaving for her unknown contact

PappouTed - I'm having problems with the rankings page and have been for about a month now. Despite finishing every grid for a month I was always one short. I'm always a day late in having the score added to the total - what I scored yesterday won't be added until tomorrow. Strangley enough I'm not bothered about the figures but I looked at them out of interest to fill in a few minutes before the flip one morning and now that I know they're wrong they annoy me.

amandacath

That's good. Guess she's probably an easy target, though
6:31 am
herinfernallady

clue please for the ce 6/21
6:32 am

tailgating is when people arrive 4-8 hours early for an event--ususally a football game or concert--and grill, and drink and hang out, sprite

6:33 am

6:33 am
amandacath

herinfern - if I recall correctly, its legal or archaic (or legal archaic?) for 'sure, definite'
6:33 am
pam

yeah, the tomato was not the best, but then, no one was hurt!
6:34 am
amandacath

Sprite - the word 'tailgating' comes from the picnickers having pick-up trucks, putting down the tailgate and sitting/eating/drinking from there

To get rid of the error on Firefox, type "about:config" into the address field and then change the dom.max_script_run_time setting to 20.
