ENTIRE CHAT LOG

12:13 am
boatierra

Most of my papers in high school and college were very pleonastic before I edited them down.
12:15 am
boatierra

Awwwww, won't take taebo. Darn the luck.
12:17 am
nutkin

woohoo i found an 8
12:20 am
Riff

lot of interesting words in this one!
12:21 am
boatierra

So far I have found two elements.
12:22 am
nutkin

oooh a spelling bee word from the 5th grade
12:23 am
Riff

snarf isn't a valid word? >:O
12:50 am
Pleonastic 1

No, but b--f apparently is.
12:51 am
Riff

lol thanks :)
12:51 am
Riff

I like this one much better than yesterday's
12:54 am
boatierra

Won't take sonora.
12:56 am
runningforhome

Couple of snakes in the puzzle.
12:57 am
Riff

I've already beat my score from yesterday, hah!
12:57 am
Riff

I've found one snake
12:58 am
boatierra

Won't take afro!!
12:59 am
mellowmasher

found a 9
12:59 am
boatierra

Riff, you must have found a different snake than mine, 'cause it woun't take mine.
1:00 am
boatierra

OK, I found one and its plural.
1:00 am
Riff

just got that too
1:05 am
boatierra

Without trying, I found a completely different spelling for a very common seed. Gonna give a clue one this one, its the same seed as a children's show. But a waaaaaaaay different spelling. Doesn't even start with the same letter. Good luck.
1:07 am
Riff

thanks mujer and dictionary.com!
1:07 am
boatierra

Arg!! Won't take banc!!
1:07 am
boatierra

My pleasure ;)
1:10 am
boatierra

Isn't that seed word out of nowhere?! Alas, I must retire for the evening. Time for shower, then bed. Sweet reveries.
1:13 am
Riff

me too, 76 words/4.63/854, I'm outtie
1:43 am
Pleonastic 1

Woohoo.. my first 9!
1:48 am
mellowmasher

126/1869 there must be lots here
2:24 am
mellowmasher

136/1977 back later to see how many I have missed
3:58 am
Riff

it won't take sorbonne? >:P
4:02 am
Riff

finally got the other snakes
6:31 am
Atalante

What was the 6 letter tree from yesterday? Looked in some word lists and still couldn't see it LOL
6:41 am
jlm_mi

pinier
7:07 am
Atalante

oh that was a tree was it LOL I had it all the time and didn't realise
7:07 am
banny

hooya, my first 9 too =)
7:25 am
Atalante

Is the 9 a compound word???
7:32 am
jlm_mi

Can you believe the number of B words???? I just spent about 5 minutes on the B and found 36 words that start with it. I'm sure that's not all of them, but I was seeing them faster than I could type them in!

Atalante - I assumed it meant "more like a pine" but didn't actually look it up to find out. :)
7:33 am
Atalante

gah! I've only got 35 LOL
7:56 am
banny

yes atlante, a compoundword, the one I found anyway
7:58 am
banny

I seem to suck at A words, all the time =(
7:59 am
Cissi

My 9 is a verb
8:06 am
banny

Its a compound and a verb at the same time
8:12 am
Cissi

Oh I see what you mean, it's a verb derived from a compound! LOL - I thought you meant a compound word as in one composed of 2 words, like voiceless the other day, which it isn't.

Atalante, have we confused you yet? LOL!
8:17 am
jlm_mi

But it's not derived from a compound. Rather, from an element.
8:21 am
Cruella

What does the element/compound start with??
8:21 am
Atalante

*utterly confused* LOL
8:22 am
Cissi

LOL, the first part of the word is indeed an element, but the action of the verb is to add a compound to something - there is another element involved! Never thought my biochemistry degree would come in handy here, LOL.

This is of course assuming that we've all got the same one!
8:22 am
Atalante

oh ick ... *bangs head* .... that was so obvious
8:22 am
Cissi

LOL Atalante, not helping much, are we :o)
8:23 am
jlm_mi

Out of 139 words for 1831 points I have:

24x6
6x7
0x8
1x9

I know that there is an 8 out there, but I think I'm missing some other big words based on earlier posted scores. I have more words but fewer points. Anyone have more high-letter words than those?
8:25 am
Cruella

starting letter for the 9 verb??
8:32 am
Atalante

7x7
8:35 am
Atalante

oops I mean 8x7
9:05 am
Cissi

It won't take utero :o( Well I don't care, my baby is still "in utero", but not for much longer!
9:11 am
Atalante

hmmmm actually there are 3 elements ... anyone got any more?
9:12 am
Krista

Cissi - I was just about to make the same comment - there a quite a few Latin words it won't take, tho..another one here is 'bono'
9:14 am
Krista

Is taebo a proper noun? This dictionary drives me batty - so arbitrary.
9:14 am
jlm_mi

Nope, 3 here also. And funny - two of the elements can be made into longer words by adding the same 3 letters on the end. One is the 9 and another is a 7. Cool!
9:15 am
jlm_mi

Tae Bo is a proper noun, registered trademark I'm sure, and two words.
9:22 am
Minski

Since when is FRANCE not a valid word?
9:23 am
jlm_mi

Since it is a proper noun. ;)
9:28 am
Minski

ah ha!
thanks.
9:39 am
mellowmasher

I have 10 7's if that is any help
9:41 am
jlm_mi

Thanks a lot mellowmasher! Now we all just have that much more work to do. ;) (No, it really is a help - thanks!)

Wanna share starting letters? I have

9xA
39xB
23xC
3xE
8xF
8xN
4xO
17xP
16xR
16xS
3xT
9:49 am
mellowmasher

sorry only meant to help I see you have more of some and I have more of some letters so will keep looking
9:50 am
jlm_mi

I was kidding - it's always best to have the most up to date info. Gives a good challenge to the puzzle. :)
9:51 am
mellowmasher

hey no offence taken love to see what others have even helps thanks
9:53 am
fnurt

I love the starting letter clues but I hate comparing because it seems I am behind on every single letter! Today tho I have 10xF and 19xP, so it's not all bad. 3 of my P's are 7 letters too.
10:05 am
runningforhome

Just found the nine; no eight yet though, and only a few sevens.
10:09 am
jlm_mi

Does anyone have any words beginning with U or I?
10:11 am
Swtbtrcup

dont leave us hanging give us a hint on the elements please
10:13 am
jlm_mi

You mean finding the elements up front? All three are pretty common words. There is one of each for 4, 5 and 6 letters. The 5 & 6 can also be pluralized in this puzzle to give a 6 & 7.

You can find a periodic table of the elements online by doing a yahoo search. It may help. ;)
10:14 am
jlm_mi

I guess one of the elements would be less widely-known than the other two. But it is a main ingredient in a pretty commonly used generic multi-purpose cleaner.
10:19 am
stevedallas

128-1730 not bad
10:25 am
BIA

All 3 of the elements can be made plural.
10:31 am
shansun

How could France not be a word???????
10:33 am
parker313

It's a proper noun ;)
10:34 am
shansun

Go figure ;) lol

10:53 am
Krista

do u have the 4-letter "love" word for 'e'??
10:58 am
mellowmasher

hope it helps I have 6 t's 20 p's 12 f's and 40 b's
11:03 am
Atalante

4 x E
11:17 am
Minski

I have the 4 letter love word for e. That's just how my mind works I guess. I was one of the first words I found.
hee hee. *blush*
11:24 am
Krista

thought maybe that was the 3rd one fnurt couldn't find..now there are 4? guess I'd better get looking?
11:33 am
parker313

Yay, I got the 9, I feel all bubbly!!! :-P
11:34 am
boatierra

OK, I've tried to break down what I have into generalized groups (the #'s do not reflect any variations of the words):

alphabet: 1
animals: 2 (other than snakes)
clothing: 1
drink: 1
elements: 3
food: 6
money: 1
musical instuments: 1
snakes: 1 (would not accept sonora)

Anyone have anymore?
11:35 am
fnurt

now I have 5 e's. HEHE
11:37 am
Tolinya

morning all at that place we call work..will try my hand for 5 minutes then i must spreadsheet....
11:38 am
fnurt

I have 2 musical instruments. One is easy, one is quite obscure.
11:39 am
boatierra

I've got the obscure instument (by dumb luck). What muscial instument group is the other one in?
11:41 am
Swtbtrcup

I found the nauseous word but am totally stumped on the elements
11:43 am
boatierra

All three elements are pretty early in the periodic chart. Obviously there are no elements with the suffix -ium in this puzzle.
11:50 am
Tolinya

woot found the 3 elements..apparently the brain is on today
11:52 am
boatierra

High front on the motor skills, eh?
11:53 am
granadan

I KEEP TYPING IN WORDS AND IT WONT PUT THEM UP - EVEN WORDS THAT ARE OBVIOUSLY OKAY. i WONDERED WHY SO MANY WORDS ON OTHER LISTS I COULDVE SWORN I HADNT MISSED OUT. BLASTED PUZZLE ISNT PUTTING THEM IN. IVE PUT IN ONE WORD EIGHT TIMES - IT WONT SHOW UP!!!!
11:54 am
boatierra

Talk to the Enable dictionary. In my opinion, they are waaaay lacking in vocabulary.
11:54 am
Tolinya

we have a high on the motor skills front however a low on the verbal skills front cuz it just took me a minute to type this...the brain is going faster than the handss.......aahahahah
11:54 am
Swtbtrcup

finally.... i feel elemental
11:55 am
onyx

hey granadan
i've had the same problem for the last two puzzles
11:58 am
Tolinya

kk joke from my cheese stick...

Why do cats bathe themselves immediatly after they eat?

will work for 5 minutes then post the punchline
11:59 am
boatierra

I cannot believe I just found a word for a sport that I used to participate in for fun. Kudos for me!!
12:02 pm
Atalante

Woot!!!! Got the 8 :)
12:06 pm
fnurt

I just found an 8 too. It's a science word.
12:07 pm
Atalante

and someone has just unwittingly given a clue to the 8 ;)
12:09 pm
jlm_mi

Granadan - What words are you not getting it to take? Remember that it will not take foreign words (usually, there have been exceptions), proper nouns, anything hyphenated or with an apostrophe.

mulhermujer - I have two snakes, plus one of them can be pluralized. I also have two articles of clothing, though one is not worn so much any more. I have at least 8 food items. Those are the ones that are actually food. There are some others that are food-related.
12:09 pm
Tolinya

Ok so punchline..

So predators do not come after them
12:09 pm
Tolinya

<me shaking head>

Back to my corner....
12:11 pm
jlm_mi

mellowmasher - you asked how we all were doing? 154/2122

more words, fewer points I've got to start searching for big words, and you for small ones. :D
12:13 pm
Tolinya

mulher is the other snake one we have here? i found the short word one
12:13 pm
boatierra

Got the snake that can be pluralized. The clothing I have is an unmentionable. I found another food after I made my list, an alternative to a food that many women are addicted to, including myself. <hint, hint, Tolinya ;)
12:14 pm
Christine

I have the three elements, but can't expand the two; have the two musical instruments, a tree, nine foods and two animals.... but snakes? they're hiding.
12:15 pm
jlm_mi

One snake must be pluralized in order to work with this game.

The other clothing article I have is more from the 1800s and would be visible to others when worn.
12:15 pm
boatierra

The snake I have can been seen at our zoo, probably. But its not native to the southwest. They come from the other side of the world.
12:16 pm
jlm_mi

Christine - Start by trying to expand on the longest element. It's the more common word of the two that can be expanded. Unless you're pregnant. ;) Then start with the shortest element.
12:16 pm
Tolinya

got the plural snake then just need the other one...got the article of clothing..food me? oh wait i just thought of it...
12:17 pm
Tolinya

got it..but they're BAD
12:18 pm
Tolinya

thank you very much jlm got the 9 for 76
12:18 pm
boatierra

Christine - your tree is the one Ithink I was talking about being an alternative food.
12:19 pm
Tolinya

hey i've got 11 b's not bad....
12:24 pm
claws

169 words 4.92 2447

Here is my alpha breakdown so far:

12xA
41xB
23xC
6xE
12xF
1xI (that's 'eye')
7xN
3xO
20xP
19xR
18xS
6xT

I think this is a bigger solution -there must be at least 200 words or more.
12:27 pm
boatierra

41 B's?!? Jeez, I thought I was doing well with 22. Gots a long way to go...
12:27 pm
jlm_mi

mulhermujer - I've recounted my words in your categories. Here's what I have:

money - 2 (one is obscure)
animal - 2 (one is obscure)
food - 10 (one is the seed mentioned much earlier)
drink - 1 (though there is another that is a drink item in another language)
alphabet - 1
clothing - 2
element - 3
instrument - 2 (one is obscure)
12:29 pm
jlm_mi

So, adding up what others have posted so far there are at least:

12xA
42xB
24xC
6xE
12xF
1xI (eye) - very impressed claws!
8xN
4xO
20xP
19xR
18xS
6xT

So at least 172 words.
12:31 pm
boatierra

I'm pretty close to that. I'm missing one clothing (the 1800's one), one money, 3 foods, and one instument. I'm a huntin'....
12:33 pm
boatierra

jlm_mi - both your animals non-ruminants?
12:35 pm
Swtbtrcup

there is a word that is the color of a horse
12:35 pm
stevedallas

150/2018 and thats enough for me
12:35 pm
Huh

121 words 5.08 1964

12:38 pm
boatierra

Have the color of a horse, and I just got the other waaaaay common instument. Double kudos for moi :)
12:39 pm
jlm_mi

mulhermujer - Honestly, not quite sure. I'm pretty sure that one is non-ruminant. The other is more obscure, but it could go either way since I'm not familiar with it. And I'm not including the color of the horse in my count, even though a horse of that coloring would go by that name typically.
12:40 pm
jlm_mi

The obscure animal is a type of small buffalo. Do they chew cud?
12:41 pm
boatierra

jlm_mi - both of mine are, so your two are probably the same. I looked them up. Still huntin' for that other darn snake!
12:42 pm
jlm_mi

In its non-plural form, how many letters does your snake have?

Oh, and my two other animals are 4 letters each, though the obscure one has a plural form also.
12:44 pm
boatierra

Buffalo are ruminant. They chew cud. The obscure one I have is not so much that the animal is obscure, but its a not so common name. Gotta go, the kid is up. laters!!
12:46 pm
nutkin

wow, it accepts the name of a popular gas medicine lol
12:48 pm
jlm_mi

Thanks nutkin! Didn't have that one yet. ;) But by definition it is a form of bingo as well as a medication.

mulhermujer - I must be missing an animal then. One of mine is definitely a buffalo.
12:57 pm
Huh

DOH!! Cant believe it took me till now to see the 9 :o :O

Yayyy 2080 :)

Onwards and sidways lol
1:05 pm
Christine

Oh, I really need someone to review my list... I find I have three snakes (okay, a couple are pluralized), three articles of clothing, two monies or money-related.
The elements all end with the same letter? so there are only two letters that could start the 'add-on'.
I dunno, if I called Marianne in UK, it'd be 7pm... and if I were a drinking woman
1:08 pm
granadan

JLM_MI

wOULDNT TAKE CARE OR CARER. nOW IM HAVING TO GO BACK OVER EVERYTHING TO SEE IF ITS ACCEPTED THEM OR JUST NOT BOTHERED. tHIS IS GOING TO TAKE EVEN LONGER IF I HAVE TO DO IT DAILY NOW!
1:08 pm
jlm_mi

Christine - I have two different kinds of snake, but 3 words out of them. One singular, one its plural, and the third is the plural of another snake.

The elements all end in the same letter, but you have to pick which location within the grid. They could be made ending at different locations. And the longest element word combines with the ending to give you the 9.

I only have two articles of clothing. Are all of yours commonly known, or are any obscure words? Also two money words here.
1:09 pm
jlm_mi

granadan - That's strange! So it's not that the words aren't in the dictionary, but just that you're not able to get the puzzle to accept them. Weird!
1:10 pm
nutkin

i have:

4s - 65
5s - 47
6s - 36
7s - 12
8s - 3
9s - 1

1:11 pm
nutkin

i might have lost count a little on the 4s and 5s

nutkin - I was having enough trouble finding 1 8. Now you say there are 3????? It's gonna be a long day . . . LOL

I have:

76x4
47x5
26x6
9x7
0x8
1x9

Looks like you have a few 4-letter words to go, but I'm missing the big ones big time.
1:16 pm
Christine

jim-mi - sometimes I think I have tunnel vision... I placed the words in one part of the grid, then my brain refused to see they could be placed elsewhere.... oh me, oh my..
granadam - keep trying, sometimes you ccan sneak a word in, after it has OOOPSed you.
1:21 pm
jlm_mi

So did you find it Christine?

Well, we've got lots of hints floating around for the 9. Anyone want to help with the 8s? Nothing too obvious, just a nudge in the right direction.

I've seen below that one is scientific. So far, not very helpful. ;)
1:22 pm
jlm_mi

Doh - I had the third article of clothing all along. Just skipped over it when I was categorizing. This is something I wear every day, but only at home.
1:23 pm
nutkin

clues for the 8s (had to use the dictionary because one doesn't mean what i thought it did):

repetition;
pilot;
bacteria


1:24 pm
jlm_mi

Thanks nutkin. That should be a good start. :)
1:26 pm
jlm_mi

I've been trying to do something like the pilot one all day and couldn't quite make it work. Finally got it!
1:27 pm
jlm_mi

And I really feel like a dolt for not getting it sooner. My job/degree is in that type of engineering. Doh!
1:29 pm

Thanks for the hints on the eights; I got two of them. Still looking for the bacteria one though.
2:21 pm
boatierra

Tolinya - A Dr. P bottle? There's your million dollar idea, Dr. Pepper flavored milk. Sure to be a hit with all the kids.
2:22 pm
Tolinya

oh ick....
2:22 pm
Tolinya

it was a choice between...the dr pepper bottle..an open 32 oz cup (no lid) ...or my tupperware container that I had cottage cheese in....
2:23 pm
Tolinya

ok those clues for the 8's...yeah not very helpful. i tried to think of different words for each of then when i walked over to get my salad at craberry...
2:26 pm
boatierra

Ta-da! I used the U! Not to start a word, but I used it Neener, neener ;)
2:29 pm
Cissi

The U is in one of the 8s :o)
2:30 pm
boatierra

jlm_mi - Then I must be missing an animal as well, 'cause I don't have a buffalo. I did just find an animal related word. Te-hee

1 product from an animal

2:39 pm
boatierra

The one that I handed you this morning?
2:40 pm
jlm_mi

Is the animal product a food? I've got two foods that come from animals.
2:41 pm
boatierra

Sorry for all the non-Babble talk...

He's fed till he refused any more, had 3 oz of milk, water, bathed, and a diaper change. I was planning to give him his antibiotic at 1pm. Can I give the Motrin at the same time?
2:42 pm
Tolinya

oh ok now see i'm missing 1..yes the 1 i've got is a measly 4 letter product

now must find the other one..is it a 4 letter?
2:44 pm
Tolinya

oh yeah...definatly the dosage says like every 4-6 hours...so i say he's screaming..go for it..

what about naners? did he have any of those? or his fish? (at least he'd be quiet for 10 minutes)

you want me to come home early? I CAN
2:44 pm
boatierra

So far, all my foods are non-animal. *still searching*
2:45 pm
runningforhome

One of the snakes is also an article of clothing/accessory (though not one you see very often).
2:45 pm
jlm_mi

Tolinya - My second animal product (a food also) is 5 letters, and can be pluralized for 6 letters. It starts with the same letter as my 4-letter animal product, but comes from a different farm animal.
2:45 pm
Tolinya

it's really simple..don't search too hard....think about buffalo
2:46 pm
Tolinya

yup got that snake need the other one
2:46 pm
boatierra

After you left I cut up the banana slices into quarters, and cut up a few blueberries, and gave him one fish. He sucked on them all at some point, but did not swallow anything. So I've been sticking to the fruit puree. Its the whole breathing thing. Back in a sec, gonna med the kid.
2:47 pm
jlm_mi

Good point, runningforhome. Hadn't noticed that link!

The other snake is relevant to health insurance for some in the US.
2:49 pm
Tolinya

2:53 pm
Tolinya

2:54 pm
Tolinya

i've got 18 b's lol...only 24 left ROFL
2:56 pm
jlm_mi

I have three words that could be related to fish. One is a place where fish would live (4 letters). The second is more fishing related. And the third is the same as the second with a prefix on it.
3:02 pm
jlm_mi

Cool - I just found a 6-letter narcotic!
3:02 pm
Tolinya

k got the longer fish word...and the related..need to find the living place
3:04 pm
boatierra

Tolinya - I gave him all three, he was very resistant to all of them.
poor little guy, he's just so miserable. He's in my arms right now. I'm typing with just my right hand. Hopefully he'll be more willing to try and fall asleep again. You don't need to come home, he's doing better. Thanks :)
3:08 pm
boatierra

I have the two fishing related. Looking for the living space.
3:09 pm
Tolinya

ok just yell and i'll log off and head home...

there's a brain tape in the vcr..it's the neighborhood one...i need to pick up some vicks for his nose...
3:10 pm
Tolinya

fish can really live in bonaters???

j/k of course
3:15 pm
boatierra

He's sound asleep. I'm gonna have some lunch. Still can't find the fish home: river, pond, stream, ocean, sea, pool, tank, aquarium, lake, brook, bowl, ....
3:17 pm
jlm_mi

mulhermujer - It's 4 letters, and it's a naturally occuring place within a large body of water.
3:21 pm
jlm_mi

Wow - Just found two more words that contain the U. Woo hoo!

And on a related note, just found two more words starting with B, so there are now at least 44. ;)
3:21 pm
berekah

thanks for all the clues...I think my score is double what it would have been otherwise :-)
Still working on the bacteria, as well as the buffalo one.
3:25 pm
jlm_mi

Spending too much time on internet bulletin boards can hurt this game. ;) I saw, much earlier, an abbreviation commonly used online but didn't put it in, because it's just an abbreviation. Nope! It's also a food. Duh!

There are at least 22 P words.
3:27 pm

3:30 pm
Tolinya

and i'm only 42/473..sigh if i could break the 50 barrier...haven't had the time or energy...still thinking about the fish thing...the one word that i came up with (while i was getting water) did not fit..rats
3:31 pm
Tolinya

oh you've got to be kidding me..i've never heard of this 5 letter i just made...nope nothing to do with fish or animal products..

Jlm is the other animal product that starts with a b a food for the animal or for humans? or would that be giving it away?
3:33 pm
jlm_mi

It's a food from an animal, consumed by humans.
3:45 pm
jlm_mi

Anyone able to help with another clue for the repetitive 8? I have two distinct areas that I'm thinking it might be in, but neither is panning out.

I'm thinking it either starts with re, or has a beginning that is a french word for again.
3:47 pm
fnurt

the repetitive word starts with an... I?!
3:50 pm
jlm_mi

No way! OK, back to the drawing board. At least looking in the re area gave me a couple more words. LOL!
3:51 pm
jlm_mi

Got it! I was trying to make words very similar to that, but putting re in front of that. Nothing worked.
3:58 pm
jlm_mi

Is the bacteria word a type of bacteria, or another word for bacteria in general?
4:18 pm
boatierra

Must...stop...claws!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just when I'm getting closer to 44, there you go and find ten more.
4:19 pm

the bacteria word is more like a way to describe it, or classify it. It's more a characteristic of bacteria.
4:21 pm
claws

oh, but the A's are killing me. I only have 13!
4:31 pm
Christine

I like tuna melt, but my friend had poached salmon, rice and salad.. well. how could I get her addicted??
Found I'm not good company, when I'm inwardly concentrating on Babbling... pilot and bacteria - I have the answer repetition - in fact, I have three words that fit.

A :)
9:24 pm

Two of the a-words are eight letters, if that's any help...
9:28 pm

Thanks for the hint but not a help to me. I am tired. Will try for a little while longer. Have found 5 A words so far but none have 8 letters.

Those of you who do so well, who get tons of words and long words could do a great service if tomorrow,you could print a list of the words you used and tell us where to find it. It would be sooo helpful
