Lothar (of the hill people) is in this puzzle...hehehe
too bad it's not a word 'word'...
found a hip-hop artist for 16. also a g-7 & an L-7
The previous grid had AGAPE, AGAPAE.... what was the 7letter word???
I keep seeing 'allele'.....
Got the T for 7, a tornado target...
Got a 7 for 32,...a person who gathers
those e's and r's are very nicely placed for 'er' words.
Christine - I looked at Stevo's list for the last puzzle, and he had agapae, and agapeic. So there you go. Two new words for me.
"At 12:43 am daisy said...

No doubt :)
falling asleep (1:49 eastern here) - "good night & have fun" at 71/847.
I swear to goodness, there was ONLY ONE combo I didn't try.... iec..... aaargh.
I don't mind that I didn't get the points, it drives me dotty to not get a new word... and now we have two.
Yay, our team.
Ha-Ha! Took me a bit, but I got the hip-hop artist.
got an A for 7 but can't find the L-7
i-7 for 40
My browser won't let me get into the previous day's lists... so I can't learn the words I missed, unless I ask a favor.... thank you, all you favor-givers.
I think I must sign off, the swimmers are amazing..
got the L-7, now gotta find the I
Got the i-7 for 40, thanks for pointing it out. I just looked and there it was.
got an e-7 for 40, still looking for the i
8 for 40
I must depart. 77 for 903. Here's my breakdown for so far:
a x 2
e x 1
f x 6
g x 7
h x 18
i x 7
i x 10
n x 4
o x 1
r x 10
t x 8
(th x 4)
y x 3
Just got two more before leaving...Add a 6-18 at the top of the list, and a 7-28 right below the 7-40.
Okay, now I'm really done. Toodles!!
seems like there are so many 6's it's not worth listing them.
jlm_mi - glad you finally got benthic ;) I finally realise the advantages of being a marine biologist by trade ...... ;)
Atalante - are you and I alone, here?? but I must leave soon - early day tomorrow (well, today - it's already past 3am on the Left Coast) One more cup of tea.
95/1140; 17-6s and 5-7s.
How're you doing?.
Im here. 76 and slowing down. kids want to go out for lunch...
Granadan - are you in UK, or in Europe?
Early Sunday in Los Angeles, very quiet except for a herd of fire-engines going by on the freeway.... big fires just north of L.A.
Isn't that A7 the oddest word? and no definition in dictionary.com
Dont have the A7, but yes, Im in UK
In yesterday's puzzle I had the word ponce and tried every ending but ING. Oh well, live and learn new words.
Entrail should be a word!!
Two spellings of an oriental tobacco pipe ~ one is 7 for 32 and the other is 8 for 60
Would I like what goes in the pipe better? :)
Thanks for the clue,eyezz, and thanks to google. Got both words, neither of which I ever heard of :)
A7? R8? I've obviously missed excitement while having a sleep!!!
a/7 is wierd. R 8 I didn't get yet
whats the points total for the A7????
83 words, 1010 points. Still no R 8. But that a 7 is not in the dictionary as Christine said earlier. WAAAYYYY weird
oh gosh, it really is type in random letters till a word comes up then! No help from needing a 2 or 3 or 4 or anything LOL
Fit1 ~ You may not have heard the word for that pipe, but I bet you've seen them in pictures: http://deanoman.com/mideast02.JPG
The A7 is a five letter word with a suffix
here's the best hint I can think or. There are no more than 1 point letters in the word....7 of them :)
yeah eyezzz, when I googled, there it was :)
eyezz, is that you in the pic?
There should be approx. 157 words:
And a 9 for 90!!!! I found it by accident because I was looking up the definition of another word, and it was there in the dictionary. It builds off of the 6/36.
Now I've gotta find a 6 for 36 ...
ooooh I've never known it spelt like that!!!
Let's do the math, Jim_mi. I need it too. so, is it two fours and 4 1's? Sounds good :)
yup it is
And if you haven't yet found it, you can see where it is relative to some other 6s below. The 9 comes before both the 8s.
"At 01:38 am Q said...
seems like there are so many 6's it's not worth listing them."
Well, since a listing of 6's has been done in the past, I assumed it would be OK. Besides, it is not often that I get so many 'large' words so early in the game. I mostly find the 4's and 5's, and only find the longer words with the help of clues. So I felt kinda cool being able to list the ones I had found. If you don't care for the listing, don't look at it.
jlm_mi - Thanks for the clue for the 9. That's awesome you found that :)
Has anyone got more words per letter than I posted below, or more 6s or 7s, or just different 6s or 7s? I'm up against a wall and would love some guidance. :)
And, you're welcome, mulhermujer. I was very excited to see that!
I've found 5 works with Th
A x 8
E x 9
F x 8
G x 15
H x 19
I x 7
L x 20
N x 9
O x 2
R x 16
T x 14
Y x 3
oh and 7 of those T words start with TH
Thanks! That gives me a lot of work to do. I had just found a 5th TH after Kate's post. I thought even that was impossible. :-p
I've found some in addition to what I had earlier, and have more than you in a few categories:
can you tell me what the 9 starts with
got the 9 now
i'd rather like to know what the nine starts with ? I don't have a 6 for 36 yet
it starts with f
Thanks, I can work from one direction now !
It will not take nargil, which is an old type of pipe, is there another spelling ?
Too bad it won't take "anthole". Tried to trick it without spacing but it
Thanks, that is interesting, I have found 5 ways of spelling that word now, yet the puzzle only takes 2 even though all are legit ! Odd }(
What does the oriental tobacco pipe start with?
how many words in this puzzle? i counted 130...are there more?
At 11:35 jlm_mi said there's are at least 157 words.
Which R does the 8 letter word start with, please?
bottom row not in the corner
oops, next to the corner
Stuck at 64, can't find the 9 letter word or the 6 to build it on. Have not found the E-7 or R-8 or I-7 either :(.
Spoke too soon, just found the R-8 :).
What is the subject of the R-8 word?
periwinkle - For the 9 and 6 ltr combos, think of a informal word used to call a man, then build off of that. Hope that helps...
The R word start with a 5 letter word for 10 meaning to discover. Once you have this word make it past tense and add a prefix.
mujer, great hint, I just got both of them!
*tapping fingertips together*
Ive got an R for 8.Can anyone tell how many more 8`s there are please ?
There may be a few more or fewer than 157, but that's in the right ballpark. I have personally found 134 and know I'm missing at least one G and at least one L. But I'm sure there are many more.
I think just the pipe one for 8-60.
And good lord, I would have never found that R-8 word. I didn't know you could do that over again, in the past...;)
Karin - See my post at 11:35. The 3 8s include any 9 letter words, of which there is one in this puzzle. There are many hints throughout the chat log for that one.
Is there a definition for the 9 letter word or the 6 letter word that is used to build it?
the r 8 has to do with education
what ya do in school
For the 9 and 6 ltr's...
A peasant or agricultural laborer in an Arab country, such as Syria or Egypt.
"At 07:57 pm onyx said...

Ya, I got it. Thanks ;)
Onyx, I just read mujer's reply to you and got the words. Thanks, thanks, thanks. Now for the six and nine
mulhermujer, I have the base word for the 9 and I used Google but it is spelled differently here and I can't figure it out.
the definition for the 6& 9 did it thanks....
ah. thank you so much.
I got them!!! Can I play with the big boys now? whew
I'm not doing that great but I do have Hx21
one more than i've got. :)
have the margarine type O but not the other
one O also. Same as you
Just found the other one
can't find it. even tried to make oil "oeil." :D
finished with 83/1113
Hi, still struggling here and it's well past beddybyes time. Got base 6 f word but all combos for 9 are not right. Could I have the 7th letter please ? I won't be able to sleep if I cannot get this blasted word !
'tis the 5th letter of the alphabet
dimwit, if you are willing to go do a google for "Syrian agricultural laborer" you will get the answer.
Already been there, plural is 8 letters and doesn't fit (sigh) tried everywhich way but cant get it. Working on your letter, thanks 4t8
Well, I managed to find 100 words for 1348. I'll never make the Guiness book of records, but I got the ones we were discussing. it's beddy bye time. Niters all. :)
Yayay ! (silly dance) finally got the 9. Really living up to my id name tonight!
( well I have been ill the last two weeks :-(.......) thanks all, I have to give up now - shower and then dawn approacheth.. Night!
