there's an 8/60 relevant to the situation in Iraq.
7 for 56
a 8 for 40
ooh! ooh! thanks for the X comment just as I was about to sign off . . . now with two more sevens at 68 & 64 I can go happily with 65/1003 . . . there's something about hitting 1000! ;-)
Must be another huge grid.
:-)) I know the feeling!
70 for 60 ('nother x). am going to sleep now before it's time to wake up. 82/1174; 'night.
ergh! :D 7 for 60
2x A8/40, alt. spelling
H8/70! Great word!
265 / 4181
Breaktime. This grid must be at least as big as yesterday's.
So that is 287 total?
I'm getting close, then. Thanks for the stats!
any clues for the big words would be helpful.Thanks
Sorry, yep, 287 total.
done, 287 words / 5.01 / 4419 points
The prettiest from this grid for me: the H8/70. Meaning "history considered from a feminist viewpoint or emphasizing the actions of women".
I still think that H/70 is the wierdest word ...
Actually, we were taught that word in class, when I was a school girl, in english lit. *lol* First time it came in handy...
How funny...I've heard it, but always as more of a joke than actually seeing it anywhere. Can't imagine actually using it....
We thought it very unfair to men that there wasn't a male counterpart. ;-)
Isn't history as it is the male counter part? ;)
That was what our teacher said!
I think arthrodry should be a word. Sounds funky.
So for people looking for word clues, here are my long ones so far. I believe many are the same as sprite's, but a few seem different:
A/8/40 one who affirms
C/7/52 negatively charged electrode
C/8/70 plural neg. electrodes
E/7/68 jazzed about something
E/7/64 verb form of the above
H/8/70 feminist term for stuff that happened
S/7/36 the study of stationary bodies
T/7/28 said in the shortest way
T/7/40 things that connect things or hold them down
T/7/44 got together secretly
Oh, and M/7/56: enigmatic people.
I suck at checking plurals.
OK, I have some others. There are 2x8/A/40 with the same meaning. Then:
8/60/H (comes after the H/70): prisoners of a sort
7/44/H - singular of H above
7/60/R - took someone's money again (government)
7/28/S - organizers
Thanks, parsec and testing. The clues were great!!
Any clues for the 9 please
any clues on the M words?
think of frankincense (this was in a puzzle a few days ago)
a type of cheese (rarely heard as far as I know)
6/7 combo - enigmatic person/people
M's: one is mentioned at 11:47
One is its singular (6)
One is something Christmasy (5)
The last one has no definition (6 letters)
I'm so ALMOST helpful :-)
A/9/72, an articulation or joint between bones.
sorry, i meant articulationS.
i cant believe i didnt see those! DOH! i actually had the cheese, just had no idea what it meant...hehe...
I didn't see any clues for the last 8: S/8/50. Can anyone give a clue for that one?
Thanks for the clue for the 9, btw.
its the plural of S7/36
Thanks. I had one, but not the other, S7/36, and finally tried similar words and got the 7 and the 8!! :-)
heh, no wonder...I'm missing both =)
im still not figuring out the 9, but there are still a bunch of 7s im not getting...(got all the 8s, yay!)
OOOOOOOh I love that H8. Thanks for the great clues :)
Found the big S words!
A clue for the other S/36 (not the stationary bodies one) is that it's a flower, usually used dried. The 8 is the plural of the 7. (The bodies S/36 is a plural of a 6.)
Oooh - I had tried the first 6 letters of the 9 earlier, but alas it wasn't a word by itself. Thanks for the clue - I probably wouldn't have tried that on my own.
Man. I've got 6 of the O words. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?
There is an Os5.
For anyone wondering, as I was, if there could possibly be a T/7/40 that comes after that T/7/44, indeed there is. It's a very simliar word to the 44. Or maybe I'm the only one who didn't think to try that! ;)
thanks, fnurt. Not sure how I missed that one when I was trying os words!
Benjake, you're missing an os 5
A clue for the D/7/36 is "lies".
I don't have a meaning for the E/7/36, but it might be a plural formed the same way the A/9/72 is.
Sorry - that's actually for the E/7/40, not the 36.
is there an E7/36
The entire list of 7s was given at 4:13 am by sprite.
anyone have another clue for either the A/8/40 (one who affirms) or the S/7/36 (dried flowers)?
For the S7 flowers, take the word for what happens when clothes come out of the dryer in winter, and add an e.
aaha! thanks benjake!
anything on the affirmant? A/8/40
That one's harder to come up with...anyone else feeling creative? :-)
I'm still missing the S7/36,A7/36, and two of the E's(36 and 40). Any clues there?
