Off to the grocery store....
Looks great indeed! Thanks Krys10.
T7/32 a well known babbler
There's an O7/28. I must go to bed!
I keep seeing tortoise ...
oh I wish you could spell hesitant with an ent <sigh>
Can anyone help me with the 2As I am missing, I have A4x4, A5x3, A6x1, A7x1.
You're missing an A6, and I'm still missing 1 myself.
I don't think the C/7/56 has been mentioned yet. I loved finding that one! (and no, that's not a clue)
The A7 that Treble99 mentioned is worth 32 points.
there are three A6 words
I loved to find the i6/33 (also not a clue) :)
Ooh - that one took some searching, but definitely a good one! :-D
Hi testing! :)
You are looking good today...
C8/65: a chemical word, a polymer found in the cellwand of some fungi.
Found a 2nd 7/R/32.
Make that 2 H7/60s
LOL - It sure helps to find these words if you do the math right! I mistakenly thought that 7-letter word points were multiplied by 3, so thoought they had to add up to 20 which seemed so impossible!
I have a A6/18 could I have a clue for the other 2As please
They're all worth 18 points and share the same second letter. :)
The two you are most likely missing vary only by their last letter. The first means "characterized by melody".
Thanks for the clues.
Sorry, I see (too late) that Krys10 mentioned that O7 already.
im trying to get my brain in gear...its just not coming easily today
A rundown of the big words mentioned so far (still missing 2 7s if anyone can fill in), then maybe on to comparing some letters:
8-65 C - a chemical word, a polymer found in the cellwand of some fungi. (also used in wastewater treatment)
8-60 H - robbing
8-45 R - activity of chickens
8-40 R - a plant having the most solid hold on the earth?
7-32 A - waking up
7-56 C - nightgown
7-60 H - The spore-bearing layer of the fruiting body of certain fungi, containing asci or basidia.
7-60 H - one who writes spiritual songs
7-28 O - to get one's bearings
7-32 R - bringing up
7-28 R - an Italian food
7-32 R - no def. but similar to the R/8/45
7-32 T - trying something out :-D
OK, I'm going to start with the M, N and O words I have so far if anyone can help.
ME4, ME5, ME6
OR5, OR6, OR7
T7/48 edible Eurasian freshwater fish (plural)
And S7/40: stupefied from or as if from drink. Should have found that one earlier. ;)
2x Me5, 5x Mi4
You've filled in all the blanks so far! Now I just have to find them.
You helped me as well, your listing filled in some of MY blanks!
I thought I had already entered that OT6!!!!
I just realised I missed the plural of the first Ra4. Why do I always forget to enter those plurals??
Same with that OT5 I was missing. I think the brain moves faster than the fingers, and by the time you are ready to put in the plural, you've seen another word. :-D
A question for those of you who routinely finish the puzzle:
how do you find the "words" that babble accepts that don't have definitions?
Typicall by trial and error and using the clues posted in the chat log. I find many, many words that I don't know what they mean, just because they seem like they could be words and I know I haven't found them all yet. :)
can anyone help me with missing Hs please, I have H4x6, H5x3, H7x2, H8x1.
You are missing an H5 and an H6, plus one that I am also missing.
My H5s are HEx2 and HYx2 and the H6 I have is HY.
H4, H5, H6
testing - I count you with 29 S words which means you are missing 4. Sa5 Se4 are two of them, the other 2 I am missing as well.
I actually had SE4x3, so a typo there. I'll look for the SA5 and that does still leave 2.
@ dicktrickle: mostly by trying all possible combinations that might be words, however farreached they seem. Or, shortly, by not being afraid to try stupid things. ;)
Se4 x4, Se5 x3
Ri4 x3, Ro6 x3
Finished. Also with 181/2393. :)
i have In4x2 In5x1, In6x1 any help with the other 2.
curious if any word uses the "Z"?
Treble99 - iT4, iT5
No, the z is not used at all.
Always frustrating, such a letter that isn't used. Good work, testing! Always nice, playing with you. :)
The C8 is hard to find. Is a polymer one of those things that always ends in -ose or -ase? I was no good at science.
No, that is not the ending of the C8.
You probably have the Ch4/9 that is the first part.
There are two CH4 / 9s though. You'll want the one that ends in the letter closer to the end of the alphabet.
noodle noodle noodle... thanks :)
on the C8: first part of the word sounds like a popular snack, the second part like a Japanese honorific
popular cheese flavored snack in the U.S., that is -- not sure about elsewhere
The C/8 reminded me of a lyric in a Weezer song called El Scorcho, where they mention the name of an opera singer. It sounds quite similar to the name.
Doubt that'll be helpful... all the clues seem totally obvious once you've found the word, but are fairly baffling before. ;)
it's also a nutritional/diet supplement
may I have clues for the g words please..
Nevermind, just found the g words. they have been in other puzzles.
x marks the spot
