    I know you said letters can be used twice, but "ally" - you did not make clear that one letter can be used twice consecutively without another letter in between (such as ...alay). This should be made clear in the instructions.

    Not sure why 'bap' isn't allowed - it may be predominantly used in the UK, but its in Websters.

    Did I hear something about that picture being of an excavator and not a crane!?

    Anyway, I fixed it, but if we've learned one thing today, it's that there isn't a bird called an excavator and there sure as hell should be.

    Great quiz, but there's a certain sinking feeling when you have one word left and it's clear that Lewis Carroll might have made it up.

    I agree with @TheHYPO, and apparently so do 80%+ of the quiz takers. The only two words that even use the 'used twice' rule are 'away' and 'ally', and they're both around 15%. I understood that 'away' would be acceptable, but never would have tried 'ally'. The rule says 'letters must be adjacent'. 'L' is not adjacent to itself, it IS itself. No big deal, but should still probably be mentioned as most people are missing it.

    Please can we put a stop to this practice, which appears to be common to all "List the words that ____________" quizzes, of assuming that British English is somehow inferior to US English? While I realise that the US has the highest number of Sporcle users, it should be a global site (it does have a globe in the logo!) and should therefore accept as a full answer - not a bonus - any word which is in common usage in at least one major English-speaking country, be that the US, UK, Australia, South Africa or wherever else. A Scrabble player from the US who enters international tournaments has to learn all the British words, just as a British player has to learn all the American words.

    Would you say wrap rhymes with rap? They are pronounced the same. And I too guessed frappe.
  9. Rhymes with 'Rap'

    The source you give has "bap" listed as a word, and I fail to see why it should be relegated to a bonus answer simply because it is followed by the word "British" in italics. I appreciate this is the standard for these quizzes, but frankly I think the standard is totally wrong. Unfortunately, the fact that a word isn't used very much in one country does not actually stop it from being a word, and the American dictionary used here as the source certainly seems to consider it one - so I'll add my voice to the numerous and no doubt ignored objections already raised.

    Sorry to nitpick but are some of these words? Slowworm? (Glowworm would have made more sense; slow worm is two words and not a very common phrase.) Sayyid? (A proper name or sultanate dynasty?) Eggcup? (Definitely two words.)
