pronounce is messed up. typed in profession and it came up. need more time
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 05:37 GMT
Klingsta: I think it took "profess" for "pronounce", as they are synonyms and both start with pro. Some things which should be accepted: progress for proceed, and one doesn't need proof to put someone in jail, one needs "probable cause". (Proof is necessary for a conviction, which then leads to prison time, not jail; jailing usually comes before the trial.)

i also feel like "propel" would work for proceed. i know it isnt a perfect 100% synonym but it is pretty close
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 05:44 GMT
Thanks for the feedback, tweaked the quiz a bit to handle these. Cheers!
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 06:03 GMT
Isn't it strange that one of the defining words of "proclivity" is "propensity," and yet propensity is not a word on the list? Also, I feel like this list could be 5x longer, there are so many "pro" words (prosthetic, procreate, pronto, prophecy, etc.)
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 06:27 GMT
dont you need a prosecutor to put some one in jail? and proliferate is also something that would contribute to growth, etc
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 06:57 GMT
To make a declaration: proclaim? To move, pass, or go forward or onward: progress?
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 06:59 GMT
To further tweak the "probable cause" issue - that's what you really need for an arrest warrant rather than jailing.
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 09:58 GMT
i like what your going for here, but yeah, you run into a few that work with more than one, as previously noted, which you took care of for profound and prodigy. i figure just manage the rest the same way.
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 10:30 GMT
I only knew one! Good quiz though!
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 10:50 GMT
It accepted 'proclaim' for 'pronounce'.
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 14:50 GMT
I didn't like the use of all the 'pro' words in the clues themselves: prosperity, proportionally, profess, propensity. Those terms got stuck in my head ...
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 19:26 GMT
No pro bono? I mean, I know in a technical sense it's 2 words, but come on... that's based directly off the Latin.
Comment below threshold:
Nov 23rd, 2008 at 20:13 GMT
There were a ton of "pro" words missing from this quiz such as process, protractor, progress, program, provision, and prosper.
Nov 28th, 2008 at 20:52 GMT
The "Prosecution" is also responsible for making people go to jail.
Dec 11th, 2008 at 20:54 GMT
I also put down prosecution, then prosecute then I had no idea. Although pete's right, probable cause is for search warrants. Big difference between that and conviction.
Dec 31st, 2008 at 21:32 GMT
An extra minute or two would be nice.
Jan 5th, 2009 at 06:03 GMT
Couldn't "progress" be the answer for "to move, pass, or go forward or onward" besides "proceed"?
Jan 9th, 2009 at 22:47 GMT
i put in profound and got prodigy?????
Feb 6th, 2009 at 12:21 GMT
I would think this would be in the Language category rather than Entertainment, no?
Feb 21st, 2009 at 00:50 GMT
Why does To move, pass, or go forward or onward not take "progress"?
Mar 1st, 2009 at 15:49 GMT
Pretty hard, but fun!
Mar 12th, 2009 at 18:25 GMT
I though prodigy was someONE rather than someTHING, but I guess I could be wrong. Agree with Qrystal that this should be in the language category.
Mar 24th, 2009 at 05:25 GMT
You don't need probable cause to put someone in jail; you need it to arrest them in the first place. and like everyone else said, several answers can work for a lot of these. and i thought the clue for prodigy could have been a little better. decent quiz though.
Jun 28th, 2009 at 14:19 GMT
they forgot problem
Aug 5th, 2009 at 17:21 GMT
It should accept "progress" for "proceed".
Nov 27th, 2009 at 16:41 GMT
@Qrystal: "I would think this would be in the Language category rather than Entertainment, no?" It probably could not pass a peer review for a Language quiz in its current slipshod, sloppy and slapdash form.
Jan 11th, 2010 at 14:24 GMT
Too many options for many of these.
Jan 14th, 2010 at 01:52 GMT
I think "pro-rata" should be accepted for "prorate".
Jan 14th, 2010 at 01:54 GMT
...and possibly "propose" for "pronounce" - I think the definition fits well enough.
Jan 28th, 2010 at 20:18 GMT
"to scrutinize or examine thoroughly" they should have accepted PROOF as an answer for this. don't these quiz creators proof their creations? and ya progress should have been accepted for "to move, pass or go forward
Aug 11th, 2011 at 13:39 GMT
"To put off till tomorrow, to postpone, to delay; to be dilatory" I was going to type in this answer but I waited too long and time ran out...
Aug 11th, 2011 at 16:40 GMT
Probable Cause is two words and should not be on a quiz that specifically asks for a word. Prosecution would be a better response.
Aug 11th, 2011 at 18:00 GMT
Couldn't "progress" be another answer for "proceed"?
Aug 11th, 2011 at 19:45 GMT
I actually put proof for the probable cause one and it worked!
Aug 11th, 2011 at 19:46 GMT
Couldn't "propose" also be accepted for "pronounce"?
Aug 11th, 2011 at 23:16 GMT
As several commenters above have mentioned, but none strongly enough, "probable cause" is absolutely wrong as an answer for what is needed to put someone in jail. Probable cause is the standard for arrest or for getting a search warrant. The standard for conviction, which is what sends someone to jail, is beyond a reasonable doubt which is a considerably higher standard than probable cause.
