kind of a nitpick, but if the word begins with those letter combinations, shouldn't the ellipses be on the other side?
Jun 5th, 2011 at 17:43 GMT
Yeah, the ellipses were a little confusing. Also, can I suggest "epicure" as an alternative to the sixteenth clue?
Jul 16th, 2012 at 22:22 GMT
For eternal, I put eternite.

In the UK, at least, 'earwig' can be used as a synonym for 'eavesdrop'.
Sep 15th, 2012 at 06:10 GMT
Did not know you could spell aerie another way.

Anyone else get "erase" for er before eradicate?
Mar 29th, 2013 at 17:12 GMT
How is ekistics guessed more than eon? The clue gives you 2/3 of the word for eon, and not many words start with eo. And I've never heard of ekistics before today. And obviously it's all about me.
Mar 29th, 2013 at 17:31 GMT
For "En" I guessed "engage". I still feel that response should kinda-sorta be accepted...

Evaporization is a method of Vaporization, and Boiling is the other way.

egads! excellent!! and exasperating too! :)
Mar 29th, 2013 at 18:04 GMT
I couldn't for the life of me get the notion out of my head that 'effigy' was spelled 'effagy'. Time to break out ye olde dictionary...
Mar 29th, 2013 at 18:10 GMT
I was stuck on the "EH" one, and paused the game. The advertisement on the pause screen was for eHarmony!
Mar 29th, 2013 at 18:52 GMT
Oh god you made a grammar mistake, and it's killing me. "To disconnect removable media, ie DVD" should be "To disconnect removable media, eg DVD". EG is latin for exempli gratia, which means "have an example," or "take for example." You use it when giving an example of something. IE is latin for id est, which means "it is" or "that is". You use it the same way you would use "in other words".
Mar 29th, 2013 at 21:32 GMT
Wow, for that EK one, it sure help to know what the suffix for "study of" might be...
Mar 29th, 2013 at 21:38 GMT
I for the life of me couldn't come up with endeavour. In trying, I realized that this quiz can/could probably be made for "en" as well. ena, enb, enc, etc etc.
Mar 29th, 2013 at 23:07 GMT
Is it just me, or are the "e"s in "ee" bigger than any of the others?
Mar 29th, 2013 at 23:56 GMT
I don't know how many times I tried Ezekiel, but I guess that's not the 15th book.
Mar 30th, 2013 at 02:36 GMT
The noun version of "endeavour" is much more common than the verb form. I think a lot more quiz-takers would get it if the clue were "An undertaking".
Mar 30th, 2013 at 02:42 GMT
The clues for this quiz were excellent. 5 Globes.
Mar 30th, 2013 at 03:06 GMT
10 seconds left: oh, it's endevor! endevore! endevour! Nope. Endeavor. Darn.
Mar 30th, 2013 at 03:44 GMT
Epicurist should also be an acceptable answer for the "ep" clue. It's another noun form of the same word.
Mar 30th, 2013 at 04:02 GMT
@ktappe, I won't speak for the author, but it might be possible that the endeavour question is worded that way to avoid "Enterprise" also being a viable answer.
Mar 30th, 2013 at 04:03 GMT
If only I could spell effigy.
Apr 1st, 2013 at 17:50 GMT
Isn't 'exemplum' a valid alternative for EX? Might be worth adding :-) Great quiz though, and I learned a new word (the EK one)!
Apr 2nd, 2013 at 02:32 GMT
Small quibble, but the meaning of 'eureka' isn't 'Used to portray excitement of discovery'. I spent a while thinking of an adjective. I would modify it to 'An exclamation used to portray excitement of discovery'.
Apr 2nd, 2013 at 03:10 GMT
I had no idea of ed, fortunately my first guess was edition :P A great quiz though!
Apr 13th, 2013 at 05:21 GMT
@ubbiebubbie- The 'ee' IS bigger. It has to be a symbol, rather than normal text because if it was normal text the quiz would read the line as being a bonus answer since 'ee' is the designation for a bonus line.
Apr 15th, 2013 at 20:51 GMT
^ Oh. Right. That makes sense! In retrospect, I'm not sure why I didn't think of that.
