Letter Head Aches

Post  ItsAGuess on Mon Jul 16, 2007 3:05 pm

First topic message reminder :

Can you solve this one?

Complete these words by inserting the same three letters in each (* represents a missing letter):
    S***GH
    F***RISH
    C***DY

Good Luck!

If anyone solves it, I'll post another puzzle.
Regards,
Itsa

EDIT 2009-08-16: Please go the last page of this thread for the current puzzle.

Well done Bren! was a toughie! Here's the next one...

The following 6 letter words have something in common:
Voodoo, Banana, Revive, Assess, Uneven.

There are many more 6 letter words that have the same connection. Can you name at least two more?

Good luck all.

If you move the first letter of each word to the end, it spells the word in reverse. Other examples - revive, uneven, grammar

You got the connection...but 'revive' and 'uneven' appear in the original list and 'grammar' is a seven-letter word. There are many more six-letter words out there that fit the same pattern, can you find at least two more?...how about five more?

Happy hunting all.

Ooops.....

'Potato' is good but 'Dresser' doesn't fit the pattern as it is a seven letter word.

There are many 6 letter words out there that do fit the same pattern. Can you think of at least two more which we haven't had yet (i.e. not including: Potato, Voodoo, Banana, Assess, Revive, Uneven)?

Hi Bren,
Good try but you've used some letters more than once and managed to find more than two birds that way.

Hi Chrissie,
Good try, but you didn't use each letter, only some of them.

Here's a reminder of the instructions:
Using each letter once and once only find two birds
Good luck all!

Well done Bren you got the two I was thinking of, I don't think there are any others.

Ok here's the next one:

Can you think of a common 12 letter English word that has only 2 vowels?
If you can find a longer word with only 2 vowels even better.
