Word Endings/BeginningsLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
For each of the pairs of words below, insert a word in the blank space between them to form two separate words such that the inserted word finishes the first word and begins the second. For example, given "MAN ____ ON", you would insert the word "GO" to form "MANGO" and "GOON". The hint gives the number of letters in each of the words that must be inserted.
WIN ____ HERE
DISC ____ AGE
TEN ____ OR
ANT ____ LOCK
SIN ____ SHIP
HintThe number of letters of each word that must be inserted are, respectively: 3, 2, 3, 3, 4.
AnswerNOW (winnow, nowhere)
US (discus, usage)
DON (tendon, donor)
HEM (anthem, hemlock)
KING (sinking, kingship)
