Alternate Dictionary Definitions IIILanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
This teaser is based on 'funny' alternative definitions a word could have if you broke the word up into its syllables and treated the syllables as words in themselves. I will provide a list of words and a list of definitions, it is your job to match them up.
They are meant to be a bit light hearted and may not have perfect
pronunciation so work the words in your head a bit. Having the definitions should provide help in this regard. Also note that sometimes the 'new
word' syllables may not only be using one syllable in the word.
An example would be:
Word: Contemplate "Con template": A stencil that criminals are made from.
Cake component made of Tolkien treefolk
Workers who put together kitchen
The term given to the profits made by a pub
Brought litigation against a government official
What you see from the top of the Eiffel Tower
AnswerParasites - Paris'sites: What you see from the top of the Eiffel Tower
Sudafed - sued-a-fed: Brought litigation against a government official
Enticing - Ent-icing: Cake component made of Tolkien treefolk
Bargain - Bar-gain: The term given to the profits made by a pub
Counterfeiters - counter-fitters: Workers who put together kitchen
