Take Away 4
Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
What 5 letter English word does not change in pronunciation even when you take away 4 of its letters?

|what does Queue mean, anyway- if it is a word, as is mentioned in the riddle|

|Queue means a line. As in to stand in line is to queue up.|
Anyway, good teaser - I found it rather simple, though, once I realized that four letters from 5 leaves one, so I just needed to find a letter in the alphabet that sounds like a five-letter word.

|is "q" a word?jw|

|The question doesn't imply that "q" is a word. It simply asks which word doesn't change in pronunciation.|
It's the word "queue" that doesn't change in pronunciation. "q" itself isn't a word, and the question doesn't imply that it is.

Anyways, good teaser.

|Yay! I got that one quickly! |

|All I could think of was Tea (T) and Pea (P), but I knew that wasn't right... (Gee, wonder why?) |
Very clever! I might not be that good at these, but I thought it was pretty tricky!
