Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

 

Puzzle ID:#17335
Fun:*** (3)
Difficulty:*** (3.01)

We've all seen a rebus like "midstuckdle" (stuck in the middle). The following clues are "revrebuseserse" (rebuses in reverse). That is, the clues below are answers to rebuses which all use the "in" construction.

However, the original rebus from the clues below will actually form a word. For example, "Not old in actually existing" would be "renewal" (new in real). Can you solve the rest?

1. A short poem in scarlet
2. A room-dividing structure in a female pig.
3. A joining word in a close friend
4. A head of corn in grasping tightly
5. Nothing in what your eyes do
6. A wild beast's shelter in stinking decay

Clever!

I don't care for the clue for verse, personally. I'd say "part of a song" would sound more accurate, but maybe thats just me.

Good teaser. I didn't understand it until I actually read the correct answers, so I can't say I got them right, but I can can I do understand the puzzle now. Thanks for the workout, and thanks for posting.

Clever! Of course, I didn't get the answers until I looked at the correct ones, and had to re-read the instructions a couple times, but this was very original and fun! Please make more, I'll try and do better next time!

Found all of them, but it took me about 40 minutes of playing with it. #4 had me stumped for a crazy long time. Awesome teaser!

Great, original teaser. Got 4 of them (reversed, swallow, senile, rodent) For the record, the definition of cling is not "grasping tightly", its "come or be in close contact with; stick or hold together and resist separation". Maybe you were confused with clench or clutch.

Well done, Snaps! This has to be one of the most clever Teasers I've ever seen. Fantastic!

Rebuses (or is it rebi ?) are not really my thing. When I saw the answers, I thought oh, that makes sense! But I was WAY OFF in my responses.
Maybe next time!
