If "PIROUETTER" is in your verbal REPERTOIRE then you are the PROPRIETOR of a busy TYPEWRITER!

i have to doubt the verasity of some of these words as several of them are not in the O.E.D

I didn't stand a chance and I don't think I'm alone. I hope somebody got it. I did get Typewriter before the hint tho lol.

Well, making your day complete, lmurray, is, afterall, the MOST important thing!

Now, onto the teaser... I also got "typewriter" without the hint, yayayay!!! I didn't get any others. I happen to be a "pirouetter" myself, but I've always considered those French words, although I suppose they're technically English now that they are used by English-speakers for Ballet. I never would have gotten the others either, without looking them up, well... maybe a couple of them. But, that's OK, just means it wasn't easy! Everyone complains when teasers are EASY, but when its very hard, somehow that's not "right". LOL! Thanks for the brain workout, it will be sore tomorrow.

Having never heard of most of those words, I sure didn't get this teaser. Boy do I feel dumb.

Yikes, even if I did get this there's only four of those words that I even know. Interesting, but too hard.

I have to admit that I felt quite a few of the words in the answer were a bit cheap. There are probably lots of words that you could come up with by simply adding "er" to the end of the word as the author has here.

what the heck is tetterwort, pepperwort & pewterwort?

That was mind boggling. I'm usually good at word games, but for the love of me I couldn't think of ten. Thanks for the post. I enjoyed it.

Good One.
Very difficult. All I got was typewriter and a bunch of 8 & 9
letter words. You beat me
I am wide awake by the way so
no excuses.

Only got the hinted word.Tough one.

Actually, the top row of a typewriter keyboard is made up of numbers.

Jul 17, 2007

Kwelchans, thanks. You're right and I side with Imurray and Doehead.

PEPPERWORT, PEWTERWORT, PIROUETTER & TETTERWORT?

I have no idea what those are (I assume herbs and ballet) but I am certain that I did not stand a chance on this teaser! Very tough!

Great teaser! I really, really liked this one, I just wish I'd allowed my brain to wake up before trying it...

First day on this site. I found a couple of admittedly questionable words that were not on the list. Is it bad form to post them? Anyway, I don't think they're any worse than "pretorture." What is that, Lindy England's version of foreplay?
highway101*us
Jul 18, 2007

Excuse me. The top row of my typewriter keyboard is all numbers and symbols. Doesn't make sense to me.
