Very cool! I had to pull up my dictionary to solve that one.
An innocuous and fun little puzzle!
(First time I've ever used THAT word in a sentence!)

I felt right about the right word but I was a bit fuzzy on the correct spellings of the other words .. I knew they didn't seem spelled right but .. maybe we'll get a spell checker in the comment box .. could cut and paste out of Word I guess (seems like cheating) .. One of my worst habits is prepair instead of prepare ..

LOL! I love this teaser! I fell for the double letter things as well. I have to admit, I like to be the spelling/grammar police and this just made me crack up laughing that I got it wrong. Thanks for the pick-me-up!

There is another possible answer. All of the words end in consonants except Inoculate, which ends in a vowel. Very simple answer, but still a possible answer.

Very Well Done

I just thought somebody didn't know how to spell......

I thought it was the answer because it was the only one without a E caus every other word has a E. So did anyone else but me love Orlando Bloom's acting skills cause orly is Orlando Bloom's nickname!!!

2 WORDS- EASY & BORING. BUT GOOD JOB I GUESS.

Picked out the word that didn't belong, but no clue as to why it didn't. Noticed a couple of misspellings, but didn't see the significance. Humbling for those of us who consider ourselves good spellers, and a reminder to really SEE what's out there.

That was a good one It took me awhile to figure it out, then I realized that the words were spelled wrong.

Jul 04, 2005

Haha! I got it right, but i didn't know how to spell any of those words, so i just picked the only one w/o an "e"

Jul 04, 2005

Me too. It was the only word without an e. lol Did not even think of spelling. but is a good one

Dude, that was a good one I was coparing and contrasting all along not even making myself aware to the fact that it was spelled wrong.

way over my head... I was reading this and saw a couple words spelled wrong, and was thinking "maybe I should submit a correction of those spellings" I even had the correction part filled out (in a separate Internet Explorer window) when I gave up on the teaser and looked at the answer... boy did I feel stupid!!

Very tricky!!! I'm a terrible speller, so I didn't even notice the errors. I thought it was sovreign because it was the only one without double letters. Great job, fish!!!
