There is an alternate answer to the puzzle: Often is the odd man out as it is the only word which has 2 different vowels, while all other words have 3 different vowels.

But the number-ending foxed me completely....great one!!!!

Nice, I thought Canine because it was the only word that was an animal....but I knew it couldnt of been that easy!

A little confusing even after seeing the answer since abalone is not pronounced as abal-1. But, if you go strictly by spelling, I see the point. Interesting teaser.

Nice teaser. I was a little too literal on this one. I was going to eliminate Abalone for two reasons:

1) It was the only noun; the others were all adjectives.

2) The other four words started with "round letters" (C & O), while Abalone started with a pointy letter.


Ah well...next time...

Hmmm...in retrospect, canine COULD be a noun also, but I still felt safe with abalone, since it couldn't be used as an adjective at all, whereas Canine could...

Okay, too early for this...I need coffee...

I got the right answer, but for a different reason: Careful is the only word containing an "F". Good tease, Javian.

OUCH! Oh no it isn't! I oFten miss the F in often...don't mind me. Haven't had my morning coffee yet. Good tease, bad comment.

The nice thing about working Braingle word teasers is that thinking outside the box soon becomes the norm, which makes solving them fairly easy. Would the obvious elude us?

that was a good one. of course i didn't get it until i looked at the answer. i guess i need to look outside the box next time

Often is an adverb, dearies. I must say I was looking for differences in parts of speech...and I was wrong = ). Maybe I can blame it on the chicken....*gobble gobble*

Believe it or not, I actually got this one! As soon as I realized ca-nine had a number, I looked for numbers in the other ones. Yea for me (for once)! Great job!!!!!

Cute job! A hint would be cool tho...!

Good teaser, tho I thought the answer was Abalone, as the other words spelled C O C O if read in a line down. Shrug.
I'm going to go back to my morning coffee now.

Very good teaser! I really liked it! Very well thought yp! Keep em comin!

Didn't get it, but now that I see the answer I could kick myself! I thought it was "overweight" b/c overweight is the only word that has two vowels next to each other, and is the only compound word. GREAT TEASER!!!

Good job! Ididn't get it though!!

Aug 24, 2005

it was kind of easy at fist i thought Abalone then i realised it was Careful because i saw the one and nine in abalone and Canine and checking to make sure payed off

Tactfully done, however there were a few alternate answers. Some of these answers were stated in the other comments, but I chose abalone because it does not have two words within it while all the others do.

good

Aug 24, 2005

Like others, I chose abalone because it is a noun and the others are adjectives and an adverb. I felt proud of myself only because I knew how to peek at the answer!

Nine and ten suddenly jumped out and I got it. Good teaser.

no need to disagree just its history!!!

Aug 25, 2005

Thanks for the great comments! I did the whole "C-O"/round letters to kind of throw people off, because I thought most people would automatically say 'abalone' but it seems there are a ton of alternate answers...A ton of people also suggested adding a hint, but I wouldn't know what to add. Anyway, glad you all liked it.
