Ahh its too early for this. Nice though...

As for the extra syllable, I found three that weren't needed:

There was an extra "el", an "o" and an "e." I know because I wrote them all down while doing this teaser and checked them off when I used them. BTW, I got them all right! Wooo hoooo!! Yay for me! Excellent teaser. Kinda easy, but that's my favorite kind!

CD Rocks....again!!! Great job!
btw, Smee, there were no "extras". All of the syllables were used. Recheck your list and also look at the answer...it should make sense then.
KatelinAus*
Jan 02, 2006

I didn't even use the sylalist for numbers 4-10, but I had to on numbers 1 and 2; and I somehow managed to completely skip over number 3 Don't really know how that happened, but oh well. I thought it was great and fun, keep it up!

Sorry, Beaver, but I am a Gemini, and the ingredients for my sign weren't in the sylalist. (Great term, btw!) I LOVE messing with words, so this one goes on my fav list!

I've just started these but it was fun. I didn't have any extras. I could not find a definition for the word 'sylalist'. Can anyone find out what it actually means?

Hey, I did your sylalist2 that was teaser of the day on Oct. 13, '06. It was very fun, so I figured I'd search for your first sylalist! This one was fun as well, but a bit more challenging. As to booboobear...a sylalist is just a "LIST of SYLLAbles"....

Well done. A good little mental exercising, necessary after the holidays.

Another word teaser that I loved! Nicely challenging for this early hour.
katjojoAus*
Jan 02, 2007

Fun and Kool!! I enjoyed this one.
craniacAus*
Jan 02, 2007

This was fun and easy, but you had to be willing to take the time to list all the syllables on paper and tick them off as you used them. I got a few just in my head, then quit, because I'd already done the crossword puzzle and word jumble in the newspaper and was on my second cup of coffee. Anyway, enjoyed it.

TIME HEALS ALL WOUNDS.

LAST YEAR, I RATED THIS THISER BORING, BORING, BORING.

HAVING THE EXPERIENCE OF DOING SEVERAL OF THESE DURING THE LAST YEAR, I HAVE A DIFFERENT OPINION.

THIS IS OK. VERY EASY, BUT ENJOYABLE.
Pizzazz2uAus*
Jan 02, 2007

Even being slightly easy, this one is still fun to do. A terrific little *energy starter* puzzle Keep up the awesome work!
FatHeadAus*
Jan 02, 2007

For those that came after me, use a checklist.

I though elephant was parsed, el-eph-ant? because the only time a syllable ends in a vowel is if that vowel is long. I'll have to check that.

Good work!
coachpisco*
Jan 02, 2007

That sure must have taken a lot of time...
cloughmeAws*
Jan 02, 2007

excellent job!!

I enjoyed this very much!

OMG! IMURRAY is capable of reflection and change!! What a fine way for him to start the new year! Hope you can sustain that positive outlook!! (Yes, I switched pronouns--don't correct my grammar!!!)

As for the teaser's author, I LOVED this sylalist!! As you can see by my ID, this was right up my alley! It took a few minutes, and I got them all--perfect!

I was just away from the computer for 8 days, and am I glad to be back!! Happy new year to all.

Jan 02, 2007

Easy, yet very fun. I love doing these syllable puzzles.

azbee123: That song always comes into my head too when I see the word conjunction!
zaya*
Jan 02, 2007

Easy, but fun. I didn't have any extra sylables.

gaylewolfAus*
Jan 02, 2013
