Pretty easy but fun. I just thought organize was spelled wrong, I didn't know it could be both ways

I thought it was despise - it was the only one that didn't have an "r" in it! Oh well I didn't know about the -ize thing. you learn something new every day.

they all fit!! and organise is spelled that way in the UK and organize in the USA, just like color and colour, labor, lobour, tire, tyre, I lived in both the UK and here in the states so I know this..

I didn't even think of that. I did say organise, but not because of the diff't ways it can be spelled. I know it's spelled with an s in UK and Aus., but I wasn't even tinking of that. I just thought it wasn't a word, like organ, than ise. I was like, does that mean like to make into an organ? Wasn't thinking, sorry! Good teaser though!

I thought it was despise because it is the only one that did not have to do with running a business. (Although I'm sure it comes to play in often enough!)

I got the right answer for the wrong reason. Oh, well, I guess it counts anyway.

I guessed organize because of the spelling, but I never realized that in other countries it is spelled differently. What a wonderful education I'm getting from the daily teasers. Thanks for posting.

Wow! I didn't know that it could be spelled like that. Great teaser!

It's also the only one that is a proper word without the -ise ending. That was my answer.

i said "despise" because it was the only one that is viewed as negative...all the others would be considered positive things.
avonmaAus*
Mar 16, 2008

I said "despise" because all of the others was actually DOING something, and despise was only a feeling. I didn't catch the different spelling of organise. good one, though.

I guessed "compromise" because it can be a noun as well as a verb.
