Compound Clash

Language brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.

 

Puzzle ID:#28491
Fun:*** (2.9)
Difficulty:*** (2.26)
Category:Language
Submitted By:cdrockAus****!

 

 

 



Listed below are clues that refer to 2 different words. The sound of these words, put together, make a different compound word. Also, just to make things even trickier, when you figure out the words, you might need to switch them around to find the compound word.

Ex. A piece of bread used for making some sandwiches shaped as the fifth letter of the alphabet. (Bun + E = Bunny)

Can you figure out all the compound words?

1. A relation's short sleep.
2. The talker was the opposite of quiet.
3. A cube-shaped vehicle.
4. Spade's situation.

They all made since to me once I saw the answers. I did get two right on my own. I enjoyed the teaser myself. Thanks for posting.

Good teaser. I missed #4 too. I thought about cards for spade, but still didn't think of suit. I don't play cards much. I don't spend much time dwelling on the ones that I don't get pretty quick--just click on answer.

I didn't get n.4 because it says "Spade's" instead of "Spades'" - I was thinking of a small hand shovel for gardening...
MadelulabelleAus*
Jan 31, 2008

Nice one! I misread #2 and just plain missed #4...
SweetPotatoAus*
Jan 31, 2008

Good one ... thanks. The first 3 were somewhat easy, but I got hung up on "shovel" for the "spade's" and couldn't get past it.

#4 could also be "placecard," I think.

First three were very easy, #4 stumped me for a minute.

Divan also works for #3 - Die - singular dice

I only got 2. I wish you had said the first part of the clue did not have to be the first part of the answer. That would have made it a bit easier.
HABS2933Aca*
Jan 31, 2014

Babe, it did say you may need to flip the words.
Got them all after some thought. First came up with Kidnap but napkin works too!
Maggiethe8th*us*
Jan 31, 2014

I'm impressed how many got it right off-I missed 3 & 4, and got kidnap-love these things!
eighsseAus**

Poorly constructed, but good content. Good work
lukasiwicz*

It seems to me that placecard (place = sutiation and spade = card) would work equally well for #4.
