SymbolRiddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.
I am a world-renowned "symbol". In the English language, if I'm added to a noun, it turns to an adjective (in most cases).
If you put horizontal lines through me, I become a currency, but it is not used in many countries.
In Spanish, I am a "symbol", but also I am a word. I am used to connect words and phrases. If you watch your School House Rock, I go along with a junction.
What am I?
AnswerI am Y.
When Y is added to a noun, it often makes it an adjective; i.e. Hair+y=hairy, Smell+y=Smelly, etc.
When you put two horizontal lines through a Y, it makes the Yen symbol, found in Japan.
In the Spanish language, Y is the translation for "and", which is a conjunction. If you watch School House Rock, they do a whole skit on Conjunction Junction.
