I'm a ten-letter word, but when I am heard,
I have only four, not one letter more.

My first two sounds are neat; a kind of sheet,
That starts with spread, not the kind on a bed.

Of my sounds, the third is what will be heard,
alphabetically, in the middle of modus operandi.

If you want to hear more, then like the shore,
I end at the sea, that's a hint, you see.

What word am I?





What Next?

Very cornfoosing clues. I kept trying to find a wrod that ended with beach since that's what ends at the sea!

Excellent only sounds like XLNC if you say it fast. But the other hiunts had me going lol

Well written and clever; however, I don't understand how "If you want to hear more, then like the shore,
I end at the sea," equates to C. Wouldn't that be the letter A?

That was quite fun to attempt to figure out. However, I did not arrive at the answer. I could not figure it out, therefore it was a successful teaser.

Really clever! One of the best I've seen on Braingle.

crazy10man, the key words are HEAR and SEA that can lead you to the letter C. This riddle is all about sounds.

I did not get it, but it is a very good teaser and took some thinking to come up with it. Enjoyable, clever and fun!!

Another great teaser Marc. Was unable to solve it but the answer was right in front of me once it was pointed out. Can't believe I missed it.

Difficult but clever and fun.

I don't remember seeing this one before.
