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?

Never even cam close to the answer -- but a great puzzle nonetheless.
Feb 05, 2009

Very cornfoosing clues. I kept trying to find a wrod that ended with beach since that's what ends at the sea!
Feb 05, 2009

thank you your xlnc

great job - took me abit to get it so it was a good teaser!
Feb 05, 2009

Very good. No way was I going to figure it out, though.
Feb 05, 2009

Great teaser. I didn't get it I'm sorry to say, but I really tried. Thanks for posting.
Feb 06, 2012

Great teaser. Cleverly written - but I was way off track! Thanks for a good one! Any New York Giants fans? Congratulations!!
Feb 06, 2012

Excellent only sounds like XLNC if you say it fast. But the other hiunts had me going lol
Feb 06, 2012

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?
Feb 06, 2012

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.
Feb 06, 2012

Really clever! One of the best I've seen on Braingle.
Feb 06, 2012

crazy10man, the key words are HEAR and SEA that can lead you to the letter C. This riddle is all about sounds.
Feb 06, 2015

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!!
Feb 06, 2015

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.
Feb 06, 2015

Way over my head.
Feb 07, 2015

Difficult but clever and fun.

I don't remember seeing this one before.
