I'm a ten-letter word, but when I am heard,
It is a surprise, but I'm half that size.

My first sound is found when half isn't around.
When a pair is amiss, the other is called this.

The second has one where normally two form a pair.
You will get the nod if you look in a pod.

Together, my fifth and third hold music that is heard.
A pair you are seeking, alphabetically speaking.

And the fourth sound, it will be found
If you look where I send, in the middle of end.

What word am I?





What Next?

Awesome!!!! well done!!! Good Job!! A language teaser in riddle form! Of course I didn't get it!

Difficult, but mainly because of misleading hints; i.e., 'Pair' is used instead of 'couple.' Riddle gives the idea that the word sounds shorter than its actual spelling. To figure out the answer to this teaser one must definitely think 'outside the box'...

Wow Marc, Hard but interesting. You do know that two peas in a pod refers to "snug as" not how many peas are in a pod right? I got the "p" part OK but was too literal on the pair part. Double U therefore just U so after that was pretty much out of the game

Very clever, but waaaaay over my head. Never would have figured this one out in a million years. Thanks for posting.

Sorry but I think this was poorly written.I had no clue as to what I was hunting.

Wow, I'm glad that I didn't try to solve that one for too long---I wouldn't have ever gotten it!!! What does "the sound of fitness" mean to this teaser?
Good rhymes though.

Expediency means fitness; not physical fitness, but fitness in terms of appropriateness to the purpose at hand.

It was too hard for me. I did get peas in a pod, but I didn't understand what we were doing. But, it was very creative.

Sorry, but I am with Doehead on this one. I think this was meant to be more "cute" than a genuine riddle.

I did not enjoy this one at all. Sorry, but it was so obscure that it was boring even to read the whole thing.

Although there are some negative comments, i'll say that this one was fun and hard, but yea, bit misleading. nicely written though, great job!

Expediency? Are you kidding me? You must think we are all super brainy. This was way far away from being fun to figure out!

Very clever and very creative!

THIS was a tricky one. It was clever and creative but also impossible. Did ANYONE get it? Hi to Sis and KiPA

AROB and I'll stand by my prior comment. Nice to hear from GW.

Zero fun factor. Sorry. This is one of those which only sort of makes sense after you read the answer. A good riddle should lead with some sort of realistic cues about where we're meant to follow. This one had a brick wall between the riddle and the answer.

Where's the enjoyment in that? Sorry.

I didn't get it Gayle, and I must agree with doehead.
