Grungy's Prefixes

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

Can you find a three-letter word that will go in front of each word in the group to make a new, compound word? For each group, the three-letter word will have just one letter changed from the answer to the previous group! (Example: Group 1 = Run, Group 2 = Fun, Group 3 = Sun)



1) Fight, walk, fish, nap

2) Back, throat, lass, let

3) Case, cracker, house, shell

4) Side, come, match, size


Answer

1) = cat (catfight, catwalk, catfish, catnap)

2) = cut (cutback, cutthroat, cutlass, cutlet)

3) = nut (nutcase, nutcracker, nuthouse, nutshell)

4) = out (outside, outcome, outmatch, outsize)

Grunge, my man! This was an enjoyable teaser back in the earlier months....so it is still an enjoyable teaser.. Even though it is on the easy side, to produce the same 3 letter prefix and to have crossword fun with it, during that time, can make any teaser worth doing over! Keep up the magnificent work and keep producing these teasers.

It took only seconds to solve, but I LOVED it!! Good job, Grunge!

Not my favorite type of teaser, but a good one nonetheless

I got the first 3 quickly, but had to take some time and think about the 4th. I resisted temptation to just give in and look at the answer and after several minutes, I got it.
I feel I had a good brain work out this morning.Thanks for the great teaser.

Actually it was the third set that took me a long time. I had FIRE on the brain... firehouse, firecracker, fireshell but knew it had to be a 3 letter prefix and I don't think there's a firecase anyway.

Loved this teaser. Had fun!

Nice teaser, Grungy. Really fun.
BTW, how do you get "all but the second one"? Brainy_1? If you got the others, then the second one had be either nat or cut? Just wondering.

Nice one. I got the first 3 easily enough. The last one had me stumped for a minute, but once it hit me I was ready to kick myself.

Very fun, not as easy as I thought it'd be, but still very do-able.

That was fun,and fairly easy I really enjoy those. Keep`em coming.

Dec 13, 2006

That's a cool teaser! I was confused at first, because in your example, all you changed was the first letter, so after cat I thought the others would be bat, hat, mat etc. once I figured it out I thought it was really cool. great job!

Dec 13, 2006

Fun and easy, just the way I like 'em!

Interesting teaser, a little different from others of this type, but very enjoyable too.
I am sure many friends would have noticed LMURRAY's compliments too! Thanks LM.

None stumped me for very long at all, but I had to think about each one a moment before the answer came. It was a nice mental warmup!

What really got me was how incredibly fun that was! I felt like I was doing the teaser because I wanted to see how the interesting premise turned into actual sets of prefixes that worked. I found joy in watching it unfold! From the sounds of things, other people noticed that too!

Good Job!

My first visit back in a year.. I thought the front page teaser looked vaguely familiar...

Hmm...

Sorry to double comment, but I just noticed something! This received Teaser of the Day on December 13, 2006 and now it is Teaser of the Day on December 13, 2009. An even three years!

Spooky.

Well this one must be the tri-annual teaser of the day for December 13. It was teaser of the day for this date in 2006, 2009, and now again in 2012.
Not sure why the braingle powers can't give other teasers chance instead of recycling old ones (at least this one, unlike A LOT of them, is by what appers to be an active user).
I enjoyed the teaser, even if it was a tad easy, just think there are so many newer ones that could be used.

I got nutcase and nuthouse right away, hmm... what does that say about me? Nice teaser!
