1. Bassoon
Clue: A woodwind instrument that dates back to the mid 16th century.
The bassoon is a woodwind instrument that finds its origins in the dulcian, a Renaissance era woodwind instrument. The bassoon is commonly used to play bass and tenor-range music. Composers often write music for the bassoon. Vivaldi, Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven all wrote pieces that feature the bassoon prominently.

2. Toffee
Clue: A sweet treat that is sometimes made with nuts or raisins.
Toffee is a candy that is made by boiling molasses with butter. Common toffee flavors are rum & butter, chocolate, vanilla, chocolate, rum & raisin, and honeycomb.

3. Keelless
Clue: A term that can be used to describe boats and ships.
A keel is a structural element of a ship that is called the "spine of the ship." It is a long beam in the center of the ship that the hull is built around. Keel is an interesting word because some scholars believe it to be the first English language word ever recorded in writing.

4. Appellee
Clue: A character in a courtroom.
An appeal, in law jargon, is the request to change a ruling made by one court. Often appeals are filed in higher courts that have the ability to reverse rulings made by lower courts. The party that files the appeal is appellant. The appellant wants the first ruling changed. The other party is the appellee. The appellee won the case in the lower court and wants the ruling to stay unchanged.

5. Walloon
Clue: A Belgian language.
Walloon is a Romance language heard in Wallonia, Belgium. It sounds most like the French language. However, it is not a French dialect. People who speak the Walloon language are called Walloons.

6. Bookkeeper
Clue: This word has 3 consecutive double letters!
This is a fun word that can be used to stump your friends. It is one of only a few words in the English language that has 3 consecutive double letters. If you consider hyphenated words, sweet-toothed also has 3 consecutive double letters.
