Operation: Weather-Ectomy

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


Puzzle ID:#26913
Fun:*** (2.6)
Difficulty:**** (3.12)
Submitted By:cnmne*us*****




Six words have had their weather terms removed. The weather terms have been placed into Group A. The remaining letters of each word have been placed into Group B. Your task is to reconstitute the words by merging each weather term with the proper set of letters. Other than merging the two groups together, there is no rearranging of the letters. Example: sand + pne = spanned (SpANneD).

Group A: cloud, hail, rain, sleet, storm, wind
Group B: arngg, astba, atage, bevora, diabmn, higa


cloud + atage = catalogued (CataLOgUeD)
hail + bevora = behavioral (beHAvIoraL)
rain + arngg = arranging (aRrAngINg)
sleet + diabmn = disablement (diSabLEmEnT)
storm + higa = histogram (hiSTOgRaM)
wind + astba = waistband (WaIstbaND)

No clue. Really clever though. Good job!!

Whew! That was HARD!

But I thought it was very creative, and I liked it a lot. Keep them coming, maybe I will get better at them!
Dec 16, 2005

Liked this one alot, but must admit, after figuring a few out, I got lazy. Wish they had a logic grid type scratchpad so I wouldn't have to use pencil and paper.
Dec 16, 2005

yea! this one was a stumper. didn't get a single one. too hard 4 me.
Dec 16, 2005

Too hard for me!!!
Dec 16, 2005

Whoa! Way too hard for me! It`s only 6 am & I am not awake yet LOL
Dec 16, 2005

However, I am sure it is a good one lol

Oh boy, this one was absolutely faaaaannn-shmabulous!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wish there were higher ratings to choose from, 'cause, IMHO, this one surely deserves a 21-thumbs-up!!!
(of course, the fact that I was only able to figure out 3 of 'em is beside the point)
Please oh please oh please keep crankin' some more of these out!?!?!
Dec 16, 2005

I give very few comments, but this one deserves a definite thumbs up for creativity! I was able to get the last five after looking at the first one. This one was great! GOOD JOB!
Dec 16, 2005

lots of well deserved good comments,,,and I will add one more
W O W ! !
Dec 16, 2005

didnt get any of them, but what a good teaser...i enjoyed trying.
Dec 16, 2005

too much brainpower for me this morning... couldn't quite get them, and at first I thought the new word was still a weather term. oh well
Dec 16, 2005

Verrry challenging! How fun! Boy, I didn't get it!
Dec 16, 2005

Like person above I had to look at answer to 1st one before I ofollowed the approach. Then got the rest of them when I realized things did have to be fully integrated but stayed in same order - first though you had to keep each element totally tother but insert someplace . When that didn't work went to other extreme and just mixed up all the letters - Anyway GREAT PUZZLE - maybe just a little clarification would have been nice.

Dec 16, 2005

Wow, that was hard, I only got arranging. Really good job, I had alot of fun trying.
Dec 16, 2005

That was soooo hard i was rearanging the wrong way ....I feel stupid!!!!
Dec 16, 2005

I've been a lurker here for a while, but I had to register just to give this one 2 big thumbs up! I had to use pen and paper, but I finally got them all.
Dec 16, 2005

WOW!!! I actually got all of them right!!!
Dec 16, 2005

2 letters: E Z
Dec 16, 2005

What the heck was that all ABOUT?????? Must be past my bedtime!!!!!
Dec 16, 2005

Excellent teaser. Thanks for sharing!
Dec 16, 2005

Har dbut good. I didn't really get the whole problem. Keep it comin'!!!
Dec 16, 2005

Hmmm. I got two of them and loved this concept. I should have worked longer on 2 of them but didn't know 'histogram' at all. Need to improve my vocab I guess. GREAT ONE!
Dec 16, 2005

Dec 16, 2005

great teaser!!!

this is the hardest rated one i've seen. usually the really hard ones aren't fun, but this was great.

I came up with coagulated instead of catalogued for cloud + atage. You might want to add that to the answers as a possibility.

Dec 16, 2005

um, scratch previous comment. I forgot to keep the letters in order. OOPS!!!!
Dec 16, 2005

Dec 16, 2005

Yeah, that was very HARD! But I like that! I also didn't know the word "histogram", although I kept trying to use those two together... Very good, Thanks, this must have taken some work to create!
Dec 17, 2005

That wasn't even any fun!
(user deleted)
Dec 17, 2005

didn't get histogram... not bad
Dec 18, 2005

That was the hardest one I've come across, but still a lot of fun trying to figure it out (Which I couldn't)
Dec 19, 2005

Well, you certainly got me! I thought the words were supposed to be weather terms! But, you got me good!! Fun teaser, even tho I didn't have a clue!! Excuse now, I'm going out to find a clue!!
Dec 19, 2005
