DoubletsLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
Some words can be used as both nouns and adjectives. In this teaser, you will be given a definition. That definition can be replaced by a single word that is used twice, once as an adjective, the other as a noun.
For example: "a 12 inch podiatrist specialty" is a "foot foot".
Given the following four definitions, what are the corresponding doublets?
1) an underweight source of illumination
2) an ordinary prairie
3) a quick period of not eating
