If one were seeking three-word common phrases (such as "live and learn") where there are two "front-back" words (such as "live", "learn") and one "mid" word (such as "and"), what would be truly rare about what is shared by the following group of words?

all, back, day, neck, time


All the words in the group can form three-word common phrases by repeating the same word as the "front" word AND the "back" word.

all in all
back to back

time after time

This one was fun for me to do and I hope it will be easy and fun for you to solve.

But it's not the REAL challenge.

That's to come up with MORE three-word common phrases that fit the same genre, such as;

arm in arm

(there are - at least - more than 30 or so additional ones).

If you can come up with more (one at-a-time, please) then send them to me in a PM (personal message) and I will post them here. Let me know in the message if you wish to be credited.

All who do so will also receive a SPECIAL award.

Thanks ... and good luck !!

That "PM" should be "Private Message"
... not "Personal Message".

Get it by clicking on "Community" (atop your screen) and then on "Private Messages" beneath that.

I thought of day to day as well. Clever!
