Ok now that we are talking about letters... what about this

There are at least 4 words in the English language where the letter "f" is pronounced like the letter "v". "of" is one of the words, does anyone know the others? (Respond only if you know at least 2) If not just keep on thinking

Logtar, are you sure you mean English words, i.e., in a dictionary, or borrowed words from other languages? Welsch words in English have the /f/ consonant make an "v" sound.

you got it. That was an easy one... even though I think you have beaten most of them. Now lets see how you do with this one.

Ushers contains the most personal pronouns spelled consecutively within it: he, her, hers, she, and us, totalling five pronouns.

What word in the English language contains the most words spelled consecutively within it?

Hint... it contains 23.

(harkening back to my Linguistics degree days at KSU)


...hitherwards or thitherwards....???

I think so...I remember the question from like, 10 years ago. That's my best guess (I know - I gave you 2 answers tho).

I thought and thought about this one, thinking there's a twist someplace but the only thing I can think of is "lump". And even if you ask how I got to that, I'm not certain I could answer ither than I know it's latin. 'nunc' or 'nunon i lump' or something.

Hm. I'm not confident of my response though. Where are you getting these humdingers from? Jezuz

EDIT: if you're curious about my knowledge of latin, translate this: "Medici graviores morbos, asperis remediis curant." I have a tattoo that sez that, and for bonus points give me the name of the famous ancient world historian who said it. HINT: his lastname is a common modern-day redneck name.

This is the best I can come up with....


Dinner originally referred to the largest meal of the day, which was eaten at midday, to give farm agricultural laborers a rest break and something to sustain them to the end of the day. However, this meal has always been something of a "movable feast". During the reign of Henry VIII it was eaten as early as 10 a.m. and then got progressively later until, during the reign of Queen Victoria, it became fashionable to sit down to dinner at 10 p.m. The extreme lateness of this meal meant that many people became hungry in the afternoon and that's why teatime was invented.

As the time of the large meal of the day varied so much it led to a great deal of confusion over names. Some people called this "large meal" term, dinner, while others used the word that had been applied originally to the evening meal, supper. In our experience, country folk tend to call "lunch" dinner, probably because they, until very recently, worked in the fields during the day and ate a large meal at lunch. They had to have a separate name for the evening meal, so they stuck with supper. City folk tend to call the evening meal dinner as it is usually their largest meal of the day, and they have lunch at midday. This is not universally true, though, and there are many regions of Britain where the large meal, eaten early in the evening is called tea.

Speaking of lunch: here Logtar, is one for you:

What is it called when two words are combined to form one word: lunch+breakfast=brunch? NOT a compound word. That would be "doghouse". I'm talking motor+hotel=motel.

Meggy: close...
