Thank you orlok.

Here are some witty questions to test your word power. One point each for correct answers.

1. What word of six letters contains six words besides itself, without transposing any of its letters?

2. In what common word does the letter O sound like the letter I?

3. Can you name three words that begin with P, in which the P is silent?

4. Can you name three common words, each containing a B, in which the B is silent?

5. Can you name a word containing the letter I, in which the I is silent?

6. What word, by changing the position of one letter, becomes its opposite?

7. What word is it from which the whole may be taken and yet some will be left?

8. What word of five letters has only one left when two letters are subtracted from it?

9. What word, when deprived of one of its letters, makes you sick?

10. Is there a word in the English language that contains all the vowels?

11. In a certain word the letter L is in the middle, in the beginning, and at the end. There is only one L in the word. What is this peculiar word?

12. What word of five letters has six left after you take two away?

13. What word of fifteen letters is there from which you can subtract twelve and leave ten?

14. Can you think of two eight-letter words, one of which has one syllable and the other five syllables?

15. What word of five syllables is it that, if you take away one syllable, no syllable remains?

16. Which word in the English language contains the greatest number of letters?

17. There is a common word of three syllables from which, if you take away five letters, a male will remain. If you take away four letters, a female will remain. If you take away three, a great man will appear, and the whole word tells you what Joan of Arc was.

18. What word of ten letters might be spelled with five?

19. What words can be pronounced quicker and shorter by adding another syllable to them?

20. What word of eight letters is there from which you can subtract five and leave ten?

21. There are two words in the English language in which the five vowels follow each other in their regular order—A, E. I, O, U. Which words are they?

22. What word of four syllables represents Sin riding on a little animal?

23. What is the longest word in the English language?
