Yes. And rase.

So I think Bookpossum has two, and Sneaky Snake, Shayne Parkinson and Daithi have one apiece. Do I have that right?

I can think of a few others and I'm sure there are more, so I'll let this run for a bit.

seal, etc is great.

From the OED (a handy thing to have on subscription . I only used it to check, btw, not for inspiration):

lare - a turner's lathe
lear - a lesson; a binding tape; a colour of sheep
ele - obsolete spelling of oil. I may be pushing it on this one...

LOL, can we split the difference and give you lare, etc., and not the other? Once we go obsolete, all hell will break loose!

Which gives Shayne Parkinson three, Bookpossum two, and Sneaky Snake and Daithi one each.

That seems fair.

Edited: "lare" is listed as obsolete, too, so cancel that one.

OK, let's wrap this up. I've thought of a few others, but I'm sure this isn't exhaustive:

user, sure, suer, rues, ruse
rats, star, tars, arts, tsar
slit, silt, list, tils, lits
rose, roes, ores, sore, eros
slat, lats, salt, last, alts (high pitched musical notes; I had to look that one up)

Bookpossum or Shayne Parkinson should pose the next poser.

I'm cool with Possum giving the next quiz, but I did want to defend "Sith". I'm guessing Issybird was thinking Star Wars, but according to dictionary.com, sith is an archaic adverb that means "since".

Edit: fun quiz by the way.

I'm sorry. I thought Star Wars as you inferred. I looked it up to check and that's all I found. Mea culpa.

If you've got a question, go for it, I'd say. Keep the ball rolling.

And, thanks!

Are we still waiting for Hamlet to come out from behind the arras? In the meantime, here are a few questions with a literary flavour:

1. What is Nero Wolfe's favourite drink during office hours?

2. What did the title character in John Fowles's "The Collector" collect?

3. Who wrote "Good fences make good neighbours"?

4. Who founded Pravda?

5. Where did English novelist Samuel Butler emigrate to in 1859?

1.-3. No to these.

4. Yes - Lenin that is, not the Devil!

5. Yes, New Zealand. (But I'm not a Kiwi - born in Oz of English parents.)

So 2 points to SneakySnake.
