Inconsistencies - 13/12/2020
Yes it has been a long time since my last post.
I will try to resume of more frequent schedule with a new format
It will just be a few comments about words that came up recently
No more quizzes. Everyone today wants immediate answers!
After the AGM Cathy tried to play SAILMEN, but that is no good
I suggested ISLEMAN. She thought that looked less like a word
The other alternatives are MALINES, MENIALS and SEMINAL
However, Cathy is right, words don't always make sense.
e.g. I don't know why COALMINE is allowed but not GOLDMINE
Fortunately if you have those letters you can play MODELING
Another odd one is that WISEWOMAN is allowed but not WISEMAN
Fortunately with those letters you can play MANWISE
However, in that case why is WOMANWISE is not allowed
Another one is that INHAULER is good but not INHAULED
Fortunately with the second group of letters you can play UNHAILED
This one can be explained. INHAUL is a type of line used on a sail
It is a noun, and an INHAUL can also be called an INHAULER
It is still a bit odd that INHAUL isn't a verb, but it is what it is.
