Some AUK WORD Fours and Fives
We all like to have a C when we have a K, but you don’t always get what you want. This quiz is about 4 letter words that include the letters A, U and K. Have a quick go to write down what 4 letter words you think you can make.
It makes it easier to remember the ones you didn’t know when you see the answers. This particular challenge is surely not a tricky one with lots of letters to juggle.
What letters fit into the pattern _ A U K
How about _ A K U
Are there other ways those letters can be placed?
The answer to that quiz are further down the page. Scroll down when you have written down the 4 letter words you can think of. In the meantime here area dozen interesting 5 letter words I have chosen that also include the letters AUK:
DUMKA Musical piece alternating between lively and sad moods KANZU A long white garment worn in parts of Africa
KAURU The edible stem of the cabbage tree KAWAU The black shag KEHUA A ghost or spirit KNAUR A knot in a tree KOURA The freshwater crayfish KULAN A wild Asian donkey – also KOULAN OAKUM Old untwisted ropes used to caulk the seams of ships OTAKU A young Japanese computer nerd PIKAU A rucksack PULKA A Lapland sledge shaped like a boat – Also PULKHA
So how did you go with the 4 letter words?
There were 16 words to find, but it would be impressive if you knew them all
Hopefully you found AUKS, but did you also spot SKUA? They are a cute anagram pair since they are both sea birds
There was one other anagram pair.
KAPU A Hawaiian set of rules for daily life
PAKU A large evergreen tree
The other 12 words were:
BAUK To refrain from proceeding - also CAULK CAUK An opaque compact mineral - also CAWK
KAGU A flightless bird HAKU The kingfish
KUIA An elderly Maori woman JAUK To dawdle KULA A ceremonial exchange of gifts on Pacific islands KUNA Croatian money. 100 LIPA =1 KUNE. Plural = KUNA RAKU A kind of Japanese earthenware KUTA A man or boy regarded as unpleasant or contemptible WAUK To scour and mill cloth
Doesn’t that just take the biscuit? I do a completely unrelated list and find a money item which was missed during the series of blogs on currencies!
Happy Scrabbling Patrick
