Unexpected Meaning - 19/12/2020

On my study list there is a word I have often found difficult to see

It seems like an ordinary word that everyone would recognise

However, today my eye caught the meaning and I was surprised


The word is URINATOR - What do you think it means?


One who dives under water in search of something, as for pearls

If you are a pearl diver please put URINATOR on your passport :-)


Maybe words with AIOU and no E are hard to untangle

Here are some other words in that category with similar consonants:


TABOURIN

A small drum that is longer in the body than a TABOR

There are other useful spellings of this - TABORIN and TABORINE


CURATION

The work performed by a CURATOR.


NOCTURIA

Excessive urination during the night


DURATION

The portion of time during which something exists


MINOTAUR

This is allowed because there is a minotaur beetle

The plural is minotaur beetles so you cannot pluralise minotaur


QUARRION

An Australian cockatiel. It can also be spelled QUARRIAN


RAINOUTS

Atomic fallouts occurring in precipitation


SUTORIAN

An adjective related to cobbling (shoe mending)

SUTORIAL has the same meaning


Happy Scrabbling
