Well, I've counted letters, consonants, vowels, syllables and positions of specific letters, and other than the letter 'i' always being in an odd position (but not in every word), I'm not seeing anything odd.

I hope my answer is adequately hidden (I think Greg changed the background color slightly from what it used to be). If it is hidden, highlight below if you want to see what I think the answer is.



They all have an odd numbered first letter.

Edit: Hold on, I'm having trouble with color tags.
Answer? What answer?
I was just reflecting on how warm you are. :!)

LOL, must be the weather. :biggrin:

I don't know what the right color tag is but for some reason, the old way of entering it wasn't taking...I've never had to embed the color code in quotes before.

Edit: Aha, got the right code so I can hide my guess at the answer and not spoil it for others if I'm right.

I looked at those words again---one thing I see is that there are sequences of three words that have the same letter---but, if that's all that it is...

Don't squawk amigo, it's a mosaic of wagsome cameos. It only has half of what it could have.

It's difficult to understand these words made of letters when we don't write even half of them.
