Clever guesses

    Hope this isn't giving away too many secrets :biggrin:

    I was recently discussing things you can type to speed up your guesses for words that are similar.

    Two great examples are:

    STOVEN - a combination of 'stove' and 'oven'
    COMETEOR - a combination of 'comet' and 'meteor'

    Others that I do are:
    FRILLACE - covers both 'frill' and 'lace'
    FEMALE and WOMAN for a person draw as they cover both genders in one.

    Would anyone else like to share some of their words?

    basink = basin and sink
    gemerald = gem and emerald
    warmy = war and army
    Fathin = fat and thin

    Ones stolen from //Loviii--x:

    flead = flea and lead for dog draws
    grapea = is it a grape? is it a pea? no! its a grapea

    I had more but I can't remember :(

    STOVEN is classic. I personally do:

    ASLEEPING- asleep and sleeping
    IMACINTOSH- imac and macintosh

    I'm not exactly familiar with the iSketch wordlist though, since those are 2 examples from Yahoo! Graffiti :embarrassed:. Neither are particularly amazing, but they get the job done.

    * Eric_Cartman sits here making notes of all these combined words to use next time on iSketch.....

    I must admit, since I saw NoHints and //Loviii--x first use basink and cometeor, I've started typing in those for guesses too. Seems a handy way of guessing, and like you say Saffron, speeds up your guessing on similar words :biggrin:

    Made me think of words that you should always guess both, because people either read them incorrectly, or have the wrong meaning:

    DESSERT - DESERT
    SILVER - SLIVER
    ARC -ARK
    PEAK -PEEK
    MOUSSE - MOUSE
