    Re: Salty Words

    Preston - your 1st word is correct. The word <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>binnacle</font color=yellow></span hi> is a word, but considered uncommon to all but sailors <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>. The 3rd and 4th words do not appear in the English Online Dictionary.

    Hans - Both of your words are on my list of four. <img src=/S/bullseye.gif border=0 alt=bullseye width=45 height=15>

    That means, one word remains...

    Nope! Not according to this online dictionary. It offered an alternative: TEN<font color=blue>T</font color=blue>ACLE. But, it is a "T" word, we're looking for...

    Re: Salty Words

    Does <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #000000; font-weight: bold"><font color=yellow>TABERNACLE</font color=yellow></span hi> count as a common word?

    Re: Salty Words

    Right you are. Can't say I recognize the word, but it is in the English online dictionary. Perhaps it's French origin would explain its omission from the original list I was using. I don't know... <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
