    3 or 4

    Each sentence below emphasises a context of some kind. Your task is to find a THREE or FOUR letter word that defines the context of the sentence. This 3 or 4 letter word is hidden in the sentence as consecutive letters!

    1. Weak, pallid and sickly, the man wandered in the dark.
    2. The slender pointed part of the sentinels spear was blunt.
    3. The feathers of the chicken were tinted to look stylish and fashionable.
    4. His fraudulent actions were caught on the banks camera as he attempted to swindle the cashier.
    5. The socially inept person sat in the corner due to his dull, bookish character.
    6. No one believed after he explained the incident, because he was foolish and crazy.
    7. It was not smart to damage and impair the antique table.
    8. The herbal medicine was soothing and comforting on the wound.
    9. All Palestinian citizens are bound to an area within certain limits.
    10. He was afraid to greet the cruel dreaded monster of a man.
    Regards,
    Rudi

    DINT... An impression or hollow in a surface More than likely not right but it is a nice word, which you won't find in dictionery.com but the OED
