    Perfect...Both Hans and Rory.

    At least No. 6 is keeping this puzzle alive a little longer!

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by Rudi on 24-Aug-05 12:51. Edited No. 6 due to a typo. Sorry Rory....if it were not for this you may have had this one too!!!)</P>The jumbled words below represent valid dictionary words that are not often used in everyday dialog.

    Rory, Hans...
    Sorry about no 6. It seems I forgot to add a letter. I modified the original. I guess the answer will be a little easier now...?

    Re: Neglected Words

    The non verbed (can't be that answer) is correct!

    I said nothing of the fact that it MUST be verbs only....

    Well done!

    but #6: to deviate, go wrong - must be a verb, no? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
