    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">prerogative</span hide>? or was that just a <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">typo</span hide>? (and why am I asking all these questions?)

    Ummm... #5 looks like it could be acceptable - see this.

    5. Perhaps <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The project plaiced</span hide> or <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The project brilled</span hide> or even <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The project skated</span hide>? <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    5. <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">The project foundered.</span hide> is, I guess, what you are after but I think the original would certainly be understood, even if it is not pedantically correct!

    Re: Find the mistake!

    You could maybe have a project flounder and lose its balance....or be clumsy! But no. There is a incorrection that needs correction.

    Clue: Make floundered shorter!

    Sorry Hans....you will need to Brill and Skate a little more! <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
