Word Fusion on

Published in Brain Teasers

Each statement describes two words that when fused together create a new unrelated word (not a compound word). The clues do not necessarily indicate in which order the two words are attached. Example: This is the oldness of a tablet (pill + age = pillage).

1) This is a child of the ocean.
2) This is when an insect runs away to get married.
3) This is the monotone melody of a writing instrument.
4) This is the charge for setting a fractured bone.


1) sea + son = season
2) ant + elope = antelope
3) pen + chant = penchant
4) cast + rate = castrate
