A Glimpse Into the Kitchen of Language

Rob Kyff on

We often create words in the same way we prepare delicious foods: We slice them, dice them, season them, shake them and bake them. Voila!

Can you determine the method used to form the words in each set:

1) piano, aps, abs, sophs.

2) maudlin, tawdry, fortnight, bedlam.

3) chortle, brunch, motel, smog.

4) cuss, bust, passel, buddy.


5) burgle, enthuse, intuit, emote.

6) pea, cherry, succor, kudo.

7) laser, scuba, modem, sonar.

8) boycott, shrapnel, saxophone, sandwich.
