It's sad, but I can only remember the name of Hamlet's castle by remembering the name of the brewery in Strange Brew.

I think the "epitaph" clue might throw most people, because they are *definitely* going to expect "eulogy" to be accepted – eulogy is way more used to describe a funeral oration than epitaph.

You would never carve a eulogy on a tombstone though.

No, but I still found it confusing. Once I had "eulogy" in my head, I couldn't get past it. Most sources I found say that an epitaph is written text...only saw one that included speaking.

Yes. A bit frustrating. I managed to try epigraph, eulogy and encomium before running out of time just as I was typing epitaph.

You wouldn't carve a eulogy on a tombstone, but you also wouldn't deliver an epitaph as an oration. Elegy might work for both, but I think eulogy and epitaph are each one or the other.

I always thought it was spelled "euphenism". It's good to learn the correct spelling, but could that be accepted as a type in, please?

If we're going to accept my father's pronunciations, then we also have to accept chimley, samwich, and Massatusetts on other quizzes. :)

Sad that the boy detective wasn't Emil. Wrote in the wrong answer before reading the rest of the clue - loved that book
