I couldn't stop thinking of sloth for "slow animal." Could you give a better hint, like maybe "slow-moving gastropod?"

:D I also thought of sloth first. "Snail" came to my mind shortly afterwards. But if I read such clue as yours, I'll most probably give up on trying to figure it out.

I gave up. At first I thought I was spelling it wrong. Then I kept trying other variations. Slothe (Some British 'add an e' variation ), Sloths. (plural) etc.

No one spells sloth with an E on the end - it's not a British spelling at all.

Fun quiz. "Made a mistake". A little ambiguous. Could be taken as a noun and therefore ERROR or a verb in which case ERRED. I tried error and then went in a completely different direction. I think both should be accepted. Both are five letters, both work. Either one could trigger ERRED. Good quiz.

How could "made a mistake" *possibly* be construed as a clue for a noun?? Maybe it could by someone who does not know what nouns and verbs are, but JetPunk is all about expanding our horizons and increasing our knowledge, not pandering to the lowest intellectual denominator. If someone gets "erred" wrong, they will learn something. If the completely wrong "error" is accepted, their grammatical deficiencies have no chance to improve.

How could "made a mistake" *possibly* be construed as a clue for a noun?? If the answer is someone who made a mistake, it's quite possible to be a noun. It can't be a clue for "error" though, I agree about that.

Knew all of these except I'd never heard of a "nonet" before... but... with the first and last letters and the clue that it's five letters long it wasn't difficult to deduce.

Yeah, got that one on a pure guess, just plugging in letters between the n and t that sounded like they might be a musical word.

Yes it is. An aroma is pleasant, an odor not so. The confusion comes from people using the terms interchangeably, when they're not.

You are only encouraging laziness when you do that. The Astor family spelled their name ASTOR! - Why would you change it to Aster which, as far as I know, is a flower?

Since everyone else is nitpicking, so shall I in this case. One usually runs away first and then marries, not the other way around. Thus the clue should be: Run Away + Marry.

I dont' agree with the "Empty" clue. Empty means there is nothing in the vessel/item/etc. but "not full" could or could not be empty. This should be tweaked.

isnt calling a dingo a dog like saying a wolf is a dog? Doesnt seem correct to me. I believe dog and dingo are both subspecies of the wolf and not dog=dingo or dingo is a breed of dog. (ow and I missed two, but they were the lower percentage, one of them I really didnt get the sentence, had no idea what how who or when theywere asking.)
