Yet another quiz that mistakenly calls a Louisiana swamp a bayou. A bayou may run through a swamp, but a bayou is a river that can flow in either direction when the tides change or rainfall increases flow. Bayous exist in much of the U.S. A swamp may or may not have a bayou running through it or into it, or a bayou may have a swamp alongside it. In the same way that the Gulf of Mexico is not a river, a swamp is not a bayou. Great quiz, some very unique questions.

That is one definition of a bayou. There are others.

I read your definition, but I'm still with Packerswin14. They are both types of wetlands, but they are not the same thing in our region. Usually a bayou is navigable while a swamp is broader and more shallow. A swamp is usually more seasonal and tends to be formed by overflow from another water source and is only navigable in the wet season by shallow-bottom boats. Swamps often have bayous running through them. They are very similar but we have both in my area and people here know the difference. Obviously you disagree, and perhaps it is different in other areas of the country.

I do not know who developed the Wikipedia entry, but in Louisiana (where I have lived for 59 years) a bayou is NEVER a swamp.

I was schooled on the difference between marsh, swamp, and bayou by a gentleman from Lafayette, LA and his teachings were expounded upon by another gentleman from Houma, LA. I got the clue but agree that there are issues with it. With the similarity between them, most clues would be ambiguous at best, forcing one to know either the preceding or succeeding answer to avoid typing all 3 as guesses. TL;DR -- Not the best clue, but good enough.

A "hijab" is a scarf that covers the head and the hair, but leaves the face exposed. It has nothing to do with a veil. Perhaps you are thinking of "niqab", which is a veil. You may wish to change your clue to "Muslim headscarf", which would be more accurate.

definition of a Hijab is "a veil that covers the head and chest, which is often worn by Muslim women beyond the age of puberty in the presence of adult males outside their immediate familyas a form of modest attire". It is still a veil. A veil does NOT have to cover the face. Definition of a veil is "an article of clothing or cloth hanging that is intended to cover some part of the head OR face, OR and object of some significance" Therefore the clue should stand...it just says Muslim veil

While the dictionary definition includes the use of the word "veil" to describe something covering the head, most speakers of English understand it to mean covering the face. In other words, most people do not refer to headscarfs or headwear as veils, unless they are designed to also cover the face at some point, such as a bridal veil. My post was to suggest that the clue could have been more in line with the way we use the term "veil".

Only missed apple... if you had said... red delicious, fuji, sour green.. maybe I would have gotten it.

Also, hijab is just modest dress. Most often this refers to the head covering worn by females. You could call it a head scarf. It *can* include a veil, but doesn't have to, and usually does not, and when you refer to hijab to mean veil and not headscarf a lot of people will be confused.
A veil is called a niqab. Also five letter word that ends in b, but starts with a different letter. Body covering = abaya (in the Saudi style). Head covering = hijab (though it can mean all modest dress). Face covering/veil = niqab. Full-body "bee-keeper suit" (taleban style) = birka/burqa.

Although it has nothing to do with my religion, as I age, more and more I can see the benefits in wearing a scarf when I go out in public. It's a great way to hide a wrinkled neck and a bad hair day. Give me a few more years and I'll think wearing a veil is a great idea, too.

I realize that. I was just thinking that they want to hide the attractiveness of the women there, while the irony is that for some of us it would do the opposite and mask the unattractive effects of aging.

Can the people arguing the definitions not get the answers because of the clue or are you all just arguing. Bayou was the first thing that came to my mind as well as hijab. It was an enjoyable quiz and I don't understand why you all argue the semantics.

Strictly speaking, the Magic Flute is not a classic opera (although by general public it is widely regarded as such), but a singspiel, which means that the narrative passages between arias, ensembles and choruses, which in an opera proper would be sung in recitativo, are spoken. Maybe it would be better to chose another well known example?

I'm not familiar with "The Magic Flute." Is that a notable opera? I'm far from an expert, but I've never heard of it. Thankfully I was able to figure it out after I had filled in everything else by just thinking of 5 letter words that started and ended with the right letters.

The answer has to start with the last letter of the word that preceded it ("drunk"). So it has to start with K or the rule of the game doesn't apply.

It took me forever to think of "tilde". Even though I know the word, I needed the first and last letters, plus 2 minutes to think of it. If it were above an ñ, I would have gotten it right away... but by itself it spurs thoughts of "about" or "approximately".
