Bigamy just sounds wrong in this quiz because the prefix is bi-, not big-. Technically of course the letters b, i and g appear after each other and in order, but...

Bigamy should absolutely not be on this quiz. It comes from the word roots bi- and -gam-, meaning "two" and "marriage" respectively. Therefore, the word actually has nothing to do with the word "big." That's like including "sparring" in a Types of Rings quiz.

Are you sure it's not big ami (love)? There was that show on the subject called Big Love. Could have been a translation.

Come on. You guessed the right answer, right? All the instructions say is that the word "big" is in the answer. It does not say that big has to be a morpheme.

Alliteration is very popular with 'big' things.

Right. I might have liked to see the Big Bopper on here.

Disappointed not to see Big Bad John. One of the least appreciated recent American folk songs.

I'd like that one as well as Big Bopper, but I never thought it was a folk song. Jimmy Dean wrote and sang it in the early '60s, and it was played on my same hometown radio station that played Elvis. I think it was considered a country song back then, but it crossed over onto the pop or rock charts - whatever they were called back then.

Didn't get big mac because didn't know what the patty was. I make patties with sausagemeat,onions, garlic, cheese and herbs. Therefore not a bigmac. What do others think?

In this case the description is loosely based on the McDonald's Big Mac sandwich jingle, "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a Sesame Seed Bun". Definitely some gray area on this one.

The song says patties, the clue is the song...

What about "bigshot" for the last one? The one that is 'bigwig'? Could that work too?

No, because shot obviously doesnt have anything to do with toupee or hair.

Never heard of big top, the rest was easy, well bighorn was sort of a guess, and big sleep took a long thought

Suddenly "Little Bighorn" makes much more sense...

I'm obviously not American, and I was lazy enough not to check that, always thought "silly native American names..."

The Little Bighorn is a tributary of the Bighorn River, which I assume was named for the sheep.
