The fez is Moroccan, not Turkish. It originated in the Moroccan city of Fez, for which it is named, and by the 17th century was already very fashionable there. It wasn't until after the Ottoman Empire adopted it for military and civil official use in the 1820s that it was worn there to replace the turban in an effort to initiate various cultural reforms. Because of its use by the Ottomans, the fez became more popular throughout the Arabic Middle East and northern Africa, resulting in its wide recognizability today.

For the long, narrow, deep inlet between cliffs, I think "fissure" and/or "fault" should be acceptable. Unless theres some reason those don't work...

I, too, used "fissure" before I thought of the correct answer.

Why should these be accepted? These are narrow breaks and would not suggest a cliff at all. No where in the definition of fissure or fault is there mention of cliffs. This is vocabulary, either get it right on the money or miss the question.

why shouldn't they be. Do you even know what the definition of a cliff is?

Yes, a cliff is a type of note used by students who are too lazy to study.

And maybe clarify by saying sea inlet instead of just inlet. I feel like that's pretty important.

Another way in which the terms fissure and fault are found wanting is that they don't imply the presence of any water, whereas a fjord requires salt water. They're likely not designed by Slartibartfast, either.

Yes, I think a fjord is a flooded glacial valley that opens into the sea. The clue seems inaccurate. Got it though. I missed flapjack since that is a different thing in the UK

It's a vocabulary quiz. If you don't know what a fjord is then you do't get the point.

I don't know if this is true for anyone else, but has anyone ever felt like a word looks like what it means? I mean, I look at the words 'gem' and 'jewel' and they just seem... like, you know... like jewels? I'm not the greatest at explaining myself, so try to bear with me. And the words 'gold' and 'silver' seem the same way, and 'flower', 'flora', 'fauna', 'fawn', 'kitten', etc. It's just weird, but... I like it.

Agreed. Alternate spellings of the word should be accepted. I learned it as "fiord" and missed it because I didn't know the other spelling. Both are in the dictionary.

The Navy Diver clue should be changed as Frogman actually refers to anyone who is trained in diving and combat. The term is used for other groups besides the Navy quite extensively including the army, airforce and even some police forces.

I know what you mean. I usually get them all but sometimes I just get flummoxed by a word or two. I guess if the clue doesn't stimulate your brain in the right way, it's hard to jump-start that connection and know what word is meant. Generally I find the clues pretty sharp, though.
