Technically hyperinflation is the rapid devaluation of currency. Things aren't getting more expensive but the paper you use to pay for those things is worth a lot less day-to-day or in true cases of hyperinflation, hour-by-hour. Also, not all content in a web document is hypertext. That refers only to the text that has a web link embedded in the text.

Hyperspace should work for hyperdrive. There are more works of science fiction which mention the former than the latter.

Hyperlink refers to the address, or "the way to get there" - not the actual content.

Actually, "hyperlink" just refers to the link *to* the address (or, put another way, the link containing the address). The address itself would be a URL.

Could you add the British spelling for Hypoglycaemia?

Seconded. I nearly missed this when it wasn't accepted but tried alternatives knowing that US spelling may differ.

Yes. Americans never were too good at spelling. Hyperglycemia is just plain WRONG. The stem -aemia comes from the Greek αίμα (blood) and thus words such as anaemia, glycaemia etc. require the "a" in front of the "e".

Technically, "hyperflex" is to bend a joint beyond normal range. "Hyperextend" is to straighten a joint beyond normal range (or to bend it in the opposite direction from which it is intended to bend).

As an unwitting expert in this subject area (I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome; feel free to look it up!), I can confirm that jd2001wizard is completely correct. Because I knew what you meant I eventually got it, but not after trying the correct answer, "hyperflex". I'd ask that you'd change "bend" to "straighten" in the clue, but if not, would you at least accept the correct answer? (And it'd be best if the right answer would be the one displayed too, technically making "hyperextend" just an alternative answer. But since hyperextension is so much more common a health problem, wouldn't it just be nicer to change the clue instead? {Insert sweetly beseaching, eyelash-batting smile here.}

I didnt understand why hypermobile was not accepted at first, got hyperextend later. I most likely have ehlers danlos aswell. (definitely hypermobile and a lot of other symptoms related to joints and ligaments, plus I can get bruises from simply sitting on a chair or leaning against a table,)
