Not sure if you did any research on this (I didn't) but isn't Biopic a shortened version of biographic?

Aug 22, 2013
Nope, it's a contraction of 'biographical {motion} picture'.

How about frantic for anxious or nervous and how about peptic for stomach related?

level 76
Apr 24, 2017
I tried frantic, too. Google's definition of frantic: "Wild or distraught with fear, anxiety, or other emotion." Seems to me it fits better than neurosis: "Mild mental illness...involving symptoms of stress (depression, anxiety, obsessive behavior, hypochondria)..."

definitely agree with peptic. Tried panic for anxious or nervous, although the nervous bit may take that one out! :)

atoms are far too small to be seen under a microscope and semantically micro implies a scale at least 3 orders of magnitude too large. nanoscopic maybe but that is not yet a word...

Would "caustic" be to general a meaning for the opposite of acidic?
+1
level 67
Oct 18, 2018
Yes, because "caustic" just means "capable of burning, corroding, or destroying living tissue." Both bases and acids can be caustic if they're strong enough.

Actually, the dictionary definition of ophthalmic is "of or pertaining to the eye". So ophthalmic certainly should be acceptable.

That's the first one I tried and it fits the definition.

can tantric be used in addition to erotic?
+1
level 71
Sep 8, 2016
Regardless of what Sting and pop sex articles might tell you, "tantric" is definitely, may I repeat DEFINITELY not synonymous with anything sexual. Ask your neighborhood Hindu or Buddhist (particularly a *tantrika*, of which I am one), or just take a gander at the Wikipedia entry; it's good.

Don't know about anyone else, but "False limb" misled me, I kept thinking of limbs that don't exist. Maybe "Artificial limb" would be better?

These kinds of quizzes usually fill in the lats letters (here, -ic) for you, so you don't have to type them. So... what's up with this one? (Those precious extra tenths of a second might come in handy someday...)

Pornographic just means sexually explicit and refers almost exclusively to visual media. Just because something is pornographic doesn't mean it's erotic--it might turn some people on but a lot of people are offended by it. And erotic literature isn't pornographic because there's no visual component.
