Just a wild guess!!!!!!!
If something is made of the same fabric as jeans you say denim, like a denim jacket, not a jean jacket.
Though I agree it would be nicer if none of them had the full name in it (and no celebrity couples!!)
And I find it funny that not a lot of people knew toonie
Edit:then again, I dont know any cyborgs either..
still managed to guess everything but professional, amateur and two.
Surprised at how extremely low web is !!! It is not like it is and obscure word this day and age... Then again, maybe that is the problem?? Kids so young, not realising it is a compound word. I think it is easier when you were around when the word first appeared.
Then again Only now I realise it is the only one that misses letters in front (not that it matters if you actually know the word, that it is weblog) I guess maybe the ones that (astonishingly) didnt know, couldnt guess it either because they were looking for words starting blo- ?
I guessed pluot on a fluke by randomly thinking of things starting plu, when plum unexpectedly was right it was not a bigjump to apricot.
While there appears to be no strict lexical definition preventing "cyborg" to be considered a portmanteau, it most certainly is a syllabic abbreviation. If the two are to be categorized as separate terms, a syllabic abbreviation takes precedence.
It may possibly belong to both categories, but it is worth noting the tendency of a portmanteau to contain the beginning of one word and the whole or the end of the other, not just the first syllables of both as syllabic abbreviations do (interpol, gestapo, comintern, pasokon).
