I thought it was cremation but I don't think I spelled it right. Then I realized it was cremate.

It should be cremation. You don't have cremate remains, you have cremation remains.

I thought it was cremation too, but then I figured I must be wrong. Cremate remains makes no grammatical sense.

But the shortened singular word is obviously a noun, so the first word is a descriptor.

that "yi" in the Tanganyika spelling is too difficult, in other cases you give much more help

I admit, after having golf and thinking of what the first part could be and not being able to think of anything I tried frodo before I thought of frisbee.

I am sure frodo golf ( hobbit golf) is a thinkg somewhere somehow

Never heard of "Ebonics, Frolf, Crunk, or Jorts." Are they Americanisms that haven't made it across the Pond, or have I just missed out on them? I didn't know TomKat either, but the picture gave it away.

If you type in camera followed by recorder you get "era recorder" (which might be a yearbook?) left in the answer box, because it just accepts can as a word. Continuing along the quiz, you get a backed up mess and have to go all over again because camcorder is accepted as an instrument which records the revolutions of a valve bumper. The same with bro being accepted as the original word for the shortened version of itself.

Got most, never heard of crunk or jorts (got the shorts part though). Knew the zanzibar part of tanzania, but not the other one.
