While both Colosseum and Coliseum are used for that building in Rome, shouldn't there still be a consensus across JetPunk quizzes? The Satellite Images - Europe quiz gives "Coliseum" as an answer. - Yes, both are acceptable type-ins in both quizzes, but consistency?

Both spellings are correct though, so if a certain spelling is not allowed then that would mean a correct answer does not work, and that wouldn't be good.

I guess the most similar one to the Italian correct spelling should be considered more appropriate, shouldn't it? Italian: Colosseo Exactly the way we spell Notre Dame de Paris as it is in French

could you accept "adria" for "adriatic" because in my language it is adrian so it would be easier

The next word begins with c - this is a word chain - so Adria doesn't work.

Unless I'm missing something, 'Common subject in Roman education' is a bit vague isn't it? Tried philosophy, maths, Latin, etc

...but this is a word chain quiz and none of them start with 'r' and end with 'c' which is needed to fit the quiz. It should be fairly obvious that they aren't correct.

Opera is a musical genre, not a style. Stylistically, Verdi and Puccini would both be generally described as Romantic (and there are plenty of non-Romantic operas).
