Could you accept synagog as spelling for synagogue? I was under the impression that synagog is an accepted spelling for synagogue and wikipedia agrees. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synagogue "A synagogue (from Koine Greek: συναγωγή transliterated synagogē, meaning "assembly"), sometimes spelt synagog, is a Jewish or Samaritan house of prayer"

Maybe also think about accepting hypodermic needle for syringe? I know the hypodermic needle is attached to a syringe upon injection, but both could technically be considered devices.

Maybe "tornado" or "twister" would be a better clue for cyclone? Technically typhoons and hurricanes are "tropical cyclones."

A tornado occurs on land, whereas hurricanes and such occur over tropical waters. A hurricane happens over the Atlantic Ocean, a cyclone happens over the Pacific Ocean, and a typhoon happens over the Indian Ocean. They are all names for the same type of storm, but a tornado or twister is a completely different phenomenon.

A few things - hurricanes occur over the Atlantic Ocean, yes, but typhoons occur over the Pacific Ocean, not Indian. Cyclones, on the other hand, can occur anywhere. A cyclone in the Atlantic might become a hurricane if it becomes strong enough, and a cyclone in the pacific might become a typhoon. But yeah, tornadoes are completely unrelated.

My grandparents always called a tornado a cyclone - they were born in the 1890s and I don't hear it used much these days for tornado, but the Merriam-Webster dictionary says, "Definition of cyclone for Students. 1 : a storm or system of winds that rotates about a center of low atmospheric pressure and that moves forward at a speed of 20 to 30 miles (30 to 50 kilometers) an hour and often brings heavy rain. 2 : tornado." I also read a "tall tale" as a child about Pecos Bill and the Cyclone and Bill lassoed and rode a tornado in the story. Tornado and cyclone were once used interchangeably.

Irrespective of whether it comes from the Indian or the Pacific ocean, the term 'cyclone' is used by the national weather service in Australia.

Iowa State University would tend to disagree. Not many typhoons or hurricanes in Iowa, yet they are the Cyclones? There are fairly frequent tornadoes though....
