It's sad, but I can only remember the name of Hamlet's castle by remembering the name of the brewery in Strange Brew.

I think the "epitaph" clue might throw most people, because they are *definitely* going to expect "eulogy" to be accepted – eulogy is way more used to describe a funeral oration than epitaph.

You would never carve a eulogy on a tombstone though.

No, but I still found it confusing. Once I had "eulogy" in my head, I couldn't get past it. Most sources I found say that an epitaph is written text...only saw one that included speaking.

Yes. A bit frustrating. I managed to try epigraph, eulogy and encomium before running out of time just as I was typing epitaph.

You wouldn't carve a eulogy on a tombstone, but you also wouldn't deliver an epitaph as an oration. Elegy might work for both, but I think eulogy and epitaph are each one or the other.

I always thought it was spelled "euphenism". It's good to learn the correct spelling, but could that be accepted as a type in, please?

If we're going to accept my father's pronunciations, then we also have to accept chimley, samwich, and Massatusetts on other quizzes. :)

These books are probably why I'm hooked on murder mysteries now, 40 years after 4th grade. LOL My kids loved them, too.

Got on the wrong path from the "with child" clue ... Tried typing "enceinte" - nice try, but no prize.
