It's not really a rhyme where I live. Faint and Feint might be closer possibilities.

Not really. Those would rhyme with "Spaint" instead of "Spain".

How about fain and skein?

I have included skein. Fain is archaic.

Yes, I thought of "fain" before reading the conditions.

I didn't get the memo. I still use fain from time to time. Verily! Forsooth!

But in all seriousness, "twain" is just is archaic as "fain". You should either accept both or accept neither.

Sep 18, 2017
You are probably right, but Twain lives on colloquially (at least in the United States) because of Mark Twain and the story of how he came up with his pen name. If it weren't for that, nobody would know the meaning of twain.

"... the twain shall never meet"? Lots of people know that. (Is that how Mark Tain picked his name??)

I've always heard that he got his pen name from his experience on steamboats on the Mississippi when he was younger (hence all his writing about it). They would call out "Mark twain!" to let the captain and all know when the water was two fathoms deep.

I'm no expert but isn't dane also a "normal" noun when referring to someone from Denmark?

Sep 16, 2017
No, demonyms are just as proper as the place name from which they derive; e.g. Danes are from Denmark. Texans are from Texas.

Dec 20, 2017
I thought so too, but I was thinking more like Marmaduke. A Great Dane is a type of animal, right? But, my spell check tells me it is capitalized, so maybe all the Marmadukes of the world are special in that way.

Dec 20, 2017
Yes, for the same reason. Great Dane = Great Dog of Denmark, although it's not from there. Originally called a German Mastiff until about World War I....name changed in English due to wartime tensions.

Or, more positively (because it's nearly Christmas), that 'pain' is right there in the question? I'd be worried if I'd missed it.

Because it doesn't rhyme with Spain. It's pronunciation is closer to the English word "plan" but not finished with the tongue against the hard palate.

"Obtain" is 2 syllables--this quiz is for one-syllable words. "Twain" is a non-proper noun meaning "two" (which is where Samuel Clemens got his pen name from), but it is arguably archaic, so it may or may not belong on this quiz. (If you google it, the definition that comes up says "archaic term for two".)

id say Dane is an adjective not a proper noun as its not a person a place (there is no place called Dane) or a thing but it describes someones nationality and therefore should be llowed

blain (as in chilblain), bane, ain (Scots for own, but in everyday use), wain (child in Scots, again in everyday use). There are quite a few 'archaic' words that rhyme, but if you allow twain, my feeling is that there are others that should be allowed. Maybe you should exclude Scots words and slang. Always difficult one exclusions are applied because there are often good arguments for exceptions.

Sappa, you'd be right if this referred to the river. However, as no nouns are accepted, this is obviously talking about the fishing net pronounced [seɪn]. (The river is pronounced [sɛːn].)

Cant believe I missed mane and pane, Also missed vein and sprain, and skein of which I have never heard. But I did get deign of which I hadnt heard before either. Missing 5 not a bad score I guess, when the average missed 15. Eventhough halfway through I had many gaps still and felt dumb and couldnt think of anything for a while, little black out just staring
