Edit: Turns out, after doing some digging, the closest related english word is swath(e).
I would not have come up with that last one without some research, English isn't my first language so it wasn't one of the first things I thought about. (my initial thought was more; things meaning to separate. Many words having to do with splitting and cutting ultimately come from the same root. Though usually they have an sk sound at the beginning (though in English not always)
Also thought of dividing in two, zweiteilen/zweiteilung (German), tweedeling (Dutch), the first part sounding close. But obviously the wrong route :)
well I was at 101, I think in the 2nd half hour maybe I would ve gotten 20 more. Gonna take a break mow and try later without looking at the answers (will take a peek at the average)
And when I drop the s I get all sorts of tools, mainly hot air guns (to strip paint) but also electric saws (mainly for your hedges)
It is hard to imagine someone not being familiar AT ALL with english words, but just try; "The United states of America" would seem like a mouthfull wouldnt it?
WTH? a country made up of 5 words?? couldnt they just pick one? (Yes I know, UK has more, but many people, outside of jetpunk I mean, wouldn't know or be able to reproduce the entire thing)
It is all a matter of perspective :)
If you have trouble imagining, here is some help, using different letters "Yjr Imoyrf dysyrd pg Snrtovs" (All letters moved one position sideways on the keyboard)
