Would be cool if you could use those final letters to make a phrase or something along those lines! Try incorporating that into #3!

I love this, just goes to prove how insane English is, I mean the was we pronounce the shortened word and the word with the first letter are sometimes vastly different. Great quiz

Good quiz, only issue is that you can just type in every letter of the alphabet until you get it right if you don't know it. That's unfixable, but whatever

Agreed; I thought about trying "E" with "ROAD" :) Good quiz!

Couldn't figure out what to put before ROAD, and when I saw BROAD at the end, I thought, "Broad?? [Rhyming it with road] What the heck kind of word is broad?!......oHHHHHHH. Broad ['brahd']. Riiight."

Oh my god, I actually thought it was pronounced "brode" too until just this comment! I mean I got it, but I just thought I didn't know the word.

Not sure why this quiz isn't rated higher, it's very good! Maybe because it's tough for some people? If I can't think of the answer right away, I just run down the alphabet until I find something that sounds like a word. There's more than enough time for trial and error as long as you only have to do it for a couple of words.

Pretty tricky! Also puts it into perspective how random English can be, with how pronouncing the word can change COMPLETELY with the addition or subtraction of just one letter (laughter and slaughter especially got me there, took me a bit to figure it out)

Very true. I've always particularly liked how the word 'manslaughter' can be broken up into 'man's laughter'.

Twas nice, but I thought there was too much time. I ended up getting a perfect score since you can actually keep keying in, and then deleting letters, until one got through.
