1 - the closest one is "painting" and perhaps "van Gogh" -- in general, to what does the image pertain?

2 - "run" and "heartbeat" -- a running heartbeat is what?

3 - it's a painting of Queen Elizabeth, known for her long what?

1 - "art" is correct!

2 - think of a fast pulse, due to exercise or excitement

3 - yes, but a homophone

:)


1 - jump, ecstatic, victory, excited, happy: no. The word to guess is a superlative, related to 'victory' in the context of that photograph;

2 - contort, relax, twist, dog, couch: no. The word to guess is a noun. Imagine your dog doing that while looking at you: it is a *?*

3 - hypnotic, building, zoom: no. The word to guess is an adverb. Look at the gif and of the adverbs you can relate to it;

4 - jukebox, press, button: no. The word to guess is a past participle. You press the button of the jukebox then what?

1 - "countries" is closest. Correct word is an adjective.

2 - whose "painting"?

3 - "people" is closest. Lots of people make up the correct word.

4 - no, but "grass" typically makes up the correct word.

5 - what sort of dog? The harness gives a clue.

6 - it is a symbol, yes, but of what? This is a stylized symbol with an embedded letter.

7 - the apple pie with stars is meant to signify something. Correct word is an adjective.

8 - iguanas are what sort of animal?

9 - frogs are what sort of animal?

1 - Almost, but not quite...each individual flag is what kind of symbol that represents its country?

2 - This painter was famous for his drawings of birds.

3 - No. Think of a group of persons engaged in a common activity or interest.

4 - No. The correct word is one syllable.

5 - The dog is indeed a golden retriever, but what has it been trained to be?

6 - "N" is the right letter, but what does it stand for? Notice that the symbol is pointing somewhere.

7 - "American" is correct!

8 - Yes!

9 - Yes, "amphibians" is correct!

That's correct, so congratulations, Anton!

---
Here are some guesses for the pictures:

1 - leopard, skin, tattoo, swimmer

2 - no lights, nonillumination, headlight

3 - hubbub, conversation, talking

4 - terrarium, soil

5 - sheep, ewe, lamb, grass, graze



At this point, there doesn't seem to be any kind of coherent association for a title, but we'll see...

Thank you ^^


1 - leopard, skin, tattoo, swimmer: no. It's about the skin and the tattoos. Adverb.

2 - no lights, nonillumination, headlight: no. Look at that car, think about an adjective then about the negative form of it.

3 - conversation, talking: good hints. Adjective.

4 - terrarium, soil: it's about something else in the terrarium.

5 - grass: very close!

Haven't forgotten this thread, here are more guesses:


1 - spotted, mottled, dappled

2 - slow, nonflashy, unsporty (it looks like a sports car)

3 - loud, noisy

4 - growth, vegetation, bugs, worms

5 - turf, lawn, green

:)


1 - spotted, mottled, dappled: no but... The word to guess is an adverb. Look at his whole skin: it's *?* s spotted;

2 - slow, nonflashy, unsporty (it looks like a sports car): no. That car is covered with expensive imitations of diamonds;

3 - loud, noisy: no. The word to guess is an adjective, about different people interacting;

4 - vegetation, bugs, worms: what are they, more generally?;

5 - green: yes!

More guessing:

1 - entirely, completely, wholly

2 - nonartificial, inexpensive

3 - communicative, interactive, collaborative

4 - life, organisms

1 - You're close: he's not "entirely, completely, wholly" tattooed: he's *?* tattooed (adverb);

2 - nonartificial, inexpensive: no. Imagine you see an expensive great sparkling car covered with Swarovski diamonds and you may think: "Wow, this car looks *?*!" Then find the negative form of that adjective, that doesn't start with 'non-' or 'in-';

3 - communicative, interactive, collaborative: all three are good hints. The word to guess sort of summarizes them all
(2 syllables);

4 - life: yes!

I feel like I should already know this, but here are more guesses:

1 - partially, virtually, topically

2 - cheap, dull

3 - synergistic? synthetic?

:)

1 - If 95% of his skin is tattooed, he's *?* tattooed (not quite tattooed). (adverb)

2 - cheap, dull: well, it's close in meaning. The word to guess is made of 'un' + an adjective that means "sensational, terrific, fantastic" and that starts with an 'f';

3 - synergistic? synthetic? No. The adjective to guess is common and means "related to society".
