******** RULES ********


Hello everyone Dancing


The rules of this game changed in 2014.

The words you choose as answers here must be words that can be found in English dictionaries (that includes proper nouns). English words can contain hyphens, apostrophes but no space.

The new word you're going to post must contain the first letter of the preceding word immediately followed by the last letter of the preceding word, in that order,

AND

the new word you're going to post must not start/end with either the first or the last letter of the preceding word.



Thank you.

Sorry but the new word must not start/end with b or n.

I'm turning your word into its plural form.

Although hyphens are allowed as per rules, I think we should not be using multiple words joined by hyphens. A hyphenated word which gets its entry in a standard dictionary is different.

Hello Srirr,

You are aware The Free Dictionary itself allows that word (just like other online dictionaries).
In the rules, it's about words from English dictionaries. TFD is one of them.
