OK wordsmyths, here's the 14th instalment, WITH LIMITED CLUES:
I'm looking for a 9-letter English word (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) which matches the following
The letters 9, 1, 6 & 7 (in that order) spell a UNIT of measure.
The letters 8, 2, 3, 4 & 5 (in that order) spell a type of FISH.
The correct word (and ALL sub-clue words) are found in Webster's Dictionary - 10th Edition.
9, 1, 6 & 7 (in that order) spell a UNIT of measure.
The letters 8, 2, 3, 4 & 5 (in that order) spell a type of FISH
Units of measure: yard, gram, pint, mile, inch, foot
trout, snook, bream, shark, perch,
Keep at it team, keep at it!
Is it PENCHANTS?
The fish is Tench (carp)
The unit of measure - span?
A fanfare please for Raggedy......
PENCHANTS is the correct answer.
FISH = TENCH
UNIT = SPAN
