Homonyms
Cryptic crossword type clues
FITB
Quotes and/or statements with a relevant word blanked out
ROUND 1
1
One theory, (by Stephen Fry), for the origin of this word : “It probably
derives from the first question in the old grammar school Latin oral,
meaning 'Who are you?'“
Which is this word, that most probably did not originate in 1791… ?
(hint: think of Latin for “what”, “when”, “where to”…)
QUIZ
“Qui se?”
2
Aglaea ("Splendor"), Euphrosyne ("Mirth"), and Thalia
("Good Cheer"): Minor Greek goddesses of charm,
beauty, nature, human creativity, and fertility.
The common Greek word for the above gave rise to the
word that meant "special spiritual gift or power divinely
conferred, talent from God"
However, the present (non-spiritual) meaning for this
word has been given by Max Weber.
(Hint: you’ll get it, if you’ve got It)
CHARISMA
3
From Middle English (circa 13th, 14th century), this
word meant "narrow window, slit-opening in a wall" for
protection of archers while shooting, or for light and
ventilation.
The only openings in a seemingly impenetrable wall
were these slits, which only a (clever) child or small
adult could squeeze through…
Hint: term for this instrument,
often used by surgeons
LOOPHOLE
4
John Milton, in his epic poem Paradise Lost (1667), coined this word as
the name of the palace built in the middle of Hell, "the high capital of
Satan and all his peers“.
The word is derived from the Greek for “all” and Latin for “evil
spirit”…
PANDEMONIUM
5
1) Earth
2) Water
3) Fire
4) Air
5) (Ether): as per Aristotle, a fifth element, considered to be of
exceptional superior quality to the other four basic elements.
Identify the word derived from Latin for the words in bold font
QUINTESSENCE / QUINTESSENTIAL
ROUND 2
6
Family members:
Rutaceae and Cucurbitaceae
LEMONS - MELONS
7
Balanced - items of furniture
STABLE - TABLES
8
Far away - is that a Fireball?
REMOTE - METEOR
9
Scarcity, of love - leads to this?
DEARTH - HATRED
10
Cry - for the lady who follows Coetzee,
Carey and Farrell
LAMENT - MANTEL
ROUND 3
The answers are homonyms – words with multiple /
distinct meanings. They have successively increasing
number of alphabets (4 to 8).
The clues are in the form of cryptic statements. Each clue
contains words that indicate the meanings of the answer
(word).
Please do not try to read meaning into the statement as
a whole; rather try to figure out the synonyms of the
embedded key words which will lead to the answer.
11
May be companion for a nut, but,
boy, can he run?!
BOLT
12
The animals are in it to gain weight
and currency
POUND
13
Crush this vegetable to get some
fruit juice!
SQUASH
14
A modern stream that is shocking…
CURRENT
15
Use this complete set of words to
punish.
SENTENCE
ROUND 4
16
As a response to a comment about a certain actress being a staple on
Netflix India, they came out with a spoof video titled
“Omnipresent”…
Its caption very appropriately read: Whatever the role, X(first name)
___ hai
FITB with an English word?
RADHIKA APT HAI
17
Mark Twain’s sarcastic comment about German words such as these:
 Freundschaftsbezeigungen
 Dilettantenaufdringlichkeiten
 Stadtverordnetenversammlungen
“Some German words are so long that they have a ___________.”
The above word was used here, to suggest that the German words
were almost three-dimensional objects (on a two-dimensional
surface)…
PERSPECTIVE
18
In 1986, the British Medical Association published a study of the
tobacco industry's marketing tactics worldwide.
It was titled: "Great ______________”. This was a wordplay
combining a work of literature and one of the effects of smoking, on
the lungs.
EXPECTORATION/S
19
6th October (yesterday) was the birthday of two cricketing greats, Richie
Benaud and Tony Greig. Cricinfo has come up with a compilation of their
famous commentary lines…
So here’s the inimitable Benaud, on air, during Ian Botham's rampaging assault
in the 1981 Headingly (the “Botham”) Test: “Don't bother looking for that, let
alone chasing it. That's gone straight into the X stall and out again.”
The expression later became eponymous with one of ESPNcricinfo's blogs.
Which not-so-short sweet word?
CONFECTIONERY
20
Justice A. K. Sikri authored the majority opinion in the recent verdict on
validity of Aadhar, referring to the latter as a “document of
empowerment” and an “unparalleled” identity proof.
He wrote: “It is better to be X than the best. The best makes you
number one, but X makes you ___ ____ one”.
X, coincidentally, appears in the related agency name.
UNIQUE
RESULTS
FIRST – Anand Rajagopal (90 pts)
SECOND – Yeldho Shem Mathew (70 pts)
THIRD – Nikhil Sundar M (60 pts)
