  • Methinks you made a spelling error. Though I am definitely looking up the last word since it's the first time I've ever seen it (unless it's just a weird British spelling contradicting the gold standard American version ;))

  • I found the last word's meaning with a quick google search. (Never really ever saw the base word used in such manner.) However, assuming my submission was correct and considering I got through the maze it should be, I believe there was still a minor typo.

    Well it's a minor typo though yeah, a couple of the words, being Halloween-themed, are not what you'd learn in an English class really. Kind of like learning the Vietnamese word for aglet (the plastic part at the end of a shoelace) which according to Google Translate is: miếng kim khí đầu dây giày. (I personally think that has to be a mistake.) So not common, but there.

    Full text is:

    Development of artifacts and symbols associated with Halloween formed over time. Jack-o'-lanterns are traditionally carried by guisers on All Hallows' Eve in order to frighten evil spirits. There is a popular Irish Christian folktale associated with the jack-o'-lantern, which in lore, is said to represent a "soul who has been denied entry into both heaven and hell"

    In Ireland and Scotland, the turnip has traditionally been carved during Halloween, but immigrants to North America used the native pumpkin, which is both much softer and much larger – making it easier to carve than a turnip.
    A Festive Season To All!!
  • Sir org, i don't get this. The first row of scrambled words goes to first row of blank spaces? Or the letters can be arranged to any rows?
    the first row is (AYICT) - it's only 5 but the blank should have 7 words in it.
    And also the last scrambled words has 14 while the last blank should have only 12 spaces including the 2 dash (-).
  • Quick queston, you said the answer would be a phrase, but is that overall or just each line is a phrase in and of itself. So for example if there was the case of three rows with the answers, She, Fast, Run would the answers have to be in the form of She Ran Fast or would just putting them together in any order work?

  • I get it now. Thank you sir! I've got to read the instructions more carefully from now on.

    @Kaleg Nar

    I think you should put them in order since the rows got their corresponding number of letters and also this is one of the instructions

    Can you help me put them back on their places?
