    Please excuse this long preamble. The point of this game is to weld combinations as another way of spelling/saying words. For instance, for the word "foreign" you might have far and in. I want you to put a pair of already existing words together in order to forge approximations of familiar words. But the spelling has to be different in both parts from the original word. I would like you to do only two syllable words.

    Please do not use proper nouns for the original words or the pairings.

    In the pairings --each must be legitimate words --not just sounds.

    Now their might be several different ways of approximating the sound of the original word. As I said, I want you to do only two syllable orginal words. Some words may have three syllables but many may pronounce them with just two.

    I hope I have covered enough of the ground rules. Here's trusting I don't have to add any more rules.

    The following are some I came up with. They are not in alphabetical order as you will see.

    Cannot : kin not
    Cement : see meant
    Believe : bee leave
    Battle : bad ill
    Mystery : miss tree
    Decade : deck aid
    People : pee pull
    Before : bee four
    Token : toe kin

    Barely : bear lee
    Prior : pry er
    Auto : aw toe Or Ought oh
    Soften : saw fin
    Average : air fridge
    Certain : sir tin
    Somewhat : sum watt
    Halfway : have whey
    Pocket : pa kit

    Okay, let's see how you'll do with this exercise.

    ITL, you did not follow my rules which I clearly spelled out in my OP. I had specifically said to use only two syllables. In seven of your items you used three syllables.

    In one place you did not use a legitimate word :ain.

    And in another case you didn't even try.

    Sorry. Your score is 40%. You have failed.

    You must play bu the rules ITL. You have received credit for only two out of your seven examples.

    Your score is 28.571%. You have slipped from your prior score of 40%. Come on. I know you can do better. Just pay attention.
