Tuesday early posting......

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Country Families : One Thread

I am going to be gone tommmorow and am posting early for Tuesday: There is 23 words that end in "dous" (in English), can you name 7 of them? 7.66 would be 1/3 of them. Feel free to use your search engines.

Horrendous, stupendous, tremendous...why are those the only three I can think of? Hurry back, Mitch -- this one is going to drive me nuts!

I keep coming up with words like "odious" and "insidious"...

Since you gave permission to use the search engines, I did. I came up with a rather long list, but I only recognized hazardous and nonhazardous. There was also a blizzardous. The rest were not so common; maybe someone else would like to have a go at it?

I should have said that I recognized those two in addition to the ones already mentioned!:o)
