Would it be correct to say that a question is a strike if a word in it has a property x?

Rabrab

Does anybody care? Strike two!
IYQYQR? STRIIKEE THREEE!!!! And you are out!

Qa? Please type out the full word next time.
Qw? What does this mean?
Qs? Is this a code?

Just to let you know: I had to do some subjective intepretation to answer some of these questions.

Would it be correct to say that a question is a strike if a word in it has a property x? I don't think questions of this nature are generally permitted in rulebreakers (unless, of course, you're asking it as a rulebreaker question itself). You can try asking this question as a proper rulebreaker question and see what happens.

I've also decided to add an extra condition in order to avoid more subjective intepretation on my part: No more nonsense words. So the words you use in your question/statement has to make sense or be found in an English dictionary. Hopefully this will make things easier. :)

aardvark? Strike one!
FlOcCiNaUcInIhIlIpIlIfIcAtIoN? Strike two! (Yes, it is a real word...) Amazing way to describe worthlessness.
Floccinaucinihilipilification? Strike three! Bye bye for a third time!

:( I'd love to be able to spoil, but I feel like I'm smashing my head against a wall here... Still awaiting the glimmer of light... Ah...by asking so many non-strike questions, I thought that you had got it. Maybe a few more will give you that glimmer of light you desire.

noun? A part of speech
verbing? Strike one!
a verbing noun? Strike two!

HINT in white text: The answers I have been giving also follow the same rules as the questions for the game.

I will stop the one day sit-out rule from now on to speed this up. But the three posting rule still stands.

Hmm.... It would seem to me that any question which contains a word with more than one syllable is a strike... Is that correct?

*************** SPOILER ****************

The rule is that all questions and answers must consist of one syllable words.

Thanks to all who played, and a special mention to Ian (and others who e-mailed the correct solution) for finally putting this rulebreaker out of its misery! :)
