This is a camouflaged rulebreaker, in that it's a rulebreaker passed off as a normal puzzle. Ask questions like you might ask for a normal puzzle, but don't expect normal answers. The goal is to figure out the rule.

This is also a CA rulebreaker, by the way, but if you ask complete questions that shouldn't come into play.

A CA rulebreaker means the answer sometimes can't be given, as the rule won't allow it...so the only possible answer is "CA", "can't answer".

Are all the men and women merely players? no

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

--Macbeth, Act V, Scene V


That's not relevant; I just had the urge to quote it for some reason.

Are certain words Yes? Others No? Others CA?

Does Yes have priority over No have priority over CA? This is all correct. The rule is of the form:

-if any words can be answered Yes, answer Yes;
-otherwise, if any can be answered No, answer No;
-otherwise, CA.

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun?
Coral is far more red than her lips' red?
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun?
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head?
I have seen roses damask, red and white?
But no such roses see I in her cheeks?
And in some perfumes is there more delight?
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks?
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know?
That music hath a far more pleasing sound?
I grant I never saw a goddess go?
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground?
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare?
As any she belied with false compare?
–William Shakespeare, Sonnet 130

[man, this is a tough rule...] order is not relevant, except for the fact that if the words form a coherent sentence, each word will be assessed based on how it is used in the sentence; mostly, you can just focus on individual words

Ununtrium?
Ununquadium?
Ununpentium?

All of the above is the entire periodic table except that ennennennium is the hypothetical generic name for element 999 which is not synthesized

Oh say can you see by the dawn's early light what so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming, whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fights o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave, o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore dimly seen, through the mist of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, what is that in the breeze o'er the towering steep, as it fitfully blows, half conceals half discloses?

To quote a Jasper Fforde book, "I'm working on a system that hides [plot]holes by highlighting them to the reader, that just says, 'Ho! I'm a hole, don't think about it!' but it's a little cutting-edge." For more information, go here.
And now, though I'm horrid at these things, I'll at least ask some questions so you who are better at them can have some more to work with.

Maybe at this point it would be best to try to figure out a connection between all of the words that are Yes. Compiling a list might help you.

Does the "depending on your POV" comment mean that it depends on the *meaning* of the word, or the *pronunciation*? it depends on the meaning, as implied by the pronunciation (it only works if pronounced "leed" and means "initial/most important," not "led" as in "a poisonous, heavy metal")

If you meant for me to answer that honestly instead of using the rule, then no, Noel already guessed this a few posts back. The word that caused the question to be answered Yes was "used," by the way.

Ok, now I'll guess all the opposites of the yes words and see what happens

Nonsingle?
Dead?
All?
Outside? Ok, not quite the opposite of area, but it's the best I've got
White?
Warm? Uncool? Asking for cool as in temperature and as in popular. Would cool be yes for both meanings?
light?
nonelephantine? best I've got
male?
enslaved?
bad?
five? Ok, not quite the opposite of four
sad?
she?
miserable?
normal?
Follow?
female
calm?
less?
young?
displeasing?
irrelevant?
unreliable?
junior?
sun?
he?
none?
quiet?
unspoken?
wild?
pretty?
unverifiable?
normal?

And some synonyms

One?
living?
space?
cold? popular?
womanly? Feminine?
Liberated?
Nice? Awesome?
Cuatro? Quad?
Jubilant? Joyous? Felicitous?
Manly? Masculine?
weird? Bizarre? Strange? Alien?
herd? direct?
dramatic? Exaggerating? Hyperbolizing?

Nonsingle? no
Dead? no
All? no
Outside? no
White? no
Warm? no Uncool? no Asking for cool as in temperature and as in popular. Would cool be yes for both meanings? "cool" as in "not warm" would be a "no," "cool" as in "popular" would be a "yes" ("popular" itself I'm not so sure about)
light? no
nonelephantine? no
male? yes
enslaved? no
bad? no
five? no -- no other number spelled out is a Yes AFAIK
sad? yes
she? yes
miserable? no
normal? yes
Follow? CA -- the proper opposite was "following," which is a Yes here, but would be a No if you asked it instead of "follow"
female? yes
calm? yes
less? no
young? no
displeasing? no
irrelevant? no
unreliable? no
junior? no
sun? no
he? yes
none? no
quiet? yes, but this may mislead -- in fact I'm reconsidering my saying yes to "sound"
unspoken? no
wild? no
pretty? no
unverifiable? no
normal? yes

One? no
living? yes
space? yes
cold? no popular? yes, I think
womanly? yes Feminine? yes
Liberated? no, and I can't remember why I said Yes to "free" earlier -- I can justify it, though, and this is still a No
Nice? yes Awesome? no
Cuatro? no Quad? yes, and this should be a BIG HINT
Jubilant? yes Joyous? yes Felicitous? yes
Manly? yes Masculine? yes
weird? yes Bizarre? yes Strange? no Alien? yes, I think
herd? no direct? yes
dramatic? yes Exaggerating? no Hyperbolizing? yes, I think
Greater? no
Elderly? yes Ancient? no, at least I think not -- depends on your POV
Pleasureful? yes
Trusty? yes Trustworthy? yes
Noise? yes
Contained? yes Controlled? yes
Repulsive? yes Pitiful? no
True? I really can't answer this, but at the same time this isn't a CA; this is another hint
Loco? yes Crazy? no Insane? no

Wait... You said "no" to "Whirligig?". But that's a name, not a word. I beg to differ ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whirligig

Also: Since this is a hard puzzle, any following questions may not be answered with a straight Yes or No; I might say e.g. "not in this context" or "sometimes," etc. in order to give you more of a hint.

Can they all refer to numbers? I'm not sure what you're asking here. Following the rule (no italics?), this sentence is a "no." There are "yes" words that don't refer to numbers, but rather to something else.

Words that refer to something abstract? Generally yes, though there may be exceptions I can't think of right now. It's something else.

Words that have multiple meanings? Multiple spellings? Multiple pronunciations?

Wait, why is Palladium a no but the other three elements aren't?

Autological?
Homological?
Heterological?
Homosexual?
Heterosexual?
Bisexual?

Words that have multiple meanings? Multiple spellings? Multiple pronunciations? no to all

Wait, why is Palladium a no but the other three elements aren't? they are all No, but I was too lazy -- everything from the "..." to Palladium is a No; sorry I didn't make that clear enough


Autological? yes or no
Homological? yes or no
Heterological? I can't answer this question, yet it isn't really a CA
Homosexual? no
Heterosexual? no
Bisexual? no
Lesbian? no
Lebanese? no

It seems from your first three that you might know the answer -- do you want to $poil and put this one finally to rest? Or was it by mere chance that you stumbled upon an extremely useful hint?

Is it words which describe themselves? I just had a guess, I wasn't really sure. But your answers to those three proved I was right.

And if so...
Black?
blue?
Bold
Italicized

I just want to see if asking in different colors and styles will make a difference. Even though it's over.

Ah, clever!

Just to throw a couple more out there:


Multisyllabic?
Four?
Fifth?
Seventh?
Underlined?

Well, I see no need to answer your other questions (they're all Yes) so:

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

Finally!

The rule is as follows:

-Articles and any other words besides nouns, adjectives, and pronouns are all CA.
-Otherwise, words will be answered Yes if they describe themselves (autological) and No if they do not (heterological).
-Phrases and sentences are answered Yes if any word would be a Yes, otherwise No if any word would be a No, otherwise CA (if all words are CA).

The title and puzzle statement refer to the Grelling-Nelson paradox, formulated by Kurt Grelling and Leonard Nelson (Kurt and Leonard). The paradox is whether "heterological" is autological or heterological, or equivalently what it should be answered as according to my rule.

Also, HINT for "Silly claim": You might want to check out "Silly claim." It'll probably be close to being solved once you get the hint.

Higgledy piggledy,
"Heterological":
Self-categorical?
I cannot say.
This, paradoxically,
Unorthodoxically,
Boggles my mind for much
More than a day.


Three hexasyllabic words - is that a record?
