If a letter was different, the scrund would have probably affected me.

"The scrund would have probably affected me' as in:
You would have formed a scrund (if the letter was different)?
You already had the scrund, but it would only have had any consequences if the letter was different?

Is the letter part of a word? Would changing the letter form a different, but still real word?

"The scrund would have probably affected me' as in:
You would have formed a scrund (if the letter was different)?
You already had the scrund, but it would only have had any consequences if the letter was different? This one, most likely. (Although if the letter was different, I may not have had the scrund at all.)

Is the letter part of a word? No Would changing the letter form a different, but still real word? So no

Is the relevant letter [LTPF list of letters from A to Z]?

If the letter was different -- if it were replaced with another letter in the alphabet? Or perhaps if the same letter were written (or printed, for that matter) differently?

While English spelling rules require certain letters to always follow/proceed another, those same letters to not appear in the right order in the alphabet? (If this is right, I have two such rules that meet the criteria.)

So, maybe I was the only one who wondered why the alphabet didn't go like this: ...pqurst...!

Are any grammar rules relevant?

Did the scrund not affect you because no one ever found out about it?

Well, since nobody else has gone through this, I might as well...
Is the letter E? G? H? I? J? K? L? M? O? P? Q? T? V? W? X? Y? Z?

You said that the scrund would only have had consequences if the letter was different. Does this mean that you would have done something that would have caused something else to happen if the letter was different?

Would the scrund have affected you in a positive way? A negative way?

Would it have affected you because a word would have sounded different? Because it would have been spelled differently?

Are maths relevant? Does Y represent something? Was it written somewhere? If so, did you read it? Would the scrund have affected you if Y was any other letter? A specific one? A certain subset of the alphabet?

Are maths relevant? No, but... Does Y represent something? I do believe that is the purpose of letters, yes. Was it written somewhere? No If so, did you read it? - Would the scrund have affected you if Y was any other letter? For the purpose this letter serves, I don't think there are very many other possibilities. A specific one? Yes A certain subset of the alphabet?

D Gordon:

Is the fact that Y is a vowel relevant? No That it's a consonant? No Is the pronunciation of Y relevant? Nope. Perhaps because it is not being used as part of a word, it could just as easily be anything else used to stand for the relevant situation. It could just as easily be w, 7, or "It is the case that...[blah blah blah]" It is simply that what this stands for is most easily signified in a simple way by the letter "Y".

*************RECAP*and*HINT***************
1. "The letter" is Y.
2. I had a certain misconception which remained undetected and uncorrected for a period of time.
3. If "the letter" were not Y, but, rather, a different letter, the subject of the misconception may have arisen, and I may have detected the misconception.

So in other words, if you were female, this scrund would have had some kind of consequence for you? But you already had this scrund? Is the scrund related to something that only people of the female persuasion do? know? have? Or that they do/know/have more often than the male-types?

Well THAT's a promising answer... Let's rephrase and see if that helps...

Is the scrund related to something that women? or girls? do? know? have? more often? differently? than men? or boys? Wow that's a lot of question marks?

Anything to do with clothing? Hair? Children? Feminism?

Would I (being female) have this passive scrund? unless it were corrected by someone who had been enlightened as you were? Or would I instinctively know the truth about what you took for granted?

Which is sadly no longer the Hooked on Phonics number :-(
And is that supposed to be a hint or are you just waiting for me to sing along? :-)


Anything to do with mistaking non-pregnant women for pregnant ones?

Is it about the relevant clothes in general (i.e. just the fact that they exist at all)? or how they're designed? made? marketed? sold? worn? altered? disposed of?

Does it have to do with a specific material?style? article? of clothing?

Does it have to do with dresses? pants? shirts? skirts? undergarments? outerwear? hats? footwear? accessories? nightwear?

Now why would I do something so silly as pay attention to the puzzle statement, when it so obviously has absolutely nothing to do with the answer...</sheepish> ... ... Well, anyway, I guess my random out-of-left-field guess was not so successful.

So is there something else alphabetical that could help me were my head not so thick and I could actually unravel the hint? Does the scrund have to do with T-shirts? G-strings? I don't think it's going to end up being either, but they're the only undergarments I can think of that have to do with the alphabet, so I guess it's at least worth asking.

Anybody else have any ideas? 'cause I seem to be floundering a bit here...

Now why would I do something so silly as pay attention to the puzzle statement, when it so obviously has absolutely nothing to do with the answer...</sheepish> ... ... Well, anyway, I guess my random out-of-left-field guess was not so successful. Remember, I told you that this scrund was very random and that I was not intending on having anyone try to figure out what it was.

So is there something else alphabetical that could help me were my head not so thick and I could actually unravel the hint? Yes. Something to do with female undergarments and certain letters of the alphabet, such as A, B, and C. Does the scrund have to do with T-shirts? Nope G-strings? Nah I don't think it's going to end up being either, but they're the only undergarments I can think of that have to do with the alphabet, so I guess it's at least worth asking. She who asks a "silly" question appears a fool for a minute, but she who does not ask is a fool forever.

Anybody else have any ideas? 'cause I seem to be floundering a bit here... I'm sure if one knows me well enough, he or she will be able to figure out what the scrund relates to. However, it may be a tad bit more difficult to determine the exact misconception I, and, probably, some other people, had about it.

Haenlomal:
Are cup size of bras relevant to this puzzle? Not very much to my original puzzle (which has already been solved), but very much so to the scrund upon which it is based, which seems to be what Kalira is trying to determine now.

D Gordon:
That they went through the whole alphabet? Nope. However, I'm sure that you know me well enough now that you could quickly skim some sort of internet reference for information regarding scrunds people might have about Brassiere measurements. Or, failing that, you might just do a search in a popular search engine with a query vaguely similar to the following:

"brassiere measurements" "common misconception"

In any case, the true lateral puzzle was solved quite some time ago, and I am just trying to decide which puzzle in my queue I should unleash next...

Well, in order to speed along your new puzzling, is the scrund related to the fact that cup sizes in bras are not consistent across band sizes, but are in fact relative to the band size (i.e. a D-cup in a 36 does not hold the same volume as a D-cup in a 40)?

If a letter was different, and my genetic material was XX instead of XY, the scrund would have probably affected me. But, it seems, the letters are actually different. But different letters are different with different numbers. And so on. What?
