Can't answer it at the moment because I realized I got the rule wrong and I can't answer this specific question before I go over all questions that are affected and correct their answers. I don't have the time tonight, but I'll do it tomorrow.

BLOOPER

As I said earlier, some questions haven't been answered correctly. Here are the (hopefully) correct answers. This should also give you a HINT to the rule.


Why is the gun killing people? The four folds of skin at the entry of a woman's vagina.
Do you like llamas? The four folds of skin at the entry of a woman's vagina.
Please don't kill me? The four folds of skin at the entry of a woman's vagina.
What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow? A room or building used for scientific research, experiments, testing, etc.

Yes, the vagina thing wasn't planned, but a rule is a rule and I gotta stick to it =D

I can't really post a recap because no questions about the rule have been asked so far, but I recommend having a look at the CA questions as well as the BLOOPER right above your post.


Rosemary, that's for remembrance. Pray you, love, remember? A competition between people, animals, vehicles etc. to see which one is faster or fastest.
To be, or not to be, that is the question? A button on a keyboard that you use to move to a certain fixed position in a line of a document that you are typing.

Upon request of my dear Kaylee kitteh, here's a bit of a HINT.

As you all might have noticed, the answers are definitions of words. In his last round of questions, Psydkik has already found some of the definitions, e.g. the "small animal with soft fur, long ears and a short tail" seems to be a rabbit.

Have a look at all the questions that I answered with this definition, and find out what those questions have in common and how this could be related to "rabbit", not to the actual definition.

Is this generally accurate? Tables being stupidly annoying to format, feel free to just tell me which lines are wrong :-)

Is there any relevance to the fact that a large number of these start with CONSONANT + A? Relevant that a large number of these are very close to at least one other word in the list alphabetically? Relevant that they are all nouns?

Perhaps "mob" is "gang" in that case?
And "lunatic" could be "madman"?

no dead kids around here, are there? No, not yet. And I dont think there will be any.

Can you not answer questions that don't include a doubled letter?
Can you not answer questions that don't include a doubled component of the alphabet?
By a doubled letter, do you mean something like the l in "ball", or just two l's as in "level"? And what do you mean by "component of the alphabet?

Kalira, nice list! Let's see...
correct

1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21 (although I just realised the corresponding questions should actually have been answered with "CA"), 22, 24, 25
almost correct
20
not correct
8 (it's not "madman" either), 9 (it's not "gang" either)
As for 5, you have the right word, but the wrong definition - there are two definitions that are very similar, one of which is missing in your list

Is this generally accurate? Tables being stupidly annoying to format, feel free to just tell me which lines are wrong :-) Yes, see above - well done :-)

Is there any relevance to the fact that a large number of these start with CONSONANT + A? YES Relevant that a large number of these are very close to at least one other word in the list alphabetically? YES Relevant that they are all nouns? yesish

Ahh, I had noticed the slightly different definition and figured you'd just gotten sick of writing the long one out.

Slightly diff def'n (let's call it 26, if we need to refer back in future): "A piece of paper etc. that is attached to sth and gives information about it"? would that be "tag"? or is this one "label"? and the one in my table "tag"?

So the question "Thufyhyuwrroffoisgpugnnvddctwwq?" should have the answer "CA" instead of "fabulist" then? I shall update if so.

23: tangerine?

Will have to come back to 8, 9, and 20 later.

crazy person: raver? patient? no to both

orange: tangelo? no. The word you're looking for is only used in one part of the English-speaking world, so you're probably not familiar with it (neither was I before I posted this puzzle!). Don't dwell on it.

Is time or date the questions are posted relevant to the solution? no to both

6 A piece of paper etc. that is attached to sth and gives information about it. label
7 The four folds of skin at the entry of a woman's vagina. labia
8 A room or building used for scientific research, experiments, testing, etc. laboratory
9 Used to address a man whose name you do not know. mac
10 A muslim ruler or officer in the Mogul empire. nabob
11 A Mexican dish of crisp pieces of tortilla served with beans, cheese, spices etc. nachos
12 A serious illness that cows can get from a type of fly. nagana
13 A small animal with soft fur, long ears and a short tail. rabbit

There were 26 answers as of the last table, but fabulist was removed, so we're back to 25.

I have an Excel spreadsheet with all the questions and associated answers (as well as the CAs). I will see if I can make it accessible on Google docs, or if I can't, will make it available to anyone who wants to see it.

Wow, you really do go the extra mile, Kalira =)

Here's a HINT: You've already found out that all of the words start with a consonant. And I can tell you that no matter what question you ask, it will *always* start with a consonant (unless it's CA, of course). It'll also always be a noun. It's also important that some of the words are very close to each other, alphabetically.

It seems like these are all very early, in alphabetical order, among nouns that start with those particular consonants.

If it weren't a proper noun, would a "Saab" (the car) ever be one of the answers? or "Baal" (the ancient god)? or does the third letter always have to be another consonant?

Oops, this is still on, so then...

==========SPOILER======================

There is an alphabetically ordered list of keywords with explanations, as in a dictionary.
I hope we are not supposed to work out the whole list, or how you compiled it...

Now the rule is as follows:
1. Take the question and work out the most frequent consonant in it (and its frequency). If there is a tie, the answer is CA.
2. Look up in the keyword list, start with said consonant, and take the n-th entry beginning with that letter (where n is the frequency of the letter in the question).
3. Now the answer is the explanation, not the keyword.

I found out some of the keywords, and they fit nicely into this rule (including alphabetical order).



Actually, I found it kind of stupid to set up that mail in English, but at least I could now just copy&paste ;-)

Thanks for the perfect spoiler, Beaver! And thanks to all others who played! =)

The words on the list were indeed taken from a dictionary. I only used the nouns, leaving out all those that are acronyms, abbreviations or proper names.

The missing words are
a crazy person = wacko
a small type of orange = naartjie (the Afrikaans word for satsuma, which is also used in Southern African English)
