Jumble Spoiler – 08/25/08

RINPT = PRINT, VANKE = KNAVE, STRAIG = GRATIS, SATHAG = AGHAST   —   Giving us:  INTAVERISGHS

Visual Description:  A young family admiring the dream house they just bought.

Clue/Question:  What the couple went through buying the right house.

Answer:  THEIR SAVINGS

(“GRATIS” gave your uncle the most trouble.  “PRINT” jumped right off the page.  And, “KNAVE” and “AGHAST” came nearly as easy.  Your uncle has been called a “KNAVE” by a few people, and he’s always been mildly amused by the word “AGHAST”.)   YUR

    “Gratis” is Spanish. I assumed these were to be English words.

    ‘Sup, Lewis!

    Spanish – Si! Italian – Si! French – Oui! And English . . . yeah, why not? More precisely, “gratis” is Latin, but it has been adopted into the romance languages . . . and English. Many words, from other languages, enter the English lexicon all the time. Gratis is not new, by any means. I’m guessing it entered the English language sometime following William the Conqueror. YUR
