Sunday Jumble Spoiler – 04/19/20

 

Sharon Walpole develops improved English curriculum for elementary ...

Visual Description:  Nouns of renown?

LAPWLO  =  WALLOP,  OHRATU  =  AUTHOR,  RYTOWH  =  WORTHY,  VESPIL  =  PELVIS,  LDUPED  =  PUDDLE,  TREEWT  =  WETTE  —   Giving us:  WOAOORYPEIPDTTR

Clue/Question:  Capitalizing the first letter of nouns that are names is the – – –

Pre-Answer:  Five Words  (6-letters) (3-letters) (2-letters) (2-letters) (2-letters) 

Nouns I Have Who Has Game (Common Nouns, Proper Nouns, Pronouns ...

Answer:  PROPER WAY TO DO IT

(I was able to get the final answer immediately, but it took a few seconds for the pun aspect to set in.  I guess grammar is not my strong suit.  I’d kind of forgotten about proper nouns.  I’m a little doubtful, but I sure hope that elementary schools are still teaching grammar and parts of speech.  From the way I see a lot of young people write, especially in texts and on social media, I really wonder if they’re spending enough time on it.

All of today’s clue words are already on the ralis95 clue word database.  Five of the six jumbles are coming up as new, for me.  We’ve seen “vespil” before.  The only one that gave me trouble was “ohratu”.  I guess it’s because of so many vowels, and the clue word – “author” – doesn’t only start with a vowel, but with two vowels!  Fortunately, I didn’t have to resort to backing into it.  The answer letter layout was an exemplary fifteen letter jumble.  If it wasn’t for the length of the final answer slots, and the clue/question, I might have had a harder time solving this.

Great classroom cartoon.  I couldn’t even tell you what grade this is, or should be.  The kids look to be around ten years old, maybe younger.  Another fine Sunday Jumble from the boys!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
