Y is for ... ???

Thanks to all who dropped by yesterday! The answer to yesterday's post was, XENOPHOBIA. Haha. If you don't get the sex change bit of the riddle, it's because usually in Greek, words that end in 'a', are feminine (we're talking grammar here), and words that end in 'o' are masculine. So instead of 'xena', it's 'xeno' :o) hehe. Okay, yeah, I'm losing it ... *dum da dum dum ...

Another riddle:

A noun that sounds like a verb about gaining knowledge with a speach impediment.

PS: Nicole, sorry for abandoning the fiction excerpts!!! :-/ I'll try and do a great piece for tomorrow's sign off! :o)

So, can you guess the emotion/feeling/state of mind (a noun) depicted in this piece that begins with the letter ‘Y’? Please nip over to Nicole's blog to read her interpretation of our Y-prompt word. Here’s the link!

  3. You've stumped me. Yammer? Yodel? (don't know how either of those gain knowledge, but I like them)

  11. Yikes! LOL I have no clue what the answer is but I think it has something to do with the way speach is spelled.

  15. I agree, yearning. Love the riddles, although today it took both yours and Nicole's post for me to come up with an answer.

  19. Yearn. Though Barbra Streisand's character did yearn to learn knowledge in Yentl.
