Back in ForthLanguage brain teasers are those that involve the English language. You need to think about and manipulate words and letters.
Based on the clue in parentheses, find a four-letter word that can be inserted backwards into the blank to complete a longer word.
Example: di____ve (a defeat)
Answer: dissolve ("A defeat" gives you LOSS, which is placed backwards in the blank: di_SSOL_ve.)
1. dis____s (horse movement)
2. mi____ce (high mountains)
3. l____ion (a Mexican food)
4. s____ing (food skin)
HintHere are clues for the eight-letter words:
Answer1. distorts (TROT - dis_TORT_s)
2. misplace (ALPS - mi_SPLA_ce)
3. location (TACO - l_OCAT_ion)
