Glossing over the redundancy (as if there were old innovations :slight_smile: ), Mac asked for new puzzles. The ones posted so far are older than I am. Listen, people, if you’ve heard these before, they ain’t new, and we already know the answer.

But don’t move this thread yet. Hey, just bear with me and quizical Mac. Here is a new one I made up. I have posted it on rec.puzzles about three years ago, so, it’s possible someone here may have seen it already:

Come up with an eight word sentence that uses each part of speech once. It has to be a valid, grammatically correct sentence.

Some of the rought spots to look out for:

  1. Be careful not to take a word usually associated with one part of speech and use it for another part but then count it for its usual part. For example, words usually used as prepositions can become adverbs when used by themselves without an object of a preposition. In the sentence, The shooting was a drive by, ‘by’ is an adverb. In the sentence, Take a drive by the park, ‘by’ is a preposition.

  2. Conjunctions should join two like elements (“but if you can’t repeat a part of speech” – that’s the trick to figuring this out). Starting a sentence with ‘and’ or ‘but’ works in poetry or in the midst a prosaic paragraph, but does not make a valid stand-alone sentence. And that’s the truth.

  3. Hints: If you command your mind properly, you may have already seen an answer.

Here’s a word puzzle, which I saw in Games magazine but had to look at the answer. What a common English word that, if you split it in half, the first half is the opposite of the whole word, and the second half is a synonym for the whole word?

impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be
