Meditation 2.23.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle
Today, I heard about a wordplay game that sounds like a fun alternative to Scrabble.
Kangaroo words are words that contain their synonym inside them. Finding these words and their respective inner synonym has been a game for many years and was popularized back in "American Magazine" back in the 1950s by Ben Odell.
I feel very misinformed, until today, I had never heard of such a game and have now started scouring the internet, looking for these words.
So far, the kangaroo words I have come across are:
Catacomb -----> Tomb
Chicken ------> Hen
Observe ------> See
Blossom ------> Bloom
Hear ------> Ear
Masculine -----> Male
I have just started my search and plan on adding many more words to this list, stay tuned for additions.
