    Words that end in "IRY"

    The "Words That End In" franchise
    proudly presents
    the most successful game thread of all history,
    back on ForumGarden by POPULAR DEMAND!

    We tried a while ago to post only words which ended in INTH. It was all too brief.
    This was followed by INCH. It was an overnight success!
    A third outing, of words ending in ONCH, brought out intense rivalry!
    We then moved into high gear with words ending in ONCK, the most hard-fought contest to date.
    The search for words ending in ANK, was reviewed in Time Magazine as "reminiscent of Mrs Thrale's gatherings".
    The subsequent investigation into words ending in ARK induced rule revisions.
    The hunt for words ending in ARB was mercifully brief.
    An exciting contest for words ending in ERB, saw an avalanche of submissions from an international array of players.
    Players struggled for words ending in ERO, several tripping on the rule revisions regarding dictionary searches and context displays.
    Odie then pipped a field of contestants producing words ending in EDO in a nailbiting finish worthy of Takeshi's Castle.
    AussiePam subsequently startled the world by claiming to be "coffeedy" while producing words ending in EDY. AussiePam was docked two points on this game's scoresheet, for cheek.
    Tabby then won her first contested round for words ending in DDY after a close-fought struggle with ZAP.
    Unprecedented enthusiasm broke out when the site examined words ending in DRY


    In the interests of fair adjudication in this round
    every entry must have a sample sentence attached which shows the word employed in a natural English setting

    Entries score double if the sample sentence is a legitimate quotation from a published work

    Players are courteously reminded that dictionary searches are forbidden




    Good luck to all our contestants!

    Once a name or word has been offered in the thread it may not be offered again. Proper nouns, acronyms and abbreviations, where they lack alternate non-derivative meanings which are neither proper, acronymic or abbreviated, are excluded. Submissions must use current English spelling adjudicated from the Oxford English Dictionary. Consecutive posts within the game thread must not contain submissions from the same player. The use of computer software to generate submissions is forbidden. Relatives and employees of the game's management may not enter. The competition is governed by English Law. The winner of this competition will be entered in the annual ForumGarden Competition Winners' Knock-out Photo Contest. No prize carries financial value exceeding the lowest denomination coin of the realm, for which it may be exchanged at the request of the winner. This is a game of skill without payment of money or money's worth or the provision of goods or services and does not constitute a lottery, pool, prize game or chain-gift scheme.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Heigh ho the dairy oh...wait, that’s derry. So no published work points for me.

    Vegans drink soy milk because dairy is an animal byproduct.

    AIRY



    The Slothful, negligent;
    The Foppish neat;
    The Lewd are airy,
    And the Sly discreet.

    That was very good, I quite liked "What a person thinks can make him just as sick as what's real". But I couldn't find your quote in it.
