    English is a remarkably rich language with some bizarre spellings. Can you think of any words containing these 3 letter combinations?

    LKM

    HYT

    YPN

    HTM

    IAI

    they are all common words. Good Luck.

    You guys are too good! I'd never heard of a phyton (had to look it up) and I see there are lots of phyto- words so that was easy for botanists. The everyday word I was thinking of was rhythm.

    I'm always surprised how many people misspell liaison!

    Well Done.

    Thought of 'cuemanship' - heard on snooker programs but not in my dictionary 😠

    Then thought maybe Quem...
    cheated with dictionary and found queme (vt to please, suit, fit)

    Nothing better.

    Wolfgang, I think you'll have to blame the French for finishing this one off.
