There is a certain common word in English language (say XYZ
) such that prefixing it with a letter A
creates a new word (AXYZ
) that is a plural of another valid English word.
Find it - preferably with pen, paper and your knowledge only.
There is a possibility for several answers...
That is, an episode of America's Funniest Home Videos, had someone asked "If Y-E-S spells 'yes', what does E-Y-E-S spell?" Of course the question and answer have one answer to this puzzle.
The alternative takes the A in the original puzzle literally:
A + YES = ayes, the plural of a synonym for the same word.
