Contradiction by erasure (Posted on 2019-01-02) Difficulty: 3 of 5
A 5-letter word, related to slow speed, becomes fast if you erase its last letter.

Tricky, but true!

The words are contradictory only if they “stand alone” - in this puzzle LENTO (from Italian) is used in music as a direction to play in slow tempo while LENT denotes a Christian fast of repentance; it occurs yearly from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday - 40 days
