Can you C it? (Posted on 2019-02-06) Difficulty: 3 of 5
The following English words have something in common:

we're, dying, nice, slight

Don't give away the common factor, but instead list another word on the list in your answer.

All of the words are homophones with other words that do not follow the rule: "I before E except after C, or when sounding like A as in neighbor and weigh" We're - weir there - their dying - dyeing nice - gneiss slight - sleight There are at least several other common words that answer this puzzle, and I have found a few more less common words also.
