A = B = AB (Posted on 2004-02-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Oleomargarine is what margarine was originally called, sometimes shortened to 'oleo'. This makes it one of a select few: words which can be broken into two words, so that each of the two and the original word are synonymous. That is: oleomargarine = oleo = margarine. Can you find another two English words that share this property?

tou·ché = Pronunciation Key (t-sh)
Used to acknowledge a hit in fencing or a successful criticism or an effective point in argument.

N.B. I still like the modest " ady ".
