Word Oddity (3) Back and forth (Posted on 2007-11-22) Difficulty: 1 of 5
I am thinking of a particular word property.

'Aluminosilicates' has this property, but 'unprosperousness' does not.
'Epicoracohumeraler' has it, but 'conversationalists' does not.
'Honorificabilitudinitatibus' does, but 'antidisestablishmentarianism' does not.
What property am I talking about?

When first seeing this, other than seeing one set being boldened, the only thing that stood out was:

And I beg pardons because I knew it to be outrageaous, but it's worthy of a share: What is the first character of the "bolds"?

Lesson: "Look before you leap".  In this case it took many leaps to see what and others saw before Ady has shown his thoughts.

Simple, and a good one at that level John; I really did like it on realisation.
