Coherent growing sentences for a prize! (in Contests)


QBOddBird September 24 2005 3:08 AM EDT

O.K., 50k is up for grabs to whoever can make the longest sentence beginning with a single-letter word and increasing by one letter from word to word. This will form a sort of 'word pyramid'. Sentences must be structurally correct, though they must not necessarily make sense. For example:

I
do
eat
lots
since
mommas
pancake
disaster.


On a side note, I'm quite impressed with myself for what I just did.

Begin the contest!

I
do
not
want
users
hating
Oddbird (if you want a dictionary word, replace with 'chicken')
although
sometimes
situations
necessitate
exasperation
traditionally.

That's about all the farther I think I can go. Well, at least before it loses its sentence structure. That was kinda fun.

This is in response to your contest with the words you are doing. It will not let me post the big words in the forums.

I do see dogs cheer barely angelic adorable aardvarks backdating repatriated, alphabetical, anachronistic, bioluminescent, interstratified faintheartedness.

Too many mis-spelled words! The following were not recognized: backdating repatriated bioluminescent interstratified faintheartedness I checked these words and they are correct spelling. Thanks

- it lost sentence structure there. As for the one I recently posted from the CM, I simply posted it to show the effort - the sentence structure stopped quickly.

Vaynard, then, is still winning by one word.

Spellchecker says Unremorseful is misspelled but dictionary and Microsoft Word say it is spelled correctly

Er there should be commas in places, you should know where.

QBOddBird September 24 2005 3:33 PM EDT

Whoa. That was good, flamewind. Flamewind = currently the leader, with Hal in 2nd and Duredhel in 3rd.
