An Amphibious Riddle

A monosyllable I am,-a reptile, I vow;

If you put me together, I’m syllables two;

I’m English, I’m Latin, I’m one or the other,

What’s English for one half, is Latin for t’other.

What am I?

    The answer is toad. I thought a toad was an amphibian though.

    Hi RK,

    Can you please explain this riddle? I am totally perplexed as to how ‘toad’ is the correct answer, and it is driving me crazy! <:{. Thank you. z

    Hi there Zenitih,

    Unfortunately, the riddle is not entirely accurate, and could of probably been a little more ‘correct’, since a toad is not a reptile, but in any case:

    monosyllabe- ‘toad’
    2 syllables- ‘to’ and ‘ad’, which both mean the same thing (one in Latin, the other English).

    ‘ad’ in Latin means: to, a direction toward, addition to, near; at, in the direction of.

    This one was really tough, only 4 people got it so don’t feel bad :)
