    Is it pain? “Ow!” and “pain”?

  4. jason | Guest

    I’m determined to get this one.


    if it said by 3 letters expressed id say the feeling is spelled LOSS and expressed RIP

    ok heres my best shot, i know its wrong but
    Lone as the feeling spelled, Me as expressed.

    ow and pain? or do the letters have to be the same between the 2 letter word and the 4 letter word

  8. biobot | Guest

    This is very vague. A four-letter emotion or sensation expressed by two letters. I’d say “pain” and “ow”.

    Feeling all dislike: mourn
    Two letters: am
    Full spelling: morn

    NV goes with the Alien theme. :)

    Envy it is. It took me a little while to associate with the picture theme until I finally saw the light.

    Envy was the ‘official’ answer, but it’s very interesting to see the other words you guys came up with…

    Pain, cold, mourn, and Lone are excellent ideas too.

    Scott, you  have a knack for alternative / lateral thinking right answers-I still remember Baby Duck! Smiley
