AVERT-2 means that two of 'VET' are correct

this is because...

its not A due to Amber and not R due to zebRa

My guess is therefore CRETE

Because it cannot be C due to Couch nor R due to bRain nor T due to kitTy nor E due to raisE

If the score for CRETE is 1 then E is in the third position

but if the score is 0 then V is second and T fifth due to logic above for AVERT score

SPENT

if 1 then V is second due to(meh I'll just steal WBB's proof for a while :D) AVERT-2 means that two of 'VET' are correct this is because its not A due to Amber = 0 and not R due to zebRa= 0. But if SPENT = 1 then only one of ET can be so V must be.

CRETE-1 (that's a non-proper noun word?)

I didn't realise proper nouns were outlawed.

I have read thread but hadn't seen a decision after the question was posed?

Can someone enlighten me pls.

yah no proper nouns, but to be honest it doesn't really matter that's why i scored it. THE word can't be a proper noun but I don't care if guesses are to help eliminate.

Well, I don't have an issue with CRETE, but there does have to be some limits on the words we can use as guesses, to me that's the challenge. ie EXTRA = 1 and I suspect its the E, I can't just say AXTRA if 0 then E is first...I've gotta come up with a word that will help me prove the E

SPEAR

if 2 then A is 4th SPENT = 1 (knowing E is third) rules out SP and AMBER = 0 rules out R leaving EA = 2

I agree with Quag - that is the only word i can see that it can be

GRAIL=1 must be for the L, as V established as 2nd so word is _VE_L (until scores after GRAIL are known)

This structure with A disallowed for first letter means only UVEAL fits (something to do with the eye I believe)
