holding point

hey Qesh - good to see you here. think you picked a tough one. changed this clue last minute which typically brings regrets. dont really see the two words in your answer as synonomous but please correct me if so.

Prediction - when referred to as ie, how long something takes, many people say "will be there in about 10 minutes" etc.

Eh well. Try a few more.

hey t_l - accept your argument and answer for the one from before. kinda see a connection with those two words in terms of an estimation as well.

can also make arguments for the two new answers as well. still have different ones in mind.

disclaimer - one of the words in my answer for the "Jealous Nut" clue is more of a type than a synonomous word. sorry bout that. all other connections are definitie synonyms.

Also - where A B --> C D; A and C, B and D , C and D are synonomous BUT any three are not necessarily so.

joined together

that one works and was what I had, too.

sweep clean

wouldn't put it past me on the last one. this one is different. the two words to the answer I have in mind might be considered doubly synonomous; with two completely different definitions

sorry, been neglecting this

thanks for mentioning but no worries. I have been somewhat, also. knew this one was pretty tough. partially because it was quite difficult to come up with qualifying answers. Also, because of that, I thought there wouldn't be so many alternatives. maybe just a bad puzzle.

Dead End?

hey benjer3 - thanks for playing. I was skeptical of the relationship between the second words but looked up account and discovered "to account for" something can mean to put out of action; kill. So, okay. Nice
