Parts of Words

Question

I just invented this word game. The first player tells the second player part of a word, and then the second player has to guess the full word. The second player wins if they can think of any word that contains the word part.

 

For example, "eard" is part of the word "beard".

 

I played a few rounds with my brother. Here were some of our word parts:

 

ecalc

airb

rinci

tibac

uidel

gorit

igna

eyho

 

See if you can solve any of them. Also, feel free to post some of your own parts of words on this thread, so that others can try them.

Ok, ok. You win. You're too good.  :P

 

I cheated because "multiquote" is not a real word...

Spoiler

Perhaps, MULTIQUAESTIA, a moth genus of the family Tortricidae is a valid answer for LTIQ. Though the word isn't a common English word, the binomial nomenclature of plants and animals is considered international.
