Question

Ok, I know I promised but blame it on Scottie, or the late lunch, or the unbelievably long line at the bank on a Friday afternoon before a three day weekend.

Also inspired by the slew of lists seen here most recently. Well here goes. You kids play amongst yourselves for a while.

1. Understands about greeting nary one existing question. (7)

2. Behold,you and me on the cross. (5)

3. Barely passing and the next one coming and going before crazy old sailor. (9)

4. Most elementary question in an Old World grouping one inside a shortened many. (7)

5. Asp and arch shapes around kid, that is. (7)

6. Roach before an exclamation, not outerspace existence. (6)

7. Total reversal of afterthought is more average sized. (4)

8. Look, man, twin Vipers move over mirrored in previous subcutaneous drip. (11)

9. Small spelling error encircled. NOTE: mass abreviated passport. (7)

0. Be quiet, alias last listed. Not me surrounding urban transit. (9)

The theme of the list and the "answers" will most likely come pretty quickly. The fun? is figuring out the rationale behind the translation.

For those new to these Play on Word Quickies: Each word or two (generally speaking) of the puzzle corresponds to a letter or two (generally speaking) "spelling" out the answer. Other descriptors can be thrown in refering to the relation of individual letters. The letters will "read" left to right as presented unless there is a descriptor that directs otherwise. For the most part, punctuation is not part of the answer but rather to make the clue read better. Other than that, the clues are very precise. There are no unnecessary words in the clues or extra letters in the answers.

Have a nice long weekend Scottie.

Question = eh?

Many = a lot, lots, bunch, several ...

nothing wrong with your logic, just happens to be different than this answer

Question does refer to one letter just not A (eh) so go thru the alphabet. Many, in this case, refers to more than one.

Yes, reread the puzzle and plug 'em in with what you have so far and maybe which one (O or Y) and the answer will reveal itself.

plentitude would be a better fit for many. shortened is still pl

meaning many, meaning more than one as already said, is commonly abbreviated pl. In other words, if you saw pl. what would come to mind?

plural

Right on. You two have all the letters and the few words in the "sentence" not used should order them. Heyupal thinks you can tie it up (illiesm or whatever?)?

Yeah, I see now you already did, sorry, am really not a nag

H

E-european

why=Y

U=union

Pl=many

a= one inside many =pal

That's it for this one.

Okay, just one more and a tiny piece of another:

- 5. which is missing one little explanation (see posts #25 and my responses in #27 and #48)

- 9. chicory got a good start on this one (see post #23 and my response #26)

I thought scottie nailed 5 already ^_^

He pretty much did

for TT and then gave one that was incorrect. TOT is not it; the O was already used...

again, hate to be a nag. If you would like I'll concede...

Okay, this is where we were:

- 9. Small spelling error encircled. NOTE: mass abreviated passport. (7)

9)
small spelling error = weesp OR abbreviated needs two bs =b

encircled=0,no

NOTE: n or nb or no T or 0T

mass: m or g or k

abbreviated passport= i.d. or p.p. or p

bonomid, bomp, weespotgid, bonokid, bongid ??? don't see any of these in member listing-- closest is bongokid, and i can't justify the position of the second o

And I had said that the missing b in abbreviation was not a part of the puzzle.

All the letters are represented above (and then some) except those associated with NOTE. Also a few directors may be misplaced or unidentified.

passport = ID; SP is right but incomplete and the reasoning not quite right.

MID is totally correct. PLAS is not quite. NOTE is not really defined that I can tell. In my solution it is part of PLAS. If you can elaborate what part of the puzzle it is in your solution, maybe we have two answers.

and we can put this one to bed.

note as a sidenote is just saying that the following "mid" is to the side of plas. I am not happy with this, but it was all I could think of. So far.

You've been very patient-- if you like, I will concede this.
