Same Sounding


Question

Meant just for good fun, like one from before.

Solve the five below, and then there is more.

Smaller in a sense, yet off the charts I can be.

Most common of man or deserted possibly.

Sometimes they'll listen, so get it off you should.

From me you would surely escape if you could.

Since no belly-aching's allowed, and he also cant fight.

We're hard to resist because the prices so right.

Found if taken over a period of time.

Make opinions count, like how 'bout this rhyme?

Similar to Eve just is not so poetic.

Served with haste, short and phonetic.

To begin the next step, a key you will need.

Entitling you to, the final answer indeed.

3.

Cow? Beef is cheap in latin countries, and cow is the root of coward... too much of a stretch -.-

Maybe Drew Carry? Not athletic = can't fight, and he now hosts price is right. lol

Hm, thinking about the title, rate and nite are similar, so...

2.

Ail? Or Ale? Both of them could be things you'd want to get away from.

OH! Hail! You hail a cab, sometimes they'll listen, and the weather hail is something you want to avoid.

Back to 3.

Did I guess bait yet? Bait (whether when fishing or gaming) can't fight (in the case of gaming, you can't fight too much)

Hey DarthN, your guesses wont help you with the final answer. The third one is solved.

deal(s)

The second one, not yet (including your guesses). Please keep at it.

storm? hoping that hasn't been guessed by anyone yet...and hoping that it's right - that'd be nice, eh?

hasn't been guessed that I can recall, but not it. would certainly be nice to have solved but also nice to have resurrected. Thanks and, oh yeah, gmornin.

Also, am wondering if all we have solved so far is posted anywhere? Might be helpful, I suppose I could go search through 9 pages, but thought I'd be lazy and see if you had it.

Another good guess, but not it, sorry.

What we have so far is: isle, ??? , deals, rate, nite.

So the second couplet is yet to be solved:

Sometimes they'll listen, so get it off you should.

From me you would surely escape if you could.

or, given as an alternative:

Sometimes they'll listen, so
l
et it o
ut
you should.

From me you would surely escape if you could.

Also hinted that it is both intangible and tangible (and I'll add: as described in the rhyme)

Wow, had never seen that alternate writing. Gave me another idea, probably not right. But who knows, eh?

Good answer, fits better with the rewrite than with the original version. It will still fit both versions. And regarding the tangible bit; it could actually be touched.

Parrot? I figure if it was a parrot that copied what you said, it'd get annoying after a while, and you'd want to get away. But that's a stretch. (I was thinking dog, but that doesn't fit the listening part)

Seals! Eels! Dial!

(that's getting me nowhere...)

Maybe it's just noise?

EDIT: dang I forgot it can be touched! Gr.

EDIT2: maybe sweat? If so, then you'd have that weird thing again where every word shares two of the letters of the next word
