  • $\begingroup$ Hmmm... I think it's quite a liberty with the format to use more than one 'homophone' or misspelled -fix... It's no wonder this one went unsolved. Please note though that only 4 days had passed since you set this riddle - there was no need to reveal the answer so soon. I have seen riddles that have still been unsolved over a year later and then the right person has come along and BOOM it falls at last. Don't feel you need to give the solution after just a few days - give the community time :) Just a tip, meant kindly! $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Stiv Thanks. Still, from what I've seen, using homophones do not seem uncommon. $\endgroup$ Aug 12, 2020 at 20:48

    $\begingroup$ @riskymysteries I've seen the occasional homophone, but I can't think of a riddle with more than one without it being indicated somewhere that this should be expected... The most common Riley approach is to pick words that can be split into 3 other real words - certainly these seem to have a greater success rate (and possibly satisfaction for the solver too)... $\endgroup$
