    $\begingroup$ @Gamow Thanks for the edit. What was I doing wrong that was making the question unacceptable? $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Mar 17 '16 at 17:05

I'd imagine it's

Supenlla
"pen" in "Sulla"
Peninsula (misspelled as peninsulla)

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Yep! I didn't misspell it though. I said "sulla" instead of "sula" because "sulla" is a reald word. $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Mar 17 '16 at 16:19
  • $\begingroup$ @RichardRoe: I think he means that "peninsulla" is misspelled. $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Mar 17 '16 at 17:10

    $\begingroup$ And there I go. I make a post defending my spelling and I misspell a word in it! $\endgroup$ – Richard Roe Mar 17 '16 at 18:08

I spent way too much time on this one, overthinking it mostly. But it has to be

Peninsula

because

pen is in su"pen"lla, but if you take it out it's sulla, so pen is in sulla, pen-in-sulla, peninsulla, and it was just misspelled to lead people off track, so peninsula.
