As the title says this is going to be a riddle similar to a teapot but a bit different. As with the teapot riddles I have a word that has 2 or more meanings. The twist is you are going to be given two different, but related teapots and have to decipher the teapot of theirs that are related. Sorry if there is any confusion I think it will make more sense once you look at the riddle. I will do my best to answer any questions and as always good luck!


The first word's first teapot is an act of respect.

The second word's first teapot is a tremble of fear.

What is each word's teapot that relate to one another?

More teapots for each word will be added if needed.

  • $\begingroup$ is this line 'The twist is you are going to be given two different, but related teapots and have to decipher the teapot of theirs that are related' the actual riddle? $\endgroup$ – Naeem Shaikh Sep 28 '18 at 13:02

    $\begingroup$ To clarify, as an example, could one clue lead to a bow tie, and the other clue lead to the action 'to leave'. Their teapots could then be bough (of a tree) and leave(s) (of a tree). The connection then being a tree? EDIT wow I was actually really close with my example xD $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Sep 28 '18 at 13:04

    $\begingroup$ Yeah sorry @Naemm Shaikh I couldn't find the right words to describe it well but AHKieran's example is exactly what I was trying to say. Hopefully that helps explain it for anyone still confused. $\endgroup$ – gabbo1092 Sep 28 '18 at 13:07

    $\begingroup$ Why are these called "teapot" riddles? It seems you've just replaced the word "meaning" or "definition" with "teapot". Is there some kind of meta-puzzle I'm missing that connects a meaning of the word "teapot" to a meaning of the word "definition"? If not, it only really obfuscates the puzzle. $\endgroup$ – Nuclear Wang Sep 28 '18 at 13:24

The act of respect is

Bow

And another word for tremble is

Quiver

These are related because

A quiver holds arrows, which are shot with the bow.
