# Monoalphabetic Equation

A set of letters has been replaced by $$a$$, $$b$$, $$c$$, and $$d$$.
Following are some of the words that consist of those letters, and their meaning:

$$abc = a\ title\ (n.)$$

$$abcd = a\ title\ > abc\ (n.),\ give\ cbad\ to\ (v.)$$

$$Dcba ⊂ (a\ title\ > abcd)\ (n.)$$

$$Dcba = Represents\ what\ often\ comes\ before\ or\ after\ bcd\ (n.)$$

$$bcd = ARGHH!\ (n.)$$

$$cbad = move\ abc\ to\ abcd\ (v.),\ \land (v.)$$

What are the letters that $$a$$, $$b$$, $$c$$, and $$d$$ replace, respectively?

• When you say alphabets do you mean letters? – gabbo1092 Nov 27 '18 at 15:00
• @gabbo1092 Yes, these are English words. – Chrone Nov 27 '18 at 15:02

a, b, c, d are

s, i, r, e

"sir" = a title (given to a man)
"sire" = a title greater than "sir" (given to a king), or to give "rise" to
"Eris" = Name (names are titles) of someone greater than a "sire" (specifically, a greek goddess, see below)
"Eris" = Greek goddess of strife (strife can lead to or cause "ire", coming before or after it)
"ire" = anger
"rise" = move from "sir" to "sire", or to go up

etc.

• Yeah, got the answer quickly, but even with it I still don't fully get the third line. Any ideas? – Timoris Nov 27 '18 at 15:18
• @Timoris I'll give you a hint in another set of letters r13(z < x < t) – Chrone Nov 27 '18 at 15:22
