I have an exceptional music box. I can put words inside it. But not all. Here are some of what this curious box admits:

  • Relation
  • Abomination
  • Sofa
  • Umbrella
  • Antidote
  • Gasoline
  • Desire

Can you deduce which words my box admits?


You can suggest words in comments, if they are admitted by the box, I'll try to include them into the list as soon as I can.

I think your box likes

words that contain tonic sol-fa syllables.

Thus:

relation
abomination
sofa
umbrella
antidote
gasoline (I think you could also count "li", as a sharpened "la")
desire

    $\begingroup$ How in the world did you think of that so quickly??? Humans are only supposed to have one brain, y'know! ;) $\endgroup$ – Feeds Mar 29 at 12:26

This has already been answered but I found another answer that fits all the provided words.


Your box admits

Words that contain other words inside them

So we get

Relation
Abomination
Sofa (or Sofa)
Umbrella
Antidote
Gasoline
Desire

  • $\begingroup$ I believe the syllables found in the other answer are also words, so that answer is strictly more precise. $\endgroup$ – noedne Mar 29 at 13:35
