# What is a Romeo Word™?

In the spirit of the What is a Word™/Phrase™ series started by JLee, a special brand of Phrase™ and Word™ puzzles.
Template taken from Rubio.

Finally made a formal What is a Word puzzle after the Grammy puzzle!

If a word conforms to a special rule, I call it a Romeo Word™.
Use the following examples below to find the rule.

$$% set Title text. (spaces around the text ARE important; do not remove.) % increase Pad value only if your entries are longer than the title bar. % \def\Pad{\P{0.0}} \def\Title{\textbf{ Romeo }} % \def\S#1#2{\Space{#1}{20px}{#2px}}\def\P#1{\V{#1em}}\def\V#1{\S{#1}{9}} \def\T{\Title\textbf{Words}^{\;\!™}\Pad}\def\NT{\Pad\textbf{Not}\T\ }\displaystyle \smash{\lower{29px}\bbox[yellow]{\phantom{\rlap{rubio.2019.05.15}\S{6px}{0} \begin{array}{cc}\Pad\T&\NT\\\end{array}}}}\atop\def\V#1{\S{#1}{5}} \begin{array}{|c|c|}\hline\Pad\T&\NT\\\hline % \text{ achieve }&\text{ obtain }\\ \hline \text{ amphibian }&\text{ reptile }\\ \hline \text{ audiotape }&\text{ cassette }\\ \hline \text{ collapsing }&\text{ erect }\\ \hline \text{ cytomegalic }&\text{ retinitis }\\ \hline \text{ emu }&\text{ ostrich }\\ \hline \text{ epsilon }&\text{ echo }\\ \hline \text{ labdanum }&\text{ oakmoss }\\ \hline \text{ metal }&\text{ plastic }\\ \hline \text{ neighborhood }&\text{ family }\\ \hline \text{ numerical }&\text{ text }\\ \hline \text{ parasigmatism }&\text{ pronounce }\\ \hline \text{ restaurant }&\text{ inn }\\ \hline \text{ toxic }&\text{ poisonous }\\ \hline \text{ typothetae }&\text{ printers }\\ \hline \end{array}$$

Bonus Question:

What's wrong with the title?

I bet a Romeo Word™ is one which

contains a Greek alphabet letter

The table taught as:

achieve
amphibian
audiotape
collapsing
cytomegalic
emu
epsilon - a double Romeo Word™
labdanum
metal
neighborhood
numerical
parasigmatism
restaurant
toxic
typothetae - a double Romeo Word™

What's wrong with the title?

Perhaps because Romeo contains an Italian capital, and not a Greek letter.

• Dang, a well formatted answer and still beat me by 2 minutes. Nice solve! – TwoBitOperation Jul 19 '19 at 13:11
• @TwoBitOperation - I think your answer explains the title better, all I thought of later is the Nato alphabet letter for d would have been more suitable than r. – Tom Jul 19 '19 at 13:25
• well done! check is on its way :) – Omega Krypton Jul 19 '19 at 15:58

A romeo word:

Contains a Greek letter

chi, phi, iota, psi, omega, mu, epsilon, nu, eta, rho, nu, sigma, tau, xi, theta

Edit: Beaten by @Tom

My guess as to the bonus:

'Romeo' would need to be spelt 'Rhomeo' to conform to the rules?

• TwoBitOperation, will you accept a +100rep bounty offer to compensate for a green tick, given that you have the correct and intended answer, yet you were sniped by 2 minutes? :) – Mr Pie Jul 20 '19 at 9:34
• That's kind of you! I was beaten fair and square, it's all good. – TwoBitOperation Jul 20 '19 at 20:26
• @MrPie How dare you give away bounties, rep's not happy with you >:) – TheSimpliFire Jul 21 '19 at 7:28
