# I can be awakening

My prefix is unique
My infix is forceful
My suffix is frankly conclusive
Yet, as a whole, I can be awakening

What am I?

HINT:

My prefix is an abbreviation you can find in a definition

• By any chance is your infix rot13(nez)? Commented Mar 18, 2020 at 1:21
• @Dooper I probably shouldn't reveal this half an hour after posting...but rot13(anl)

Taking a shot at this

espresso - this coffee is awakening

My prefix is unique

esp. - abbreviation for especially, as first and foremost is close to unique

My infix is forceful

press - to press is to force

My suffix is frankly conclusive

so - bring a discussion to an end saying so

• Well done, this is correct! Sounds like that hint made it too easy, haha.

• @mestackoverflow -ah maybe, I thought of various types of this answer on first seeing this puzzle, but didn't connect it til I saw the hint.

Could it maybe be

Eyes?

My prefix is unique

The mathematical number e is unique

My infix is forceful

This was the one I wasn’t 100% on, but the Y Force was part of the Chinese Army in WWII

My suffix is frankly conclusive

’Yes’ is a rather frank conclusion

Yet, as a whole, I can be awakening

Eyes will open when you awaken from sleep

I’m not 100% sure if this is right, and I feel this answer might be a bit too short of a word but is this the answer you’re looking for?

• Nice answer, but not quite. I'm starting to think the first line is too vague though..

• @mestackoverflow hmmm probably more so than the other lines at least. I’ve been trying I- E- One- Un- Me- as the prefix but can’t get the rest to work. It’s a really nice short riddle, but might need the addition of an extra line or a hint if it goes too long without a correct answer, I’d keep it as it is for now! Who knows, someone might get it still :) Commented Mar 18, 2020 at 15:55
• @BeastlyGerbil Have you looked into rot13(vq, rtb) for line 1? Also, does the title have anything to do with rot13(Gur Njnxravat ol Xngr Pubcva?). The grammar mistake seems intentional. Commented Mar 20, 2020 at 7:27
• @VirtualValentin no, it doesn't have anything to do with that.
