I have to give Tom the opportunity for a rematch, so here's my attempt at an Anagrid (here is the first puzzle in the series). The rules:

This square is composed of elements, all in the same set, written either horizontally or vertically. There is no overlap, each letter belongs to exactly one word. However, the letters of the words have been reordered. Please find the words, and which one is obviously missing from the set.

    $\begingroup$ Does this wordsearch allow words written backwards/upwards as well as forwards/downwards? ;-) $\endgroup$ Apr 19, 2020 at 10:26

    $\begingroup$ The letters have been reordered, I can't tell whether they have been written backwards or not :) $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


These are words for

GERMAN in different languages

The words are

Tedesco - Italian - R1C2
German - English - R7C3
Tysk - Danish/Norwegian/Sweden - C8R2
Almanca - Turkish - R8C3
Német - Hungarian - R5C3
Alemán - Spanish - R2C2
Saksa - Finnish - R4C3
Alemao - Portuguese - R6C3
Niemi(e)cki - Polish - R1C1?
Duits - Dutch - R3C2
Dútsk - West Frisian - R3C3

I guess the obviously missing one is Deutsch.

  • $\begingroup$ I hadn't noticed I'd missed, but after you noted still took a long time to find an anagram - and I don't know the subject! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ The question also asks for the obviously missing one. $\endgroup$ Apr 19, 2020 at 11:30
  • $\begingroup$ @LannyStrack, thanks for this, I hadn't read to the end of the question. Took a try. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, the final answer is now correct. And indeed I made a typo in the longest one, sorry for that. $\endgroup$
