This was a fairly straightforward one besides that when I acquired 4 letters in the precise spot it got here all the way down to a significant guessing sport that would have been thwarted had I guessed too many IGHT phrases earlier than selecting LIGHT. Thankfully I knew ‘R’ was out (so no ‘RIGHT’ reply, because it had been) in addition to ‘S’ (get out of SIGHT!)
Going for ‘TIGHT’ was dangerous and didn’t repay.
Nonetheless, even thought ‘NIGHT’ was additionally off the mark, I got here to the ‘LIGHT’ earlier than losing any guesses on ‘FIGHT’ or ‘BIGHT’ (sure, it’s a factor and it doesn’t imply ‘BITE’) or ‘MIGHT’ or ‘WIGHT’—a phrase, had I used it for my remaining guess, that may have haunted me to my core.

“Immediately’s phrase has two main traces of that means, from two traces of etymology. The shining mild comes from a Latin root (lucere, consider Lucifer), whereas the I-could-lose-a-few-pounds mild comes from a Greek root that means mild in movement or weight. After all, there are metaphorical makes use of, as in Jim Morrison’s “Come on, child, mild my hearth,” or—and I apologize in the event you get this tune caught in your head—Debby Boone’s “You Gentle up my Life.” So, you ask, what in regards to the third kind, LITE?
