This was a fairly simple one besides that when I obtained 4 letters in the fitting spot it got here right down to a significant guessing sport that might have been thwarted had I guessed too many IGHT phrases earlier than deciding on LIGHT. Fortuitously 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 closing guess, that might have haunted me to my core.

“Right now’s phrase has two main traces of that means, from two traces of etymology. The shining gentle comes from a Latin root (lucere, consider Lucifer), whereas the I-could-lose-a-few-pounds gentle comes from a Greek root that means gentle in movement or weight. In fact, there are metaphorical makes use of, as in Jim Morrison’s “Come on, child, gentle my fireplace,” or—and I apologize for those who get this tune caught in your head—Debby Boone’s “You Mild up my Life.” So, you ask, what in regards to the third type, LITE? That’s a contemporary marvel of promoting. How does one make a product stand out, say, amongst beers awash in blandness? Two selections. You would have an excellent promoting marketing campaign, just like the one from Bud Mild. Or you could possibly go along with orthographic acrobatics to make individuals take notice. Voila, Miller Lite. The gross sales go up; the blandness abides.”
