Connections

I like the current format and prefer it to a timed version with unlimited guesses. Forces you to take a step back and consider all potential groups before diving in. Not too dissimilar to how in Only Connect you only get 3 chances to identify the final two groups.

Another enjoyable one today. So many red herrings that it rewarded finding connections with no red herrings or figuring out the entire wall before a first attempt.

Connections is slowly becoming my favourite daily puzzle.

Getting irked by the phrase “red herring”. The correct terminology is surely “herring which could validly be either purple or yellow”.

for is not a homophone of four.

Homophone.com disagrees with you.

Escutcheon v Big Homophone is not what i expected at this time on a Wednesday.

they don’t sound the same though. right? that’s the definition? fore/four, yep, for/four nope, not in every english dialect.

Well no, probs not, but i’m struggling to think of any where they don’t sound the same. Almost certainly my lack of worldliness, though.

Cornish? Ask @Funkhouser

I’d say won and one is quite distinct in certain English accents

Not disagreeing with you, but I can’t hear in my head how for and four are potentially different

Is there a rolled ‘r’ ?

yeah, up here in the North those two sound veeery distinct in most places

well, forward and foreword don’t sound the same, so why would for and fore?
