Nibir was the only one who knew "quid pro quo", so for that he deserved to win and Tyler didn't.

Judges: Salem okay by itself? It's probably the most famous, but there's also several others, notably Oregon's capital.

I forgot to mention in the previous post that Rachel got credit for having "and" between the two and not a hyphen, so either way is fine if it comes up for judging a response come poll time.
I'd probably be okay with no hyphen, but I'm not sure having an "and" should be allowed.

Re: Monday, March 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I think it's important to point out that: 1) Singin' vs. singing has nothing to do with "grammar," and singin' isn't an "error" — it's an informal/dialectal pronunciation variant; and 2) "Dropping the g " is a total misnomer, since there is no /g/ sound in the -ing suffix. The letters ng represent ...

I've always understood the rule on Jeopardy to be that you are not penalized if you fix a grammatical error for example by changing Singin to singing but you are in trouble if you drop a g, such as changing Waiting for Godot to Waitin' for Godot. Heaven Help me if I ever get on the show and Final J...

Re: Monday, March 16, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Shower thought this morning (seriously) - would a contestant get dinged for "Singing In The Rain"? Different situation than Gangsta's/Gangster's Paradise. It is? Seems like a similar situation to me. The film's "Singin' in the Rain" (I wouldn't be opposed to making the apostrophe required); the son...

Okay, is it just me that has an issue with Lebanon spelled with an E? It's a schwa in English; you could replace it with any other vowel (including y!) and it would be accepted. Lebbynon would be accepted?? :shock: Sure, there's no reason the Y couldn't be pronounced as in "anonymous." Huh...I gues...

Okay, I'm not sure that FJ should've been correct. I don't mind the double b, but it's not leb-EH-non, it's leb-AH-non (heck, I think lebb-UH-non would've worked).
Lucky for me you don't score LL since I got three points for "Vasoline".
LL?

Also, Vasoline is a thing. A pretty kickass song.

While I think people may refer to "penalty minutes" as "penalties", that's definitely too informal. Isn't Alex Canadian?
