Authorise is ecxactly what I had in mind.

There's another possibility, but I don't like it: thioureas. It's too technical, unless you're an organic chemist. Even then it's too technical.

Okay, you're up.

And, your bonus Jumble word for the day:

QUEENLISASAIDP

I hadn't heard of "thioureas," though I may have just forgotten it. Yet, I did note the word "urea." Curiosity question: do you write "authorise," or did you just spell it that way to throw us?

PERUSE

SESQUIPEDALIAN

I generally spell "authorize" myself, but "thesauri" has an S, not a Z, and so when I added the O it had to be "authorise". I didn't use Eastpondian spelling to mislead; you gave it to me that way!

note to RE: you got there an hour before I did - (1637 to my 1733, according to the board clock)

or- maybe - Kalleh, did you get them from RE ?

Unless RE deleted a post, I am totally confused, per usual! I didn't get anything from RE. Confused

According to Oxford, peruse means "to read or study, especially thoroughly or carefully". And I believe Oxford in preference to the eponymous Carolyn.

This post in the egregious thread was the first recent apearance of "sesquipedalian" in conjunction with "peruse," and I wondered if that wasn't the source of your Bonus Jumble. Didn't know whether he got it from you, or you got it from him, or simply great minds are thinking alike.!

Happy New Year, all!

Ohhhhh! A little dense here in Kalleh-land! Yes, that most definitely was a piece of cross-threading. Love that word "sesquipedalian," though! Big Grin

GNUDIST is all we had here. I'm happy to say.

Although my first thought would be of the place that makes the fancy pianos...)
