Think of words ending in GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

Very clever, geek!! I know the answer but only by cheating (I have admitted it guys)!! I can't help it if I have no patience! Now that I know it & have re-read it it's actually pretty obvious. Got any more? Bring em on & I won't cheat next time.

I think the correct answer is language (should i be posting or sending a pm?) There are three words in "the English language". Language is a thing you use everyday... is that correct?

Yep, play on words answer is language.
But could also be any of the below :lol:


aggry: Coloured and variegated glass beads of ancient manufacture, found buried in the ground in Africa. A word of unknown origin. Seemingly always used attributively, as in aggry beads.
braggry: A variant form of braggery. Obsolete.
conyngry: An obsolete dialectal variant of conyger, itself an obsolete term meaning “rabbit warren”.
gry: The smallest unit in Locke’s proposed decimal system of linear measurement, being the tenth of a line, the hundredth of an inch, and the thousandth of a (“philosophical”) foot. Also the grunt of a pig, an insignificant trifle, or a verb meaning to roar. Obsolete.
iggry: Egyptian colloquial Arabic pronunciation of ijri: “Hurry up!”, brought back after the First World War by members of British and Australian forces who had fought in Egypt.
meagry: Having a meagre appearance. Obsolete.
nangry: A variant form of angry. Obsolete.
podagry: Dodder, or the condition of a plant infested with it.
puggry: A variant form of puggree, a light turban or head-covering worn by inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent.
It’s a pretty meagre (or meagry) selection ...

mmmkay. Do any of those other words count?
Language :)

The first two sentences have no bearing on the question. They are used for misdirection.
