I think the question is deceiving. You make it sound like an food item that would be mostly unique to Turkey and Greece, but yogurt is popular in many places. You are just setting people up to get this wrong.
+2
Level 74
May 13, 2021
yes, the question implies that yogurt is mainly found in greece and turkey which is def not true. It is true though that it originates from there (so maybe rephrase it?)

Level 22
Aug 18, 2018
Actually the correct spelling is yoğurt from Turkish. You foreigners always thinking you are right all of the time. It's like the French calling us "etas unis" .
+5
Level 74
May 6, 2021
No it isn't. That is an entirely different argument. In any case, they don't (it's Etats-Unis). Yoghurt is spelled (yes) with an h in English-speaking places outside the USA. What is clever about QM's tolerance is that he allows a 7-letter answer (yoghurt) in a 6-letter chain quiz.

I also noticed he allowed Sana for Sanaa (put the apostrophe wherever you like) in a 5-letter chain quiz I did recently.

So, in short, well done QM, in trying to pre-empt this bickering.

Certain words have automatic type-ins, as such Sana is accepted for Sana'a on any quiz.

Sorry for those who do not understand the concept of "word chain". If your desire answer match the clue, but its first letter is not the same as the previous one's last letter or its last letter is not the same as the next one's first letter, then your answer are WRONG. Don't keep asking for adding them unless it starts and ends with the same letters as the correct one.

That's the first time I've seen Dallas misspelled like that. Come to think of it, though, I can't recall ever seeing it misspelled but it obviously happens. I'm curious if that's the way it's spelled in another language or if it was just a poor attempt at spelling by trying to sound it out.

Had I known the name of the southernmost Japanese island it probably wouldn't have bothered me as much that there are two Japanese island questions in the same quiz. Also, if you don't want to repeat the mass migration word clue which appeared in the 6-letter vocabulary chain quiz a few days ago, you could replace it with Eccles cakes, Philly Eagles, white bird seen in US cattle pastures, etc. Just a thought.

Especially the Native American tribe, which I believe to be much harder for non-Americans than the Japanese islands combined.

When I get on a roll I always start tending to skip "double-typing" the chain letters...maybe accept a type-in for each word without the ending, or their first letter? Why is Riyadh accepted without the final "H" on other quizzes, but not here? I find that rather confusing. Also, why are there TWO questions about Japanese islands? And lastly, we spell yogurt here, either as "yoghurt" or "yogourt" along with other variations, so shrimp and shroud were impossible to answer, or even guess.
+1
Level 67
May 12, 2021
I wouldn't say that it is impossible to answer or guess 'shroud' when given the clue 'Turin religious artefact'. And neither shrimp nor shroud were affected by the inclusion or otherwise of the answer 'yogurt'

Why are you complaining about Japan getting two questions while the United States gets 5, some of which are much harder for non-American and non-Japanese to get than the Japanese questions?

^ Because the all of the quizzes that accept Riyadh without the "h" are wrong. The name of the city is Riyadh, not Riyad.

+2

May 12, 2021
Except, those are incorrect in this quiz.

This is a geography chain --- the correct answer must start with the last letter of the preceding word (Uganda) and the first letter of the word that follows (exodus).

Apache does that. Navajo and Paiute do not.
