For PLM, my first instinct was palm fruit, because I study environmental science in college and palm oil is the talk of the day :/

So his is what it's like to read Arabic that doesn't use any vowels.

Level 73
Nov 30, 2019
Basically. As a native Arab speaker this felt easy for me but i think it was easy for everyone. Btw we do have 3 vowels that we write for extended syllables, such as in Moon or Leech or Lamb.

It's like that in Hebrew too. And some words are the same just with different vowels. Which makes it confusing. This quiz was easy for me because of Hebrew.

Um, Arabic does have vowels: fatha ( َ) ,kasra ( ِ), and damma ( ُ).

Those vowels are not written in daily usage. They are normally only used in the Quran and in children's books.

I don't think coconut is a fruit, it's a nut
+9
Level 45
Oct 11, 2019
A coconut is a fibrous one-seeded drupe. A drupe is a FRUIT with a hard stony covering enclosing the seed like a peach or olive. The term "coconut" can refer to the whole coconut palm, the seed, or the fruit, which botanically is a drupe, not a nut.

Isn't there a fruit called a bilberry? Should be an alternative to blueberry.
+1
Level 64
Nov 30, 2019
Yep, I tried bilberry first and was surprised it didn't accept, because it fitted. I would suggest making bilberry an acceptable answer.
+12
Level 65
Nov 30, 2019
I refuse to believe that "bilberry" came to mind before "blueberry."

Level 77
Nov 30, 2019
@Elan - Surprisingly, many plants are only native to specific areas of the world. While shipping and cultivation can introduce these plants or their products to new areas, they might still not be as well-known in those areas as plants that are already native there. Thus, while blueberries are quite well-known in North America, where they are native, the closely-related bilberry may quite possibly be more well-known in many areas of their native Europe.

it came to my mind before blueberry, I think I might have read too much Enid Blyton as a child, and not eaten enough blueberry muffins

I agree with enismirdal. Bilberry is just as valid as blueberry.

Anyone else who didn't know half of the answers because you just call them in your native language? For example, i didn't know what a tangerine was until i looked it up and realised i was literally eating one at the time.

I only knew it because it's one of the ingredients in Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce. (I'm a label-reader due to family members with food allergies and an unfamiliar ingredient always makes me do more research on it to make sure it's safe.)

Got them all but why in the clue is the Y missing from blueberry and cranberry. Y isn't a vowel, well not in the English language anyway
+5
Level 78
Nov 30, 2019
It can be. I think in this case, the 'y' in blueberry or in cranberry would be a vowel.

Level 54
Dec 1, 2019
A,E,I,O,U, and sometimes Y is the how the English vowels work.
+2
Level 56
Jun 13, 2022
Y is a vowel when it sounds like a vowel, usually a long “e” as in berry or long “i” as in thyme. A vowel is “A speech sound, such as (ē) or (ĭ), created by the relatively free passage of breath through the larynx and oral cavity, usually forming the most prominent and central sound of a syllable.” Y is a consonant when it sounds like it does in “yellow.” A consonant is “a speech sound that is articulated with complete or partial closure of the vocal tract.”

Would Agave not be appropriate as an answer?
+1
Level 64
Dec 3, 2019
I agree, tried spelling it 20 different ways before giving up. I think it should be acceptable as it fits all of the criteria
+2
Level 79
Nov 20, 2020
I would have said that agave is not technically a fruit, but the plant itself.
+1
Level 19
Dec 21, 2020
Agave is technically not a fruit, because a fruit is the thing that holds the seeds. Since there is no seeds in the agave's sugar, I don't think it's a fruit.

Level 52
Apr 10, 2023
In English, "y" mostly represents a vowel and seldom a consonant. It counts as a vowel in words like "blueberry" or "monkey" but a consonant in "yacht" or "beyond" (although in the second case, it is technically a "semi-vowel" or a "vowel-like consonant").

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Y

but wtf is a "date"???

Level 39
Apr 12, 2023
I'm surprised how many people are questioning why agave doesn't work, when if they actually just checked with a quick Google search, they'd know it definitely isn't a fruit, but a large leafy, completely fruit-less plant.

Agave syrup comes from the sap of the plant.

Although I'm also the person who had to leave "lime" to the end despite getting tamarind, so I don't claim to be the smartest either :D
