One minute for the quiz and another minute to figure out that people abbreviate parachute to chute. I was quite confused, thinking a laundry chute is somehow abbreviated. Chuticle?

You need to watch Point Break (or most other parachute films!)

“Pull the chute, Bodhi!”

Thanks for accepting "aeroplane" but isn't "airplane" a shortening of "aeroplane"? Feels odd to have a shortening as the displayed answer.

Also I got stuck on "methylamine" and "methadone" for "meth". Are these incorrect? Not sure.

I've now completed the entire Word Games series!

"Till" is not a shortening of "until". Rather, "until" relates to "till" in the same way that "unto" relates to "to".

Changed it to ‘Til for now. Will see if I can find a replacement.
