help me solve one of life’s great mysteries Posted by Luke Williams on March 2, 2007 in general thoughts | 6 comments a friday riddle for you… woman – man misses – mister miss – master lady – lord baroness – baron mistress – _______ ?? Any ideas? My best one so far is – mastress! HELP
Ahh so it’s getting late on a Sunday night and I found this site which may be of no use whatsoever to you…
Good job I did the search at home and not at work else I would be getting screamed at for looking at dodgy stuff!
Should it not me Mister?
Following the pattern of ‘ess’ being feminine, Mayor – Mayoress.
Mister > Misteress > Mistress
English has never been my strong point.
looks like “consort” is the correct answer. Five points and a scone to James… which reminds me, Mr P I owe you a prize for last years points
Ah yes the prize ! I had forgotten about that…
well i’m only thinking of my safety
