In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.
I am willing to wager that over 75% of the new words that appeared were nothing more than spelling errors that caught on.

hi MathsIsFun,

Great puzzle, but tough for me.  Only got 9 so far!  Not worth hiding yet.

later:  17, half way.

### Re: 7 D in the W

Sorry for peaking but I think 4 H of the A is only partially correct,Bob.

But you did all of them!!! Congrats!

### Re: 7 D in the W

hi Stefy,

I had a little help from my friends.

What is wrong with 4 H of the A  ?

Apart from the obvious that I wouldn't like to meet them.

I almost forgot what that phrase means.

Ok,then. I think the others are ok,too. This is interesting. Wonder if MIF has more of these he would like to post.

It comes from a song.  Google is one of my friends.  Well done.

I hope you get them all, because I've forgotten what one of the answers is.  Oh dear!

Oh OK.  Don't cry.

It had a meaning when I typed it but, by the time I had done the others it had gone.
