1. If I was ever a contestant on the show, at the top of my list of things to brush up on would be Latin roots…it comes in handy again and again on Jeopardy, especially the final.When I saw the category today, medieval science, I thought..’ this could be hard’, but then there’s avibus, plural of avis..bird. No knowledge of medieval science necessary.

• “avis” means “grandparents ” in Latin. BIRD (sing.) = AVEM, BIRDS (plural) = AVIUM.

• AVIBUS is the dativ of AVEM

Got it right away, thanks to my knowledge of Latin and birds. I’ll be able to learn more about Mirza and his background tonight, as choir season is over and I will be home to watch the show tonight.

3. I was a little surprised in th Jeopardy round, when, in “It’s hyphenated”, they showed a photo while Alex read, “Steer clear of the creature shown here, the Portuguese this.” The response given, and ruled correct, was “What is man-of-war?” I had never heard it called that, always instead hearing “man-o-war” (no “f”). I was expecting them to return from commercial and reverse their ruling. When they didn’t, I looked it up, and to the best I can tell, “man o’ war” is the primary name, but it is “also known as” a “man-of-war”. Which now makes me wonder if they would have ruled “man o’ war” incorrect, as it appears that when it’s pronounced without the “f”, it’s almost never hyphenated.

I also learned that it’s unique in its pluralization, as more than one is typically referred to as “men-of-war”, but in a way, it’s already a “plural”, as it’s a colonial organism, and not a single organism like a jellyfish.

There—I’ve done my learning for the day. 😊

• Man -of- war was also what the Royal Navy called their 2 and 3 deckers in the 18th and 19th century. Just a little tidbit.

4. Did I miss something? What was the answer to the clue in photography about the metal that was used in developing photographs?

• Silver. (Silver nitrate is not a metal, that’s why it was ruled incorrect.)
