Can you name it?
please tell us
This is an easy one: “shibboleth”.
It’s slipping away from me. It starts with an S and comes from the story in which one tribe ousts someone as being from another tribe (I think Benyamin) because they ask them to pronounce THIS word, and they say the shin like a sin, right?
I’ve forgotten the word, though.
NCB: You didn’t see the two posts preceding your own?
Joseph, the Mods let through dash’s post, mine and NCB’s at the same time. So he couldn’t have seen our posts before he wrote his.
Sometimes the CR gets a little confusing like that…
Thanks, golfer. Yeah I was worried that would happen. Makes me look kind of dumb now.
