Glad I'm not the only one. It's hard isn't it but I haven't given up yet.

No you're not, Mort.    I can't do it either.   :girl_sad:

Practice will, er, do something.  Mind you, we have that connections type quiz introduced by Victoria Coren Mitchell on most Mondays.  I have yet to get a single question correct!!!


In today’s NY puzzle , why is Ad a tennis score?  Never heard it in my life.  Adv, yes, but not Ad.
To express oneself
In 17 syllables
Is very diffic

Is it another Americanism, perhaps?
There often use American spellings on Wordle too.

Americanism - Ad = Advantage

Well that's it .... I'm not American. No wonder I can't do it.

Like I said,  its the same with American spellings in Wordle sometimes too.
It bugs me a bit,  but there again, it's an American site, so they are bound to use American language.   :)
