tMP word quiz

How many words beginning with 't' and containing the letters 't', 'm' and 'p' in that order (though obviously not adjacent to each other!) can you think of (i.e. 'tamper, temper etc. - there's two for a start)

A very quick look through the dictionary gives a score of 31 to beat! (I'm sure that'll be beaten!)

No need to PM, just a bit of fun, post your answers here if you wish.

No words requiring a capital letter to begin, no words requiring a hyphen, no plurals ending in 's',

Good luck!

Ah-ha! Hope it went well! Mind you you're talking to someone who (in the days when these exams had different titles) managed to fail his O Level Maths three times! :)

Not in the dictionary (my one, anyway, but it is very old!). But a word similar sounding to 'tampura' does exist.....

Still, if it's in the modern dictionary, then fine by me! ;-)

I can see the target of 31 being easily beaten at this rate! (I haven't got a full list, I just had a quick whizz through the dictionary, as I said ;-))
