Categories Aviation

Welcome aboard, fearless aviators! Get ready to take your wordplay to new heights with our high-flying game of “Categories” in the world of aviation. Buckle up and prepare for a linguistic adventure that will have you soaring through the alphabet in style!

  • Rule #1: The Letter Leap
    Our virtual spinning wheel is your ticket to adventure. Give it a whirl and let the alphabet decide your destiny. Once the wheel picks the letter, consider it your aviation call sign for this round. From Alpha to Zulu, the skies are yours to conquer!
  • Rule #2: Navigating the Categories Clouds
    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to dive into different aviation categories. From airport code to duty free article, aircraft parts to airline, let your imagination take flight. But beware of turbulence – only one word per category will earn you those precious points.
  • Rule #3: Points in the Sky
    Now, let’s talk about scoring, the true essence of our airborne word adventure.

An empty field gets you a big fat NIL, but fear not, there are clouds of points to be earned:

A valid field: 5 points – a smooth touchdown on the scoring runway.

A unique valid field: 10 points – a precision approach that sets you apart from the pack.

The solo flyer with a unique valid field: 20 points – the Top Gun of word warriors, leaving all others in awe.

So, fasten your seatbelts, put your tray tables in the upright position, and let the word games take flight. May your vocabulary soar to new heights, and may the best aviator win! Fly high, play hard, and enjoy the ride, Captain Lexicon!



Alphabet Trivia Fun

And because we promised you more fun on our Categories Aviation block here is some useless knowledge about the alphabet:

  • The alphabet has 26 letters, but there are more than 40 different sounds in the English language, leading to sometimes unusual spelling rules.
  • The longest English word spelled without repeating a letter is “uncopyrightable.”
  • The word “alphabet” comes from the first two letters of the Greek alphabet: Alpha and Beta.
  • The letter “Q” is the only letter not found in any U.S. state name in the traditional alphabet.
  • The word “typewriter” can be typed using only the top row of letters on the keyboard.
  • The longest consecutive string of vowels in a single word in English is found in the word “sequoia.”
  • The letter “E” is the most frequently used letter in the English language, while “Z” is the least used.
  • The words “bookkeeper” and “bookkeeping” are the only English words with three consecutive double letters.
  • The shortest complete sentence in English that uses every letter of the alphabet is: “The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog.”
