I have found 12 seven letter words ending in “cle” that might be reasonably likely to arise in ordinary conversation/discussion or in writing etc. Your challenge is to name as many of the 12 words as you can for one point each. I am aware that there are a number of valid words and you can list as many as you like - but only ones in my list of 12 of the commonest will count. Proper nouns/words that begin with a capital letter and hyphenated words or words containing apostrophes or slang words are not allowed. Foreign words will count provided they are in common use in English language. It would be a great help to me in checking entries if you can list your words in alphabetical order. No use of reference material or the internet of course to ensure fair play. Good luck.
REMEMBER - NO POSTS instead you PM me with your guesses any time up to midnight tonight. If possible, please wait until you've completed all the guesses you want to make to avoid too many PMs and to make my job easier. So no hurry and it doesn't matter when you submit the answers because I'll be judging them solely on who has the most correct - and in the event of two or more being level it will be a tie. I hope this is clear and good luck. Tomorrow I’ll post the names of the top entries.
