What is the meaning of "odd words?" I read a sentence "Which word is the odd one out?" I have tried to look up it in the dictionary. There are several meanings, i.e. unconnected, peculiar/strange... etc.
Let me guess. The sentence means that I have to find a word which is not connected with others.
Odd words = words that are peculiar ... is the meaning right?
The odd one out is the one that doesn't belong. For example,
The word gather is the odd one out. It starts with a hard /g/ sound. The others start with a soft /g/ sound.
Here's another. Which word is the odd one out?
- trade mark
And another. Which number is the odd one out?
