English Teacher Article The Myth of 3 Words Ending in 'GRY'

| | 86 Comments

There are three words ending with 'gry'.

1. hungry
2. angry

What is the third one? Is it there? And if yes, what is it?

It amazes me that so may people are given this question as students of the English language. Forums everywhere are continuously battered by the continual question "What is the 3rd word ending in GRY?".

Why do teachers continually rely on material such as this when there are so many other examples that could be given? The dictionary.com forum suggests that they get a new question about this single topic about once a week from yet another perplexed learner.

If you happen to be one of them, you can find the answer here.

If not, then do everyone a favour and never ask anyone this question, ever! :-)

do you know the answer coz it is really bugging me. is there a third word?

the third word is language. You have to read the riddle carefully. "The English Language" is part of the riddle. (the third word is language)
hope this helps you!

Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it?

The answer is 'language'. The key sentences are the second and third. If you just read those two, the answer is obvious. The first sentence is a ruse to throw you off. 'Language' is the only answer that fits the hints that follow those two sentence.

So, all the searching in dictionaries is pointless. I hope you'll pass this information along. Before I finally discovered the correct phrasing of the question and the answer, I looked there and did not find a satisfying answer.

The answer to this riddle is wrong. When asked "What is the third word?" the third word is not language - it's three. If the answer was language, the question would have been written as such: "There are three words in The English Language." The English Language must stand out as initial capped, underlined, or italicized. Without it being written this way, there is no way the third word can be language because language comes in as the eighth word. I don't know who "created" this riddle, but they sure wasted a lot of people's time.

But language doesn't end in gry!!!!! how does it make sense??

There are two separate pieces to the riddle. When it says that there are three words in "the english language" it meant the number of words between the quotes--THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE is three words long. Then it asks for the third word. The first is THE, the second is ENGLISH and the third word is LANGUAGE. There are too many variations of the riddle out there and overall it is just a waste of time. There are many words that end in "gry" but in this riddle that was just in the first part and was meant to throw you off.

The riddle wasn't written very well. But the original stated that there
are three words in, 'the English language'. The part were it goes on about
ending in gry has nothing to do with it. there are quite a few words that
end in gry, its only there to throw you off.

So the third word in the phrase 'the English language' is language.


Hope that helps.

Does anyone know for sure?!
Its bugging me !!

Interestingly, the third -gry word is "gry" itself, which means "\Gry\, n. [Gr ? syllable, bit.] 1. A measure equal to one tenth of a line. [Obs.] --Locke.

2. Anything very small, or of little value. [R.]" - source: www.dictionary.com

the answer is THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE

Unfortunately, all of you are incorrect but I won't hold it against you. I read the column by Marylan Vos Sevant who stated that there is no answer to the riddle except for what you have already comented on. Of course she is as wrong as everybody else (I have found another instance where she was incorrect on a numbers problem) so don't feel bad. The correct answer is gry. It did take me two whole days to figure it out. If you use a word program to view the question you will notice that only three words are italisized, Angry, hungry and gry. But if you put your cursor onto each of these words you will also find out that (or should if it was typed correctly) the period following hungry is not italisixed but the one following gry is making 'gry.' the third word. And since everybody knows what it means and everybody uses -abbreviations- every day, gry. means the color gray. Hope this finally settles the question.

pascalore@bellsouth.net

this riddle is really buggin me there cant be a third sooooo plzz tell me wot it is

scavengry. its an obsolete word however.

Does it matter?

I think that "gry" sounds right.. but "Language" did also sound like a perfect answer. I hate this riddle. Damn it to hell.

OK WHAT THE HECK IS THE RIGHT ANWSER HERE. BUGGING THE HECK OUT OF ME. THIS IS TUPID IF THERE IS NOT A RIGHT ANWSER HERE. I THINK LANAUAGE SOUNDS RIGHT. GRY WAS TO THROW YOU OFF

Stupid english people....

this is really making me mad please tell me the answer. because when you think about it, there are lots of words that end in gry. maybe that really wasn't part of the original riddle.

i got it its gry which gry is a word"\Gry\, n. [Gr ? syllable, bit.] 1. A measure equal to one tenth of a line. [Obs.] --Locke.

2. Anything very small, or of little value. [R.]" - source: www.dictionary.com

u STUPID ppl language does not end with gry wich is the main thing the stupid riddle askes 4 geez

Pascalore? Eh.. I believe you are wrong.

This riddle isn't actually to find out what the third word is that has 'gry' at the end. It's to see if you are bright enough to figure out that they are asking "what is the third word in 'The english language?'" The whole 'gry' part is to throw you off. It's like a TAKS test (or test you take at the end of a school year) where they give you extra information that will only throw you off of the REAL problem. It'll just confuse you. Everyone is so wrapped up in trying to find another word that ends with 'gry' when, if they they really look at the riddle, they'll be able to figure it out. Let me show you.

This is the riddle - Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it?

Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. (END OF SENTECE! New sentence now >) There are three words in the English Language. (This has nothing to do with the '-gry' thing. Next sentence >) What is the third word? (Everyone thinks this goes back to the '-gry'. It doesn't! This sentence pertains to the sentence before it. There are three words in the Enlish Language, what is the third word (think of it that way) The third word is Language.)) Every one knows what "language" means. Everyone uses it everyday. (they speak everyday is what it means. To speak, you must speak a language.) Look closely, I have already given you the third word. (Have you seen another word ending in '-gry'? No. And "Gry" is not a word, OR an abb. for Gray.)
(last sentence) What is it?

If you don't get it now.. you're hopeless and beyond any help.

that was so easy it ain't funny. actually it was i'm still laughing (GRY!!!) HA HA

i DON`T GET iT!!!
THERE iS NO OTHER WORD...
PLEASE EXPLAiN...

The answer is three.
It is the third word in the question, and the rest of the question is irrelevant: a red herring designed to put the solver off.

Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it?

The answer to this riddle is "language" as said before. If you listen to the riddle. It says Angry and Hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. THEN it says There are 3 words in THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE. It never puts emphasis on that there are 3 GRY words IN The English Language. 2 seperate sentences equals 2 seperate subjects. That is why the riddle works. The answer is LANGUAGE.

the answer is what.

look...

angry and hungry are two words in the english language that and in gry. what is the third word. the word is something that everyone uses everyday. if you havelistened to me carefully, i have already told you what it is.

the question state the "what" is the third word, then it asks for the third word again. Again thia version needs to be spoken to be effective

there is another passible answer..

there are three words in the english language that end in gry. one is angry and the other is hungry. everyone knows what the third one means and what its stands for. everyone uses them everyday. and if you listen to me carefully i've given you the third word. what is it?
the answr is three.
it is the third word in the question, and the rest of the question is irrelevant: a red herring designed to put the solver off

that's all..

The question "What words can you name that end in '-gry'?" was first posed in the 1950's when there were loads of words that ended '-gry'. Since that time, all the '-gry' words have become obsolete apart from 'hungry' and 'angry' so the question was altered sometime in the 1970's to become a trick question.

Most of the 124 obsolete '-gry' words that I list below were in the 1933 edition of the Oxford English Dictionary, and all have appeared in some major dictionary of English in the past:

I think, I would go for Shanny's explaination...I think that answers the question best. Shanny,you are the best...;p

There is no answer to be given in the said question, but I guest here are some probably answer:
There are actually more words in the English language that end in "-gry." Here's a list:
Aggry -Applied to a kind of variegated glass beads of ancient manufacture
Ahungry -A Shakespearean variant of "hungry"
Puggry -A light scarf wound around a hat or helmet to protect the head from the sun [in India]
Braggry - A variant form of braggery. Obsolete.
Conyngry - An obsoletes dialectal variant of conyger, itself an obsolete term meaning \'rabbit warren\'.
Gry - The smallest unit in Locke\'s proposed decimal system of linear measurement, being the tenth of a line, the hundredth of an inch, and the thousandth of a (\'philosophical\') foot. Also the grunt of a pig, an insignificant trifle, or a verb meaning to roar. Obsolete.
Iggry - Egyptian colloquial Arabic pronunciation of ijri: \'Hurry up!\', brought back after the First World War by members of British and Australian forces who had fought in Egypt.
Meagry - Having a meagre appearance. Obsolete.
Nangry - A variant form of angry. Obsolete.
Podagry - Dodder, or the condition of a plant infested with it.
Puggry - A variant form of puggree, a light turban or head covering worn by inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent.

Cartoon on the question http://xkcd.com/c169.html

I think that the third word is "Language". Because everyone in the world uses angry or hungry, whether they say it or whether they feel it, and feeling is a language a body language. And you do react to your feeling.

my answer about dis 3 words end with GRY is 1st ANGRY 2ND HUNGRY and the 3word is GRYPHON
other said dat question is improper its because there is no 3word ends with GRY so the answer is GRYPHON

The question states: Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it? HOW ABOUT "HUNGRY". "Angry" is the first word, "and" is the second word and "hungry" is the third word.

i seriously cant imagine..so many people cudnt find d answer..
the answer is "UNANGRY"...n yes..its a word..check it in wordweb if u want..

Oh man, I didnt even realize. Now it makes perfect sense. The first sentence doesnt even apply to the question....

Yo, it is frustrating and if u read it carefully u will see that it says - "We use it everyday and we know what it means." Get it we use ENERGY everyday no matter what we do. Also u all know what it means, so therefore the word is ENERGY.

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.
"Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them " is a mind tricking question.It just to divert your concentration from thinking of the answer.
Meanwhile this is the actual question forwarded "There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day "..
The Question start from " There are only three words in ( the English language ). What is the (third)
word?
Merely the answer was " LANGUAGE " because everyone use their own LANGUAGE everyday,so the creator of this puzzle just wanted this to work out in any part of the world as long as the people who reads it know The English Language.ha,aha,aha..I guess..
If you notice it never asked what is the third word ending with -GRY. It says Angry and Hungry are only two them ( diverting your aim)...follow by.There are only three words in the English language.. What is the third word in The English Language.( The actual question)
I guess if the creator of this puzzle just looked at the one side of the riddle but then he/she never thought of the other sides of grammer/words which makes sense at one point and never at all at the other side of the picture...So it goes fair and fair..No Losing No Winning..God Bless..


there is infact a third word ending in 'gry'
it is gry itself

'gry' means to rage or roar

there is your answer

=D hope this gets the puzzle off your minds

The version i had was...

There are three words in the English language that end in 'gry'. ONE is angry and the other is hungry. EveryONE knows what the third ONE means and what it stands for. EveryONE uses them everyday, and if you've listened very carefully, I've given you the third word. What is it?


Any ideas people?

the word is energy...if you read carefully it says the third ends in gry but it doesn't say that the exact spelling is 'rgy' that is the catch.hope this helps

i got the one with the capital "ONE" in it. the answer is three, because it hints to you that it is a number (with the capital ONE in it) and also it is the third word of the sentence.

people have been getting different versions of this riddle. the answer is that there is no main answer because there are more than 3 words in the english language that end in gry. so really everybody is right in what they are saying. its just because the questions are rephrased.

hope this helps

x.x.x.x.x

Thank you SO much Shanny! You made this make so much sense. There have been so many versions of this riddle. HERE IS HOW THE REAL RIDDLE GOES!!!!! Angry and hungry end in "gry". There are 3 words in "the english language". What is the third one? THE ANSWER IS (LANGUAGE)!! People have just meased with this riddle and screwed up the wording. If you read the original riddle,(like the one above) this would have been a good riddle and would'nt have confused so many people.

i'm confuzzled.

i'v studied this quesrtion and many people think of many different answers but the answer is one of two 'three' or 'langauge'. when asking the Question it is all about HOW it is asked!

i beleieve the right answer to be 'Language' as it it the third word in the phrase of 'the english language'. if i tell you there are three words in that what is the thrid one then you know the answer?

but whomever wrote the riddle didn't realise that in the sentance 'there are three words in the english langauge' that three could also be used as an answer as it is the thrid word in the sentance.

in conclusion "THREE" AND "LANGUAGE" are correct but the puzzle is to see how a person respondes t the riddle.

I think all of you are right in a certain way! Shanny took a different approach to this problem and saw that it wasn't just about the answer but how you arrived at the answer. It isn't to just find the word its to analize the situation using a different approach.

Well Shanny thanx for helping......all the other ppl who are going on about GRY being the third word and other odd words from the 1950's.....not everyone knows what these words mean, and I certainly don't use them everyday or even care what they stand for!!! So that wouldn't work either. Come on ppl read Shanny's breakdown of the riddle and then argue!!!

i have been studying this riddle for ages and i mean ages a whole 2 mins!!!!!! but i now know the actual word for the riddle is....... it is pretty easy so you should get it but the word is....................................................................................................................................E................................................N................................................E................................................R................................................G................................................Y.................................................................................................H................................................A.................................................................................................H................................................A.................................................................................................H................................................A...............................................................................................................................LOL I'TS TRUE '.' OMFG!!!!!!

the word is energy '.'

You know what is really funny is thinking about how the person who wrote the original riddle would get a kick out of this because of how many
seemingly good answers to 1 simple riddle and most of all the Huge controversy this has caused worldwide......lol
but i guess everyone is right in a kind of way because the question appears in many different forms and there is a correct answer
for each one of them.... the problem was never what was the wrong answer....... but simply what is the right question!!!

I'm still laughing at the idiot that thought the answer is "ENERGY". That DOES NOT end in -gry.
Jeremy take a bow dude for your sheer idiocy.

wow. im 16 years old and i got the answer. thats pretty sad.
the question is NOT asking for gry. thats to throw you off.
its not hard, you shouldnt have to think for this question.
its common sense.

"angry and hungry are two words that end in gry. there are three
words in the english language. what is the third word? everyone
knows what it means and everyone uses it everyday. look closely
and i have already given you the third word, what is it ?"

there asking WHAT IS THE THIRD WORD.
the answer is HUNGRY.

"The English Language." the third word in that phrase is "Language"
The rest is a smoke screen to lead you off the path. I am not even going
to mention them as you will get fixated with them and be led astray again.

Simple

This is the riddle - Angry and hungry are two words that end in '-gry'. There are three words in the English language. What is the third word? Everyone knows what it means and everyone uses it every day. Look closely and I have already given you the third word. What is it?


read the real riddle all of you carefully...Above
If you change it, maybe the answer will change also..

I have heard this riddle before - and I must confess never did listen very carefully and didn't really care what the answer was.

But after reading all the posts above it is quite obvious. The answer has been spelled out time and time again. A number of people have gone to great pains to break the question down and explain it all over and over again.

It saddens me enormously that we have so many people that can read and write enough English to respond and yet still have have absolutely no idea.

Is this a reasonable sample of the human race? Are you people considered A reasonable example of normal people or has this article attracted a larger than statistically reasonable number of morons?

If there is just one more person that goes on about -GRY words I will explode and cease to exist.

There is no way I will once again repeat what has been stated so eloquently above. But, If you are in any doubt as to what I think the answer is then read the next sentence.

What is the the third word in THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE?

Will someone just give me the answere.

Think of words ending in "-gry". "Angry" and "hungry" are two of them. There are only three words in "the English language." What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.
The answer is language.
It is the third word of "the English language". The question needs to be spoken, otherwise the quotation marks give away the trick. This version apparently originated in 1996.


or

There are three words in the English language that end in the letters g-r-y. Two are "hungry" and "angry." Everyone knows what the third word means, and everyone uses it every day. What is the third word?
The answer is energy.
The question asks for a word ending with the three letters g-r-y, but does not stipulate that they must be in that order.


just think of it
until you die.
^_^

i agree!

It's very difficult...

I don't knnow the answer tell ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

someone should make a word i will ingry it mean's to push something or someone over as in " HEY don't ingry me" or "they ingry your glass and it broke"
so start to use it

:D
from holly warner

lol every1 the answer is simple and it can only only be ENERGY

lol. I guess so far the most possible answer is the "LANGUAGE". But, I was confused with the other version that has the answer of "three". There are also words that ends in g-r-y. not just energy. I'm not certain what the words are, but I believe there is even one word. Please, would somebody explain to me why the answer of a version is "three" and please explain to me also the one with capitalized ONE version.

ty

kel

to Shammy: Actually, you're wrong in your claim that "gry" isn't a word, it's already been defined hundreds of times for you to see.

the answer is "GRY"...hmmm!!!!!!!!!!!!look the meaning of gry in dictionay,,that is the third word,..

Lol... this one makes me sooo angry! Bradley!

...i get it already ...hahah
ENERGY ???? what a answer ????
bobo..

The question was.....What is the third word "the english language"?
So the Answer is....."Language"

WOW! I just stumbled upon this thread... hard to believe this is even a debate. It's too bad so many people who profess to speak english know so little about *language*

The third word is "energy". it states that the third word ends in "gry" but it doesn't state that it has to be in that order. And so it's energy and everyone knows what energy is :) for the people that think its the word "language" it is not because that answer is for a different riddle that has the same wording as this riddle but asks a different question.

Actually the word is Fungry - I jsut coined it today the 28th May 2011. It descirbed this particular situation which is trying to be funy but makes a person angry so hence not funny but fungry. So I am angry and also hungry and better leave before I get fungry.

you are so wrong its fungry

I too don't now what the third word which end with gry so pls give me the answer

the question is what is the third word in THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE that end with -gry..... as u can see clearly that the third word is language that's the answer to this riddle!! seriously think aboutr it!!!!!!!!!

the spelling of color not gry but gray so there are only two words,angry & hungry ends with gry.

A number of dictionaries give aggry, a type of glass bead.

it's just Gry guys. Not language, just GRY. GRY is the third word...google GRY
