Guess the word!

:funnylaugh: Sorry, Grondy, but it doesn't start with a p and end with a t. It's not a goulash or a conglomeration either.

Hint: starts with R.

Well polyglot would have worked :elfbiggrin:

Starts with R you say? Hmmm? A confused mixture? Hmmm? ruffle?

Nooo. The dictionary adds: often derogative.

Doesn't seem to quite fit the definition, but ragtag?

No, but very close. (perhaps it is old-fashioned by now, the dictionary I'm using is from the 80s)

Sorry Tommie, I can't find one that fits in mine. The G ending has got me, as I thought it might be 'ragout' and I couldn't find a definition for 'raging' which should have to do with anger; though with a double G middle it might work as 'ragging'. Still stumped. :elfconfused:

My dictionary (Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English) gives this definition for "ragbag". :question: I'm not really sure, it might have become rather old-fashioned by now. Sorry, I'll just start a new one with a word I am sure of. :)

I was actually looking for "leopard", but cheetah has about the same definition, so you get a nice icy woolly gem, Maydmarion. Careful, it's very cold.
