    Time magazine conducted a competition ...People should write a sentence said by "Tom swift"

    For instance,

    Time consists of past, present and future said Tom tensely.....
    In the above sentence past , present and future represents timing sense but also Tense .....(nice naa)

    I hav an eg even in tamil :
    " Indraikku roja poothirunthuchi" endraan Murugan MALARCHIYAGA...
    "vaalai pazhlam vangi vaa" endraan Murugan KANIVAAGA....

    Il's why dont WE try???????

    Punning !

    Hi
    Tamil Magazines usually run contests for things like this. Off hand I can remember one prize winning entry, i think in Vikatan:

    "Thanjavur mappillai pidicchirukka enru kettal, thalai aattinaal aval "

    Readers Digest also used to have a page of such word games.
    Example": " I wanted to be an electrician, but the course fee was shocking. "

    There are also websites that have such word games.

    I didn't understand...

    Hi Nalini,

    Am afraid, I didn't understand the concept behind this word magic game. Can you explain to me a bit in detail and with more examples ?

    Love,
    Preethi

    hii preethi:wave

    Let me explain you clearly....
    Let me consider the same example for you to understand...
    Time consist of past , present and future said Tom tensely...
    In the above sentence ,Tense is a Grammar word which represents present tense ,past tense and future tense
    Even time represent past(my olden days),present(i am doing a work),and future(i will be posting puzzles).....
    Even though we have two seperate meanings we relate those things and form a sentence with a double meaning..(that is the special in this word game)

    if you know tamil here is one more eg:
    "Neeti muzhlakadhae" endraan murugan surukkamaaga(long sentence in small approach)
    "vadai:) suvayagaa irundhadhu" endraan murugan medhuvaaga(medhu vadai)

    I think so you understood!!!(if not please pardon me!!!)
