The Great-Big-Huge-Enormous-Happy-Word-and-General-Knowledge-Feast

 

Here's your menu for the feast...

 

You have to find 50 words in this tasty menu.

 

47 of the one-word answers to the 50 clues and questions each have four or five letters. Two words have six letters each. One of the words uses all nine letters.

 

You may use only the letters in the square. You may not use any of the letters more than once in a word. The letter E may be used twice, because there are two in the square.

 

The first 49 answers are in alphabetical order. (Isn't it nice of me to help you with that clue?)

 

You might need your dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopaedia and a helpful friend.

 

OK? The feast has five courses. You can taste one at a time, if you like. If you're a glutton, you can demolish them all in one go. It might be a good idea if you read the warning near the bottom of this page.
