001 Archaicawful Assume As A Fact Crossword Image
Many people assume that the Crossword Puzzle is a simple game. The fact is that it is far more complex than that. You need to be able to think on your feet, and not be limited by what you "think" the answer to. This is one of the major benefits of learning to use a crossword puzzle instead of just guessing what word is correct. Also, it helps you learn how the correct word can apply to a situation rather than being a general word or phrase used throughout the puzzle.
One of the first things I taught my students back in the days was the art of the word search. Essentially, you're looking for all the right words in the puzzle but without finding them. It's like searching for a specific item in a store - you know the general name of the product but you can't find it. When you learn to understand the mechanics of a crossword puzzle, you start to see why the person who has been given the clue may not immediately see the word or phrase that you've clues in.
The first step to answering any crossword is to know the correct answer. Most people figure out the answer by guessing the word or phrase in the puzzle. They're wrong!
You have to assume that the person has given you the correct answer. Then, based on your assumption you must assume (based on the clues you've given) that they must have chosen the word that you've given them. You also have to assume that those particular words were on the board at the time they were given the clue. If you haven't noticed, the person who chose the incorrect words after you will usually choose the same words again.
Once you assume that you've guessed correctly, the next step is to guess what the correct answer is. You do this by selecting a letter and going through the grid. Sometimes the grid will be rearranged, especially if you have more than one letter to work with. In that case, you have to assume that you've chosen the correct words. Otherwise you have to guess again.
After you guess your answer, the person who gave you the clue will read it out loud. The reason for this is to test whether or not you really knew what you were answering. You don't have to actually hear it. What's more important is that you understand what they're saying. If they ask you another question and you don't understand their language, then your assumption was wrong. You have to assume that what they're saying makes sense.
Many people will assume a fact even when they don't know it. They'll assume that they were correct, when actually they weren't. It happens all the time. Have you ever watched people doing physical fitness exercises? When they finished they were lying on the floor, but you assumed that they were still running.
There are many more examples of people assuming facts when solving a crossword puzzle. Just make sure that you're not making these mistakes when you solve the crossword puzzle. Check your answers to make sure that you're guessing the right words. If your guess isn't right, then guess again. Only change your guess when your answer is right.
Another way to get the wrong answer is to assume that your audience will know words that you don't. For example, if you're solving a clue for an English class, assume that the reader knows the word "beef." The word beef is very unlikely to appear in any dictionary, and it just doesn't make any sense that someone would include it in a crossword puzzle. "Beef" is very unlikely to be used as a verb, either, so when you read "beef" in a puzzle, you'll have to look up the word in an English dictionary. This wastes time, and it can be embarrassing to read the answer and then realize that you were guessing the wrong word.
Another common assumption is that your clues should work for every possible answer. Let's assume that we're solving a mystery about ships at sea. We're looking for a list of ship names, and we assume that we've found a complete ship name. As we continue to solve the puzzle, we discover more names, and we have to rewrite our answer, changing it to fit these new listings. If we were to assume that we've discovered all ships on every boat, our solution would be incorrect almost every time.
Assumptions are dangerous because they lead us to give answers that may not really be right. When we work with words like "guess," "guess again," or "guess wrong," we are giving ourselves permission to change our answers to fit other words we find. These assumptions can come from our sources, such as newspapers, TV shows, and the internet. The internet is rife with these types of assuming. "It's not in the newspaper" is a commonly used assumption. We may even hear this assumption when we are fixing a crossword puzzle.
