Today's word is riddle, spelled 'R I D D L E'. Riddle is a noun that means in miss leading or puzzling question posed as a problem to solved or guest.a conundrum or enigma'. 'Riddle' also means something or someone difficult to understand. Here is the word used to a sentence from the clarion lidger by Clara  books are for children who like misterm and riddle and there are many scenes where readers hold their breath in secpense. It's not unusual for words tire and lose meanings over time and 'riddle' is no exception. Old English speakers who had a variety of spellings for 'riddle' used the word as we do today to describe a question posed as a problem to be solved or guest. But they also used it in the now obsolete senses of council, consideration, debate, conjuction, interpretation, imagation, and example. Not surprisingly, the old English source of the word 'riddle' is a couse to the old English word meaning 'to interpret, or to advice'. By the beginning of the fifteenth century, 'riddle' inquired the sense of 'a puzzling or perlexing thing' and in the seventeenth century it also came to refer to 'a puzzling person or being'.
