Not that I set the rules... and who needs no steenkin rules...

but surely we're looking for words with the sound of the number, not simply the number. Otherwise 6ty, 7ty etc...

In that vein I'll offer: 5orite

Or either 5el Mousekwitz if you pronounce Doc C's submission with something other than an Aussie or some variety of UK accent.

Huh? seems like I lost a post here. Gee..
I answered doc_comfort:

Yes, this is not about numbers, but just like Victor Borge does.( good show, zed )( see zed's little up- link ) Numbers hidden in words. In this case up front of the word. So tsuwm's 3ting and Jackie's 2ting count, but the others are not exactly right.
Then I asked: But pray, doc-comfort, what is fivorite?

Maybe I forgot to submit it. I've got a snowy brain these days.

You got me stumped, Bran. What the heck is threeting?

I think "fivorite" is not a mineral, but an alternate pronunciation of "favorite".

We'll have a barrel full primate trouble basing a game on pronunciation!

The only thing I can find for 3 is 3p, and I still am fuzzy on what it means...

I said 3ping, with a link; I don't know where 3ting came from, unless Bran was expanding on 1ting.

No, no expanding on 1ting. I made a mistake. You said 3ping and that is a very valid word. It wasn't even a typo, just an ERROR> shame on me!........
