Tanzen, could you possibly post your reasoning behind the answers as well please.

If nothing else it would help the rest of us to realise what mugs we've been!! [Big Grin]

Sorry, I was so stoked to (hopefully) get one that I just rushed in where angels colloquially fear to tread...

Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, East Timor, Brunei, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam .

These countries of course being South-East Asia...

Quite right 'couz, I didn't add the top brass in the list to be found because it could cause confusion.

In the British army it would be Field Marshall, and General of the Army in the US.

....

Ooops, I forgot to take my own advice and enter the rest of the chain.

Second Lieutenant
Lieutenant
Captain
Major
Lieutenant Colonel
Colonel
Brigadier
Major General
Lieutenant General
General

OK some clues-

1. There are 12 words in the sequence
2. The answers are not in English - In fact if we were doing it really properly they would not even be in English script and certainly not reading left to right!

Maybe a fresh look at this one will solve monkeycouzin's brain teaser.

Just a reminder that the assortment of letters to torture us all were as follows:

T,M,K,T,S,A,N,I,S,_,_,_

OK, some more clues

1. The answers are the English equivalent of an old language that is still spoken today

2. A quote from that language (in English) may also help - "The days of a man are numbered...."

Happy guessing

Darn! It isn't numbers in Hebrew...that was my thought.

Isn't books of the Torah either. I'm stumped for now

Neither of you have given us the full set of answers for the previous poser yet. Would one of you care to enlighten us.

Izzi, the sequence was the months of the Jewish year :

Tishri, Marheshvan, Kislev, Tevet, Shevat, Adar, Nisan, Iyar, Sivan and the missing three Tammuz, Av and Elul
OK? Now for Crisw's poser which was:

K, P, C, F, __ __

Thanks 'couz, I had already looked up the answers to satisfy my own curiosity, but it's good to have them confirmed here in the forums for everyone's benefit.
