Welcome to our latest quiz, No 51. In each case, there are two clues, sometimes a third, and all you need to work out what the two words are and glue them together to make the new word.

Example: My teacher said I must work, NOT BEFORE tea-time, to improve my arithmetic skills.
NOT BEFORE = AFTER + arithmetic skills = MATH : AFTER + MATH = AFTERMATH.

So, go on, Have a go! Entries should be in by Friday, September 11th, 2015 Good Luck.
