I guess it's bot..ReplyDelete
bother, botany, bottom.
I question whether bot is a real word, and I question your clue of "adding" it...which definitely implies putting the new word on the end...
Bot - bot is short for robot. I guess it would workReplyDelete
Adding "bot" makes bother, botany, and bottom.ReplyDelete
Karnov, I thought bot was a word, and not just slang. Am I wrong?
I should have said Andy and Karnov in the last comment.ReplyDelete
Andy (and I mean just Andy this time), adding can take place in either direction. And misdirection just adds to the spice of the questions. I do admit, I went in the wrong direction when I saw this puzzle, too.
