If you have never heard of the term “crossword”, you might be surprised to learn that it is not a word used to describe a word you’ve already thought of.
The term refers to a piece of paper that is used to solve crosswords, but is often associated with a series of letters that form a word.
“When I first heard about it, I thought it was some kind of joke.
And I thought, ‘It’s so silly’,” said Ms Hines.
“Then I thought: ‘I can do it, what can I do?
I don’t need to think about it.'”
Ms Hine, who works in marketing at a business development firm, first discovered the word after an internship at the company that developed the popular crossword puzzle game “Bingo”.
Ms Hinema-Bouvier, who was studying business development, said that it was a “fantastic experience”.
“It was a fun thing to do,” she said.
The word “cross” was first coined by German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss in 1872, and is now used as a synonym for words such as “word” and “answer”. “
And I thought this is what crosswords are all about.”

The term has been popularised by the game “Solving for Bach” and has since spread to other online games, such as Word Blitz.
“The word ‘cross’ means puzzle, and it means you’re trying to figure out the answer to a word, or a series, of words,” Ms Himes said.
Ms Hino said that although crosswords were not invented by the internet community, they had been used in previous generations of puzzles.
“They used to have this very simple thing, which is to figure a word out,” she explained.
“So you would play it and figure out a word.”
“And then you would go, ‘Oh, well I’ll have to go and play it again.'”
Ms Kallio said she found it fascinating to hear about the history of the word.
“Because I’m like a little kid, I want to be a puzzle-solving kid and just figure out words that nobody else is thinking about,” she joked.
“I don’t know if it’s a good word for kids to use.”
