Word Play

A page from Henry's homework: Use these words in a sentence: prepay, prefix, precede, prevent Henry: I had to prevent from letting him prepay to have the teacher precede with the prefix lesson. Mrs. S: Henry, Nice try but each word needs to be in its own sentence. I might be biased, but I think Henry must be pretty smart to come up with a sentence using all those words together. Another word game. We have this board in the kitchen for our random thoughts (mostly mine). We did this word association awhile back (click on the picture to see a bigger version): All three of us participated. I started with appreciate, then it went like: appreciate -> celebrate -> chocolate -> ingredient -> culinary -> knives (this is from Henry) -> lightening -> rain -> check -> housework -> contribution (this is deffinitely mine) -> money -> cash -> June (this is Bill's) -> sun -> astroid -> rocks -> mountains -> trees -> forestry (this is mine, since I was doing research about my maternal grandfather at the time) -> dentistry (this is probably Bill's, after a dental appointment) -> teeth (this is Henry's) -> threaten -> robber -> justification -> facts -> history A new Word Association is currently on the board, with the condition that words need to be more than three syllables or five letters. The first word is enjoyable. Anyone wants to play? Just go from this word, or the last word you see in the comments.

Jennifer, the word needs to be at least 3 syllables or 5 letters. How about "mothball"?
