Words Ending in GRY

Think of words ending in -GRY. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something that everyone uses every day. If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is.

The riddle states, “There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word?” The third word of the phrase “the English language” is of course “language.” Don’t get angry at me, I didn’t make it up :)

What throws this riddle off is the absence of proper punctuation. The riddle should read “There are only three words in: the English language.” Though it’s subtle and most people would over look it as a typo, it would give a sharp mind the focus on the phrase: the English language.

An even clearer way would be:

There are only three words in the phrase, “the English language”, but we’re not going for clarity. :)

I thought it was hungry.
It’s a word everyone uses everyday because people get hungry.

Apparently who ever made these riddles lacked in not only something to keep them occupied but as well intelligence due to the fact that these riddles are beyond stupid

Energy ends in “rgy” instead of “gry”.

The answer is pugry. Look it up. It’s a veil on the back of a hat to protect the neck from the sun. You’ve seen them, just not known the name. You’re welcome.
