NPR Sunday Puzzle (Apr 30, 2023): Azure and Beige
Q: The “zh” sound can be spelled in many different ways in English — like the “s” in MEASURE; like the “g” in BEIGE; like the “z” in AZURE; like the “j” in MAHARAJAH; and like the “x” in LUXURY as some people pronounce it. The “zh” sound can also be spelled as a “t” in one instance. We know of only one common word this is true of, not counting its derivatives. What word is it?
Change the penultimate letter to an S and rearrange to name things that some people might treasure.
