No, nothing to do with music but you’ll find me in prose and especially in verse.

Nothing really springs to mind.

"ae" is a diphthong.

Backwards r.ae = ea.r

"r" could = reader and "a" = ancient and "e" = Egyptian
so could it be "reader in ancient egyptian":?:

Has nobody any thoughts on this:?:

OK, smarty pants, I can see you've got it:D

For everybody else I wrote:I'm sure proof there's life in the English language.

From here... That thread has sunk to the end of p.3 (probably p.4 while you're reading this)... Those were the days before the exile of our Ruudiculous master...

r.ae = Ruud - artistical exiler?

Yes, I resurrected this little corpse from the time when Ruud was rattling around the bottom level. He travels on a higher plane now but you can still reach him if you take the elevator, though I don't think he knows the answer:D

Anyway, enough of that hoary old chestnut:D

Getting back to the riddle, I wrote:Resurrection means to rise again but rebus does not mean to catch the bus again and reproof does not mean to prove again

I was pleased that r.ae does not appear in this collection of 100 rebus puzzles.

I thought it was original – but you can never be sure what of other people's stuff lodges in your brain without you realising ... eh, J K Rowling?

Does it help if I say that the . is a pictogram?

I'm sure that the answer has been said before, but I can't see it.......

I would go for
1. Left pointing ear
2. Left spotted/dotted ear

Hmm, spotted ear … no, but you're on the right track ...

and for being the first person to attempt an answer, you get a prize...

I bought you these on eBay. I hope the colour works.:D

Those ear muffs look fantastic, I don't think they would look nice next to my bandana & glass eye though.....

Anyway..... It seems that we are lost around the point, we need a clue, It must be just another period in a mixed era where everything just goes blank.

You must not assume anything.

Even if I got it, it must be subconsciously, as my conscious mind is feeling incredible dense.

But working off tarek's
Period in a mixed era

How about:
A point in time:?:

Which is more than likely, wrong.

emm wrote:Does it help if I say that the . is a pictogram?

No.

"." could mean:
Full stop
Stop
Dot
End
Halt
Terminate

Is it something along these lines:

Something in back ear:?:

Alright, this is drivin' me nuts!

So, I'm going to spoil everybody's fun and say that r.ae is : A female paramour; a mistress, concubine, or harlot - according to Dictionary.com


I know, I'm not supposed to look it up but I did the last time Emm used it and I just gots to know:D

Thank you
