Apart from Angry And Hungry, what other common English word ends in -gry?
You are told wrong! There isn't one!
This riddle has been circulating in email for years now in various forms of words and had appeared in print media before that. Dictionary and reference departments the world over have been plagued by questions about it. It seems to have originated as a trick question, but the wording has become so garbled in subsequent transmission that it is hard to tell what was originally intended.
The most probable answer is that in the original wording the question was phrased something like this:
Think of words ending in -gry. Angry and hungry are two of them. What is the third word in the English language? You use it every day and if you were listening carefully, I've just told you what it is.
The answer, of course, is language (the third word in the English language).
There are several other English words ending in -gry which are listed in the complete Oxford English Dictionary, but none of them could be described as common. They include the trivial oddities un-angry and a-hungry and
