Just the generic- the only one I can remember trying now is fast learner, but I was considering whether or not Sage is a synonym for scholar, and If so, how to incorporate it (Do the names have to be 11 letters long? I wasn't sure).

Wisestudent- no luck.

Does capitalization matter?

Yes. You capitalize for the next word. Like that would have been WiseStudent.

The major key for now is that the second word is a synonym for scholar, so maybe folks let's try again and finally get this (final?) cheat out of the way? After all, we managed to crack all the others pretty fast, only this one has been avoiding us for now!

Craig, maybe you'll give us another hint- ie is it more in style with Untouchable/Charismatic rather than MrMoneyBags or RollingInIt?

Scholars include: editor, textual critic, lexicographer, historian, biographer, bibliographer, comparativist, linguist, philologist, semanticist, paleographer, historiographer, archaeologist, demographer, geographer, geopolitician, political scientist, sociologist, philosopher, folklorist, anthropologist, economist, ethnologist, cartographer, classicist, humanist, behaviorist, dialectologist, rhetorician, grammarian, etymologist, musicologist, literary historian, theologian, orientalist.

Some are probably repeating. I found a lot over google search.

I wonder what makes the cheat so elusive?

I hope Craig gives us another clue!

I'll bet it uses a word from another language.  Maybe latin or something.

I happen to be interested in Latin and am currently learning it over the summer.

I believe a scholar is philologus in Latin. Latin is a zombie language.

Spoiler
Latin is considered a dead language yet some people know it and even speak it.

Craig said that the words will all be in English, rainen.
In any case, good to see more effort put in, let's see if we can finally overcome this last cheat hurdle!

Thanks for compiling a synoynms list, Tastidian! Have you tried testing it yet?

Maybe we should also try to make a short list of 2, 3, 4, 5 letter words which would go with scholar?
(e.g. great, etc)

my school teaches latin.  Some of the students are even able to converse with each other by speaking only latin.  We're also taught the roots of most words which are usually latin or greek.  Mostly latin though.  Looks to me like latin might end up making a comeback ;)  but maybe using latin to compile "fake" words would be something that Craig did? yea I doubt it too but i just had to throw that out there :P

I took Tastidian's post and took out all of the ones 11 letters or more, and most of the ones that are irrelevant, and the repeats.

second words
academic, augur, bookworm, brain, critic, disciple, doctor, egghead, learner, professor, sage, savant, scientist, student, tool, pundit, authority, academic, teacher, historian, biographer, linguist, geographer, classicist, grammarian.

And then there's a list of synonyms for "smart."

first words
acute, adept, agile, alert, apt, astute, bold, brainy, bright, brisk, canny, clever, crafty, fresh, genius, good, keen, knowing, nervy, nimble, pert, quick, ready, sassy, sharp, shrewd, skull, slick, whiz, wise

As with the second words, I took out all the words over length 7 (7 because the shortest of words in the top words is 4 long). Then I went back to the second words, and shortened the max length to 8, as the shortest in the first words is 3.

second words - revised
augur, brain, critic, doctor, egghead, learner, savant, student, teacher, tool, pundit, sage.

And finally, I used a Flash program to put them all together.

LONG LIST
AptBookworm, AptDisciple, AptAcademic, BoldEgghead, BoldLearner, BoldStudent, BoldTeacher, GoodEgghead, GoodLearner, GoodStudent, GoodTeacher, KeenEgghead, KeenLearner, KeenStudent, KeenTeacher, PertEgghead, PertLearner, PertStudent, PertTeacher, WhizEgghead, WhizLearner, WhizStudent, WhizTeacher, WiseEgghead, WiseLearner, WiseStudent, WiseTeacher, AcuteSavant, AcutePundit, AcuteDoctor, AcuteCritic, AdeptSavant, AdeptPundit, AdeptDoctor, AdeptCritic, AgileSavant, AgilePundit, AgileDoctor, AgileCritic, AlertSavant, AlertPundit, AlertDoctor, AlertCritic, BriskSavant, BriskPundit, BriskDoctor, BriskCritic, CannySavant, CannyPundit, CannyDoctor, CannyCritic, FreshSavant, FreshPundit, FreshDoctor, FreshCritic, BrainSavant, BrainPundit, BrainDoctor, BrainCritic, NervySavant, NervyPundit, NervyDoctor, NervyCritic, QuickSavant, QuickPundit, QuickDoctor, QuickCritic, ReadySavant, ReadyPundit, ReadyDoctor, ReadyCritic, SassySavant, SassyPundit, SassyDoctor, SassyCritic, SharpSavant, SharpPundit, SharpDoctor, SharpCritic, SkullSavant, SkullPundit, SkullDoctor, SkullCritic, SlickSavant, SlickPundit, SlickDoctor, SlickCritic, AstuteAugur, AstuteBrain, BrainyAugur, BrainyBrain, BrightAugur, BrightBrain, CleverAugur, CleverBrain, CraftyAugur, CraftyBrain, GeniusAugur, GeniusBrain, NimbleAugur, NimbleBrain, ShrewdAugur, ShrewdBrain, KnowingSage, KnowingTool.

Happy testing!

Or maybe I'll test them all and get back to you... but if you (whomever  reads this) would like to find it first, then you'd probably get it done faster.
