word suggestion: unpeel
« on: April 27, 2021, 10:13:13 AM »
Not allowed in the spelunker game.

I know the more common word is peel, and unpeel seems impossible - how do you stick the peeled skin back on a potato, for instance?
But it does seem to be a word and is in dictionaries, and means peel.

Like rave/unravel - both mean the same thing. No one can convince me that the English language is logical.

I agree, I tend to think of unpeel as being a word.

I tried it as well - to remove the peel...
