Here’s a trivia. There are only two “common” words which end in “-gry”: angry and hungry. The puzzler named “Nightowl” mentioned the old “-gry” words riddle in her Rochester, New York, newsletter The Ag Mine, Mar. 1997:
A local newspaper columnist found the first logical explanation I have seen of that so-called riddle. The correct version of the riddle is ‘Think of words ending in ‘-gry’. Angry and hungry are two of them. There are only three words in the English language. What is the third word? The word is something we use every day.
If you have listened carefully, I have already told you what it is. The answer is language, which is the third word in ‘the English language’. Most versions of the riddle change the wording and make it insoluble. Let’s hope this puts that ‘riddle’ to rest.
