These trinanagrams - variants of bananagrams in which there are three mystery words rather than two - are dedicated to Edmund Conti in appreciation of his 21 recently concluded installments of "Bananagrams" in Word Ways. To solve a trianagram, first guess the mystery word at the end of the first line of the couplet, based on clues and context. The mystery word at the end of the second line will be reversal word which rhymes with the first word, and the third mystery word will be the reversal of the second word.
