Episode 2410 was broadcast on 9 December 1998, as part of Series 39.

Noel Godson played Glynn Leaney, with Glynn Leaney winning 41 – 33. The Dictionary Corner guest was Gyles Brandreth, and the lexicographer was Hannah Robertson.

NOTE: The conundrum in this game was illegal, as the phrase HOOVERING is derived from the word HOOVER, which was capitalised in the dictionary due to being based on a brand name.
