I believe I know what the "correct" word that goes in the blank is, but I still can't guess at the answer. Is there any British slang involved or something?

No, no slang. It's a simple word.

Even after using grep and multiple dictionaries, I can still only think of one reasonable word for either half, but it doesn't seem to work out.

Never mind, I found the intended answer.

Incidentally there was an MIT mystery hunt puzzle similar this year.

Anyone still around on this one. I seem to have translated 90% of the text but it fizzles away a bit at the end. I have an what I think is a idea of what the answer is but must be wrong as it isn't accepting it or similar answers I'm trying...
Any clues are welcomed or anyone happy to receive a PM to see if I'm on the right lines or not?

Totally stuck on this, I can follow the text and think I know what the final word begins with but can't work out how to figure out what the ending of it would be. Clues VERY welcome.
