No answers for #3 yet so I'm giving out another couple of letters:

Impossible to express in a four-letter word? (9) I_E____LE

Shuchi said...

Thanks dram. I miss COW too - can't seem to access the site, my overzealous antivirus flags it as "malicious" for some reason :(

Good answers everyone. I'll hold on to #3 for another day. Hint: The definition is "impossible to express".

Impossible to express in a four-letter word? (9)
INEFFABLE
I am not sure about the wordplay but my guess is
(In F... able - where F... stands for an expletive)

Shuchi said...

eXternal, Siva: You got it!
