And your next round...

   One word, different meanings
I am going to give a number of definitions for which the answer is all the same word. I want the word that is the definition. So if the clues were "a long, thin, flat piece of wood, to enter a ship, a group of people who are responsible for controlling an organisation", the answer to that is BOARD.

1   A soldier assigned to an officer as a servant, a superhero, a city in Turkey.

2   To descend from the sky, to come ashore, a distinct place or area.

3   A country, a condition, to assert, a mess.

4   To tally votes, a noble rank, to add up.

5   A fastener, the act of using that fastener, part of the body.

6   An industrial dispute, to hit, to miss in baseball.

7   A machine to transport, the process of using magic, to form by skill.

8   A mineral used as a flavouring, to destroy farmland, to store or save money or other valuables.

9   To dismiss a worker, to burn, to discharge a ranged weapon.

10   Music that is lower in pitch, a dwelling that is part of a communal building, an object with a negligible 3rd dimension.
I have neither the time nor the crayons to explain why you are wrong.

At last a quiz where the correct answer is self-revealing. Got seven of them, still baffled by the remaining three. No UK-centric questions is a plus! :D
Encumbered by Idjits, we pressed on

Struggling with 3, I think I have the rest

EDIT: - Doh! Came to me the moment I posted this!

Same here, Mike. Can't get 3, 5 and 7.

Spurious answer for 5..but don't think 'X' can count as a part of the body unless there's another word in front of it..Hmmm.

(Never knew there was a place in Turkey called that !!...but I do, now.) ;)

I'll do this later

I'm sure I finally got 3 because I stopped trying to work out the answer and let my brain work on it in the background. I finally realised I was thinking of one of the parts in completely the wrong way.

This round was inspired by that Turkish city. I mean, once you find out about it, you just have to get it in a quiz somehow!

Is the answer to No.5 'Velcro' ?
It works with the first two clues and I think that's what the surgeon used as mesh when he repaired my hernia.  :D

It's DEFINITELY not Velcro! I don't care what you had stitched in to you, it doesn't count as "part of body".

This afternoon - still no idea on 7, 5 and for some bizarre reason 3.
Just remembered to come back and look -blinding flash of the obvious! Duh!
Isn't the subconscious wonderful?
Much easier on my brain than Pop or fantasy/SF
Hoorah! All done.

Running the quiz last night, I had a number of teams on the picture round put one photo as Leonard Rossiter.

It was Gerard Depardieu
