Explain to me once more please. Apparently, some of the brain cells I've lost along the way were important. I don't follow the logic.
Why do you say 1 squared then 2 squared and then 2 cubed?

You forgot the X


It doesn't 'meld'

If it's clue is 1 2 3

then your answer would be

1x1
2x2
3x3

I think its a word...
my technique was to number each letter (I did 1-10, then repeted, and repeted again part way) till z. And then I looked at each letter, andsaid its a number 2 for example. What other letters are two? it could be... but it didnt spell anything. Maybe its not 1-10 for numbering tho. Maybe its only 1-2. Maybe its not this at all.
gee... its hard

I tried rot-13, and then every other rotation, but to no avail. Puzzled.

Kristine, why do you think the solution should be a word? How was the puzzle phrased? Where did you find it?
