A site part of Scripps-Howard spelling bee, with discussion of words with Greek roots
Well worth browsing.

Not that I let the Academy Award influence my movie-going options but. I see that one of the five documentaries nominated is called "Spellbound," and it details the experiences of the finalists in the National Spelling Bee.

Sounds like gripping stuff.

ahem. G-R-I-P. Grip.

I caught a film on HBO or possibly Cinemax about an eight year old cross-dresser who was a spelling bee champion. I missed the first half hour or thereabouts, so I've no idea what the title was.

Dear musick: I can imagine you having a gripping in the gut if you had to spell,and also
define these few words I selected. I picked them because I cannot.I'll just post them, and
maybe later come back with definitions. I'll try not to make typos, but if you suspect some
you know where to look to find correct spelling.

wwh - I broke my eyes reading those.

Dear musick: you have given me a task. Allegedly the Greeks had a word for everything.
I must admit I don't know their word for "I broke my eyes" and will have to *hunt for it.

Will you post the definitions to those words so we won't have to look them up--at least, if you have the definitions close by and can just copy and paste?
