Predominantly Nouns. Perhaps for a second language learner?

Looks good, eta -- thanks!

Olly, nouns are the easiest to illustrate, no?

Indeed. One of our exercises in art class was to illustrate movement and emotion. Not as easy as one might think. Facial gestures, trees blowing, sunny skies, all allude to or suggest a meaning but are not definitive. A talented artist can achieve a more astute result but ultimately the perception is in the eye of the beholder, and we all have our favourite colours don't we?

just for fun I clicked on condition, it showed me a hybrid car battery conditioner?!?!
Its choices are as idiosyncratic as, oh darn, what was the name of our spellcheck engine a while back?
