Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Miscellany How many of these words did you have to look up?
#191478 06/08/10 07:01 PM OP
AnnaStrophic #191481 06/09/10 12:25 AM Theres a certain familiarity about a lot of the words in the list (AWAD perhaps) I could comfortably decipher 10 maybe with another 10 there or there abouts. The rest I would relegate to Dales infamous 'type 3' folder, Maybe 2.

So, you want maybe fifty links with fifty "in case you haven't looked it up yet, here's a link" links?
I did not know baldenfreude.
Ceci n'est pas un seing.
AnnaStrophic #191488 06/09/10 03:44 AM Anna, good to see your fonts again, m'dear!
I knew nearly 40 for sure, and some of the rest I have seen in context but could not give a def. without that. Others, like sui generis, I have seen and completely forgotten the meaning.
AnnaStrophic #191492 06/09/10 07:40 AM There's 22 out of the fifty I need not look up. Most of thoses are direct import words
These are words can you train yourself on in that Free Rice game.Link I keep it in the sideline ever since it turned up here. Best word game I know.
PS. Not to spend a new thread on this but wouldn't it be nice to not say:
"What an unsightly congeries of mismatched assets the McGuinty government seems to have in mind."
But: " What an ugly heap of trash the McGuinty government seems to have in mind" (?)

the McGuinty government
Ah, the Great McGuinty. Now that was a movie. Donleavy, Tamiroff, et al.
