Well--it at least served to inform me that once again I had forgotten the meaning of deracinate. There were several that I had to look up, so I thank you. Maybe eventually I'll remember what I learn...

I'd have done better if I'd trusted the ones I thought I wasn't quite sure of. Not ashamed of myself, though.
