Bonus Vocab from WordNet: This is randomly selected automatically, so in case it offends you or you disagree, please either ignore or be inspired to make up different words and/or phrases: - downy manzanita, n. erect openly branched California shrub whose twigs are woolly when young - camouflage, v. disguise by camouflaging; exploit the natural surroundings to disguise something; "The troops camouflaged themselves before they went into enemy territory" Fiant verba! ---- If you want to post your own weekly vocab, please do not send it to the list directly. To prevent unbalanced amounts of new vocab, send it to <weeklyvocab@...> in order to enqueue it in the regular weekly posting process. Just write a mail as if addressing the list directly -- it will be forwarded as is.
