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: - mafioso, n. a member of the Sicilian Mafia - disjoin, v. make disjoint, separated, or disconnected; undo the joining of 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.
