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: - Fifth Avenue, n. an avenue in Manhattan that separates the east side of Manhattan from the west side - look out on, v. be oriented in a certain direction; "The house looks out on a tennis court"; "The apartment overlooks the Hudson" 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.
