Vocabulary Challenge

Beware, this challenge in not for the faint-hearted!

If you're like the rest of us in class, you are a lover of words or simply enjoy a challenge. Either way, this page is for you! Do you like to use big words like unfeigned, vociferous or zealous?

In our class we have certain lists of words. Any student wishing to earn himself/herself some extra credit may define these words and attempt to use them correctly in a sentence. One such card contains the following words

erst-while     wrested     amanuensis     terricolous     untrammeled     callow     quern     entoiled     febrile     repatriation     retinue     sentient     sfumato

If you stop by the classroom, there are other great lists available, however for the website, we thought we might "kick up" the challenge. Just by clicking on one of the links below you can download your own challenge. These lists are pretty impressive. As you finish them, return them to me for your extra credit- complete the entire set and receive a surprise. That's about it- enjoy!
