    Default Spelling Bee

    Here's another game for this nearly empty forum...

    So here's the deal: I wanna practice for Game Show network's spelling bee this year, so I'm going to post the pronunciation of a word, and the next person to post it has to spell it right, and gets to post the next pronunciation. If you look up the spelling your a cheater and defeat the purpose.

    Lets play


    1st word is... puh-des-tree-uhn

    And by the way, are you sure it's "..your a cheater."?

    You're right, it's "you're," its also "want to" and not "wanna." Good catch, I've never been a great proofreader. And thank you for your reply, but you didn't post another pronunciation to keep things rolling. So here we go:

    Palindrome

    Reads the same forward and backward. Like "racecar ", "Able Was I Ere I Saw Elba" or "A man, a plan, a canal, Panama".

    Palendrome vs. Palindrome:

    I'm not sure that it isn't the difference between English (British - UK) and English (American).

    I guess I was a little too suttle.

    You missed my incorrect spelling of Colonel.
