    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".

    Grammer Police Edit:
    You're right!1 It's "you're"!2 It's3 also "want to" and not "wanna". Good catch!4 I've never been a great proofreader. [no "and5"] Thank you for your reply, but you didn't post another pronunciation to keep things rolling.6 So, here we go:

    Citation List
    1. Explatives such as this have a subject {You} and verb {'re (are)}. They need an ending punctuation mark {. or ! or ?}. If you use a comma here, it becomes a "run on sentence".

    2. Punctuation marks go after the quotation marks.

    3. When {its} is used in the possessive, the spelling is this: its
    When {it's} is used as a contraction ("it is"), the spelling is this: it's

    4. "Good catch" is used here as an explative. It therefore needs an ending punctuation mark.

    5. Grammer proper sentences do not begin with the word "and".

    6. I think the poster was trying to post the pronunciation for the word "colonel" because it was spelled phonetically and highlighted in red.

    Grammatically yours,
