    Default Word of the day

    well it turns out the spelling bee forum i started does quite match up with the competition im practicing for. Its actually a vocabualry contest, so if you want to play, post a word of the day, (or four words a day i dont care) with its definition. and check out the competition, in case you want in.. www.winwithwords.com

    first word,

    hobbledehoy \HOB-uhl-dee-hoy\, noun:
    An awkward, gawky young fellow.
