Max's Spelling List

I am not going to admit to you how many of these words were unknown to me. Frankly, it's embarrassing.

1. disenfranchise
2. sophisticatedly
3. unconstitutionality
4. hartebeest
5. habeas corpus
6. grandiloquence
7. fatalistically
8. batholith
9. bathyscaphe
10. verdigris
11. infectious
12. borzoi
13. acquaintance
14. archaic
15. maudlin

I spent the last 20 minutes looking up and writing down the definitions of these words. I may use borzoi in a sentence this week if I find myself in a conversation about hunting wolves in Russia.

  1. Maybe plan on using it somehow during the dinner before the New Moon movie. I'm not sure if I was even pronouncing them correctly when I read Laura his list.
