100 Words

For now, just a link to a list of 100 words that the editors of the American Heritage Dictionary say every high school graduate should know - mostly Latinate, but including "belie", "churlish", and "yeoman". Hmmm ...

A hat-tip to dailykos, where a few more folks, no doubt, will also see it.

Yeah, I glanced through copies of AHD's "100 Words" series and was a bit disappointed. The words they chose were not new to me, but may be new to others.

The national spelling bee competition had more interesting words to learn about that the what the editors of AHD served.
