Vocabulary List #3

Near the start of class, Iíll quiz you on the words from the list below. Youíll need to spell each word correctly, write a definition for it in your own words, and use it meaningfully in a properly written sentence (noting its part of speech). I will not allow you to use anything other than a blank sheet of paper, a pen or pencil, and your mind during the quiz.
If you are viewing this list on the class web site, clicking any word on it will open a window containing the definition for that word in the online Merriam-Websterís Collegiate Dictionary. If the Collegiate dictionary definitions are too difficult for you, try The Merriam-Webster Student Dictionary. Its definitions are a bit easier to understand. However, you'll have to type each word. I am not able to link directly to them.
