Now I'm stuck with just these four words and I'm sure the brilliant minds at SDN can help me out here. The list is pretty self explanatory, but if you still need explanation, then maybe you can PM me and I'll explain it to you real slow-like. Now, don't you all shove each other now to reply to this message, there's enough replies for everyone. Unsual English Words 1. Abbreviation Why isnt abbreviation abbreviated? 2. Bombastic Why is bombastic unnecessarily verbose? 3. Monosyllabic Why does monosyllabic have five syllables? 4.Palindrome Why doesnt palindrome read the same forward and backwards? If you add a word, please continue with the question format. Now you all play nice, I'll be back.
