Re: [Dixonary] Rnd 3019 MUNJANDIE Time to vote
 
I’ll go for 12 and 13 since the first 11 are obviously fake.

But pressed to vote “legally” and reward creativity, 5 and 10 at least amused me.

Re: [Dixonary] Rnd 3019 MUNJANDIE Time to vote
 
Definitely sounds Indian, but that leaves half a dozen or so. Of those, I'll take 8 and 10.

I was going to vote for two Indian defs, but I've fallen for the sheep- and
eucalyptus-eating cryptid, so now it's only one. 5 and 11, please.

5 a large, lizard-like cryptid from Australia which walks on its
hind legs and has been rumored to feed on eucalyptus when it cannot find
enough sheep to satisfy its appetites

11 English words whose origins lie in the Hindi, Urdu or Sanskrit
language

I'll take 4 and 10 (the latter just because I identify with it, not because I
think it's the real definition):

I remain unconvinced this could be a scientific term, so let's throw a few
votes toward two under-appreciated gems, both of which seem more or less
plausible.

2 & 6

2 an obsolete unit of mass in India approximately equal to 4 grains
