Default [Dixonary] Round 3028 - OBELISCOLYCHNY - VOTE NOW!

Here are 11 definitions for the word OBELISCOLYCHNY shared as I received them (except the addition of a period at the end of those that didn't include one!) -- but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to the Dixonary group for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Wednesday, November 20th, at 8 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

I apologize for the long voting time, but it's the best I can do this week.

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck!
