Default [Dixonary] Round 3001 GRAINEUR Defs - Vote Now!

It's 36°C/97°F here and we haven't got aircon - not exactly conducive to
working at a computer! Anyway we have 14 imaginative defs of the word
GRAINEUR, only one of which came from my dictionary. Please vote for your
two favourites by public reply to this message, before the deadline of:


11:00 on Saturday 27th July, which is

10:00 GMT

12:00 CET

6:00 AM EDT

3:00 AM PDT

22:00 NZST in New Zealand


New players are welcome- just don't look after the word until after you've
voted:


-- Tim L


*** GRAINEUR ***


1. a safe cracker.

2. a meat grinder.

3. a ceremonial trumpeter.

4. a producer of silkworm eggs.

5. a peddler of devotional literature.

6. an engraver who specializes in designing stock certificates.

7. (Obs.) a worker in a flour mill who ensured the wheat was free from
foreign matter.

8. a person skilled in painting false grains on plaster, in imitation of
expensive woods.

9. a measure of the amount a photographic negative can be enlarged before
blurring results.

10. the person in charge of drying, grinding and mashing malt to make wort
for Scotch whisky.

11. an instrument used by ploughmen for keeping their horses a little
apart, that they may see forward between them to make a straight furrow.

12. a combination of live bacteria and yeasts that exist in a symbiotic
matrix on a surface of a complex polysaccharide with a casein core from
which kefir milk is produced.

13. one of a class of poet-musicians flourishing in northern France in the
1100s and 1200s, who composed chiefly narrative works, such as the chansons
de geste, in langue d'oïl.

14. originally used to describe the mottled appearance of the lunar
surface seen under sufficient resolution capable of determining small
meteorite strike-pits; asteroid surfaces also have the same appearance and
the term has been expanded to cover these.

Since I have no clue what the correct definition may be, I'll take 1 and 2,

8 and 13, please.

And this is a good time to mention that I'll probably not be around much for the next couple of
weeks, as we'll be out of reach of wifi and phone signal most of the time.

Best wishes,
Tim Bourne.

Hi Tim!

I'll admit, I am totally clueless. After eliminating the impossible, I
was left with nothing. After doing it again, with a lower threshold, Had
reduced the list to 14 candidates

Out of these, I'll go with #4 and 11.

Cheers,
Hugo

Heh!

No, not really. But I do give technical presentations, and I try to use
some of my dry humor to keep the audience from falling asleep.
Close enough?

I still think handling the occasional private vote is a better solution
than public defs or DQs.

If I ever deal again, I'll set the reply-to for the call for votes!

7 and 10 were fake defs I considered writing, but didn’t do nearly as well as those authors

Subject: [Dixonary] Round 3001 GRAINEUR Defs - Vote Now!



It's 36°C/97°F here and we haven't got aircon - not exactly conducive to working at a computer! Anyway we have 14 imaginative defs of the word GRAINEUR, only one of which came from my dictionary. Please vote for your two favourites by public reply to this message, before the deadline of:



11:00 on Saturday 27th July, which is

10:00 GMT

12:00 CET

6:00 AM EDT

3:00 AM PDT

22:00 NZST in New Zealand



New players are welcome- just don't look after the word until after you've voted:



-- Tim L



*** GRAINEUR ***



1.* a safe cracker.

2.* a meat grinder.

3.* a ceremonial trumpeter.

4.* a producer of silkworm eggs.

5.* a peddler of devotional literature.

6.* an engraver who specializes in designing stock certificates.

7.* (Obs.) a worker in a flour mill who ensured the wheat was free from foreign matter.

8.* a person skilled in painting false grains on plaster, in imitation of expensive woods.

9.* a measure of the amount a photographic negative can be enlarged before blurring results.

10.* the person in charge of drying, grinding and mashing malt to make wort for Scotch whisky.

11.* an instrument used by ploughmen for keeping their horses a little apart, that they may see forward between them to make a straight furrow.

12.* a combination of live bacteria and yeasts that exist in a symbiotic matrix on a surface of a complex polysaccharide with a casein core from which kefir milk is produced.*

13.* one of a class of poet-musicians flourishing in northern France in the 1100s and 1200s, who composed chiefly narrative works, such as the chansons de geste, in langue d'oïl.

14.* originally used to describe the mottled appearance of the lunar surface seen under sufficient resolution capable of determining small meteorite strike-pits; asteroid surfaces also have the same appearance and the term has been expanded to cover these.

Mine is the only plausible one, though unfortunately few players share that opinion. Of the rest, I'll pick 8 and 13. If 13 is fake, its composer deserves a point for correct use of an accent tréma.
