Default [Dixonary] Round 2899 Results: GLUME

Fellow players,

Nancy Shepherdson jumped out to an early lead, with the first three voters all voting for her Northumberland coal dust, and held on to win with a score of 4. Second place and traditional "winnah" honors go to Tony Abell who scored 3 for his tree frog slime. His was the only vote for the correct definition, #13: one of two membranous bracts near the base of a spikelet. I don't understand it either. John Barrs does, though, since his graduate research was on grasses. He was DQ.

Full results:

1. [Fr.] a potter's wheel. From McGill, R. who did not vote. Voted for by: Cunningham, D.; Lodge, T. Score: 2.

2. grease or other lubricant. From Abell, T. who voted 5, *13*. Voted for by: Shefler, M. Score: 3.

3. [obs.] slime, esp. of tree frogs. From Cunningham, D. who voted 1, 9. Voted for by: Shefler, M.; Widdis, D. Score: 2.

5. a portent of fortune: good or ill. From Hale, K. who voted 6, 14. Voted for by: Abell, T.; Dixon, S. Score: 2.

6. rough fragments of wood; splinters. From Stevens, G. who voted 10, 15. Voted for by: Hale, K. Score: 1.
