Default [Dixonary] Round 2999 AULACOGEN Results

I thought AULACOGEN was a good word, as I could see no possible etymology.
The OED says it comes from the ancient Greek for 'furrow' via Russian. It
means, as four far-sighted playes guessed, a rift valley. You all came up
with some imaginative defs.

It's fitting that our long-serving statistician, Mike Shefler, should take
the honour of dealing Round 3000. He got 6 votes for his fungal defence
mechanism. The real winner is Judy Madnick, who got an unnatural 5 for her
biocompatible polysaccharide.

Over to you, Mike.
