  1. Ooh great feature! I could definitely use a little vocabulary expansion. I think this word was used in Pirates of the Caribbean xD.

  3. Great word! I think I discovered this word when the line "I decline to acquiesce your request" was in Pirates of the Caribbean. Even then, I didn't know what it meant, until now. Thank you! Here's mine: http://www.southernfiberreads.com/2011/01/wondrous-words-and-wow-100-words.html
