  1. I knew decry and feel like I should have known impinge. I just read that they're going to change the vocabulary on the SAT. Thanks for playing along!

  2. Hi Mary Ann,

    I am not quite sure what SAT is in the USA, however over here in the UK, it relates to an educational examination. If that is the case, then I am not quite so short of the old brain cells as I thought, as I knew all your words this week, which must be a first for me!

    'Diffident' really does sound like its definition, don't you agree ... such an unassuming word!

    Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend,

    Yvonne

    1. I agree diffident doesn't sound like it's definition.
