  1. I'm kind of glad I didn't know that word. I'm going to look up the pronunciation.

  3. Hi Mary Ann

    I know of vivisection, but more so for its alternative meaning ...

    "The practice of performing operations on live animals for the purpose of experimentation or scientific research (used only by opponents of such work)"

    This is a word used regularly by the 'Animal Rights Activists', here in the UK ...

    Thanks for sharing :)
