    Take 2 minutes and help a SitePoint buddy out! ;-)

    lol I have this HUGE thing due tommorrow and I am totally going crazy. I was assigned to find and define 100 words for english class...don't ask me why, just lemme finish with that fact that my teacher is NUTS!

    I was thinking...maybe you guys can help a lil ...take two seconds of your day and learn a new word. From either USAToday, NationalGeographic.com, NationalPost.com and other newspaper sites in your area, PLEASE find me 1 or 2 words which you find you do not know.

    Define it and give the source you got it from. *You can used dictionary.com, its the best one around*

    YOUR HELP IS MUCH APPRECIATED...! I can make it up to everyone with a new funny joke I found lol

    You are so lazy, it is not a difficult assignment you should do it yourself. But anyway, here is something from the Collins Dictionary.

    ambassador, envoy, legate, minister

    lol...

    Naw I am PACKED with work...I find this irrelevant so I don't bother with it. I rather work on my 2 essays and exam studying...

    btw, no words from dictionary (I could have done that too ) Its gotta be from a REAL site source (ie.USAToday.com)

    Thanks though

    So, the word has to be from an article we read?

    But I don't think there are many words you don't know in USA Today!
