I find it interesting that during a spelling bee, one can ask for the word in a sentence. As I like to use as many big words as I can in order to expand my vocabulary and sound smarter, I think I should practice. You know, in case I’m ever asked to judge a spelling bee.
Whenever I don’t know a word, I always try to figure out the definition on my own. Hopefully, I’ll get close to their meaning. I mean, if I’m going to be reading the definitions to countless children hoping to win the national spelling bee, I’m going to need to know the meaning of a lot of words, right? Especially big ones. Those are the ones that stump the contestants and show who will truly dominate the international world of competitive spelling.
