Default [Dixonary] ROUND 3184 - OPHIURAN - VOTE NOW!

a:link {color: #0000FF;} a:visited {color: #800080;} body { font-size: 12pt; font-family: Verdana; color: #000000; background-color: FFFFFF; margin-left: 10px; }

Here are 14 definitions for the word OPHIURAN shared as I received them -- but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to the Dixonary group for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is  Saturday, July 24, 2021, at 9 a.m. http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi....tzc Hope you don't mind the roughly 48-hour turnaround time, but Friday evening doesn't look possible for me.

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition. 


Good luck!
