Default [Dixonary] Round 2919, PADALYVIS, results


The next dealer is Shani Naylor with her splashing sound, thanks to one vote for it plus her vote for the correct answer, both near the end of the voting period. Those pushed her past Tim Bourne, who led for most of the round - to the point that I actually sent him a "you might want to begin to think about getting ready to dust off your word list" email before Shani picked up those three points. The Tims, Bourne and Lodge, share the coveted second-place position with scores of 5. (T. Bourne would have won a tie-breaker had it come to that, as his score was natural.)

Padalyvis is definition 13, "an adverbial participle describing an action performed by one that causes or otherwise relates to the action of another." An example sentence provided by one source is "While Jonas is singing, Mantas is listening." "Singing" would be in the padalyvis form of the verb because the singing causes the listening. Had Jonas not been singing, Mantas couldn't have listened to him. (Lithuanian is one of the only languages, perhaps the only one, to have this form. Mantas is the second most popular name for boys in Lithuania. You might want to keep that in mind in case you need to to name a baby boy there.) Anyhow, it got a D3.

Since it's 2:30 am in New Zealand now, Shani probably won't find out about her win for a while - but it's all hers when she wakes up!
