Default [Dixonary] Round 3070 results

Our next dealer is Tim L, who scored 6 natural points with his muttonbird def
(actual Maori name is tītī) and who is ahead of Efrem M in the rolling
scores. Efrem also scored 6 natural points for his extinct NZ bird.
According to that reputable authority, Wye's Dictionary of Improbable
Words, ay-ay-aya is actually the yell of a runner in training (not that
I've ever heard a runner yell this). Wye's dictionary focuses on words that
are all vowels (including y) or all consonants and are found in published
books. You can have a peek inside on Amazon.

Take it away Tim!
