Default [Dixonary] Round 2989 FLIFFIS results

Folks,

This was an unusual round. I'm glad it's over.

The correct definition of "fliffis" is #7, a twisting double somersault performed on a trampoline. John Barrs submitted a fake definition that was just different enough to be uncombinable with it, but many players (six of eleven voters, in fact) saw this similarity as indicating that one of them was probably correct. They were right, of course. I earned a not-too-respectable, but under the circumstances understandable, D8. John is the next dealer with 7 points, including two for voting for the correct definition. (He received six votes, but his vote for his own definition doesn't count. That is reflected in the table at the bottom as a -1 DP adjustment.) Dave Cunningham is the traditional "winnah" with 4.

Full results:

1. a soft plastic fishing lure. From Embler, D. who voted 3, 6. Voted for by: Shepherdson, N. Score: 1.

2. grit, dust, or other fine debris. From McGill, R. who did not vote. Voted for by: Naylor, S. Score: 1.

3. strands of hair found on some legumes. From Cunningham, D. who voted *7*, 11. Voted for by: Embler, D.; Shepherdson, N. Score: 4.

4. a coarse woolen fabric, yarn, or ribbon binding. From Carson, C. who voted *7*, 11. Voted for by: None. Score: 2.

5. a woolly long-tailed nocturnal lemur (bush baby). From Madnick, J. who voted *7*, 11. Voted for by: None. Score: 2.

6. a term for whalebone when used in a corset. [obs.] From Shepherdson, N. who voted 1, 3. Voted for by: Embler, D.; Lodge, T.; Stevens, G. Score: 3.

7. a twisting double somersault performed on a trampoline. From Dictionary which could not vote. Voted for by: Cunningham, D.; Carson, C.; Madnick, J.; Widdis, D.; Lodge, T.; Barrs, J.; Shefler, M.; Stevens, G. Score: D8.

8. the extension of an exterior wall above the level of a flat roof. From Abell, T. who did not vote. Voted for by: None. Score: 0.

9. a garment resembling a waistcoat lined with cork, to serve as a life preserver From Widdis, D. who voted *7*, 11. Voted for by: None. Score: 2.

10. any of the three leaf-like plates at the tip of the abdomen of damselfly nymphs. From Lodge, T. who voted 6, *7*. Voted for by: Naylor, S. Score: 3.

11. a fall in diving where the diver attempts a double somersault and does not complete and thus enters the water flat. From Barrs, J. who voted *7*, 11. Voted for by: Cunningham, D.; Carson, C.; Madnick, J.; Widdis, D.; [Barrs, J., no point]; Shefler, M. Score: 7.

12. a candy made from a brown-sugar based sugar syrup and egg whites, resulting in a fluffy, creamy confection. Common additions include nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, and flavoring extracts. From Shefler, M. who voted *7*, 11.. Voted for by: None. Score: 2.

No definition from Stevens, G. who voted 6, *7*. Voted for by: None. Score: 2.

For those who prefer tables the results follow in that form, in descending order of scores without regard for tie-breaking rules:



It's all yours, John!
