Default [Dixonary] Round 3039, Vote on IRACUND


Thirteen definitions of IRACUND follow. One is correct. Twelve are your concoctions. They have been edited slightly for format consistency and are in ascending order of character count, which might not correspond to visual length in your email display font.

Please vote for two that you like for any reason by Replying to this message before the deadline that follows the list. If you realize now that you know what IRACUND means, please tell me by private email: emallach <at> verizon <dot> net.

1. shy or modest.

2. orderly, tidy.

3. productive [of a mine].

4. [Bot.] having no roots.

5. shaped like a curlicue.

6. full in sound; sonorous.

7. [Obs.] of or related to goiters.

8. Irascible, choleric, prone to anger

9. holding in the sense of controlling one's temper [Lat. 'ira' wrath, anger]

10. of or pertaining to a conclusion arrived at by intuition as opposed to reason.

11. in monocot plants [rice, wheat, maize] a variant that produces more than one endosperm.

12. a period of time in some countries during the early spring when there are not many fresh fruits and vegetables available.

13. Hailing from Madagascar is the Lowland Streaked Iracund (Hemicentetes semispinosus), which has striking yellow and black fur with sparsely scattered quills. Found in lowland rain forest, the elusive iracund measures less than 20 cm in length and has an extended snout ideal for its insectivorous diet. It uses its quills to communicate in two different ways, by raising them in agitation or by rubbing them together in a method known as stridulation – best known as the type of noise produced by crickets and cicadas. The sound produced is too high to be perceived by human ears.

Votes are due 47 hours from now: Sunday, Jan. 5, at 9 am US EST. According to timeanddate.com <http://timeanddate.com/>, that is:

and other times in other places. Please check any time conversion that applies to you. That site is good, but nobody's perfect, and time change season is approaching.

New players are welcome to vote. Submitting a definition is not a requirement for voting; the only requirement is that you not know what the word means. Full rules at http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules <http://www.dixonary.net/game-rules-and-advice/rules> .

Vote on!
