Default [Dixonary] Round 2841 (JOW) results

Folks,

Jow is Definition 8, a Scots term for "the ringing, tolling or sound of a bell." That phrasing is from dictionary.com <http://dictionary.com/>, but substantially similar definitions can be found in Merriam-Webster, Collins and many other print dictionaries. The word also has other rarer meanings, such as an early unit of measure for length in India equal to about 1/4", but none of the fake definitions resembles any of those I could find and I don't think they distorted the results.

The next deal goes to Dan Widdis, whose "Barrsian" definition 13 scored a natural 4. He was ahead by one point going into the final hour, when Ryan McGill's vote widened the gap. Five players tied for second with natural 2s. Three players who submitted definitions didn't vote: is a 47-hour voting period so long that people first put off voting and then forget about it?

Full results:

1. to talk incessantly. From Bourne, T. who voted 7, 12. Voted for by: Lodge, T.; McGill, R. Score: 2.

2. to cause to acquiesce. From Carson, C. who did not vote. Voted for by: Naylor, S.; Shefler, M. Score: 2.

3. [Obs.] to break wind silently. From Lodge, T. who voted 1, 13. Voted for by: Widdis, D. Score: 1.

4. to speak ostentatiously; brag. From McGill, R. who voted 1, 13. Voted for by: Stevens, G. Score: 1.

5. a derogatory term for wastefulness. From Stevens, G. who voted 4, 9. Voted for by: None. Score: 0.

6. a path demarcated by piles of stones. From Abell, T. who did not vote. Voted for by: None. Score: 0.

7. [Asia] a small, makeshift barge or raft. From Hale, K. who voted 11, 13.. Voted for by: Bourne, T.; Madnick, J. Score: 2.

8. [Scots.] the ringing, tolling or sound of a bell. From Dictionary who did not vote. Voted for by: None. Score: D0.

9. a small plate covering the armpit joint in a suit of armour. From Madnick, J. who voted 7, 12. Voted for by: Stevens, G.; Naylor, S. Score: 2.

10. the tree-kangaroo of North Queensland, _Dendrolagus lumholtzii_. From Naylor, S. who voted 2, 9. Voted for by: Widdis, D. Score: 1.

11. [Viet.] an obligation imposed on someone by a person of lower rank. From Shefler, M. who voted 2, 13. Voted for by: Hale, K. Score: 1.

12. a flat-bottomed fishing boat used in the coastal waters and rivers of Vietnam. From Shepherdson, N. who did not vote. Voted for by: Bourne, T.; Madnick, J. Score: 2.

13. [Cf. G. _jü_, interj., used in calling to a horse, used to turn a horse to the left.] To turn to the off side, or from the driver (i.e., in the United States, to the right side). From Widdis, D. who voted 3, 10. Voted for by: Lodge, T.; McGill, R.; Hale, K.; Shefler, M. Score: 4.

It's all yours, Dan!
