Default [Dixonary] Round 3004 - JEBEL - VOTE NOW!

First, an apology: There are 3 DQs, but due to some computer difficulties I'm having, I'm very anxious to move things along with the hope that I will be able to finish the round, so I didn't try a new word. The tech rep is coming tomorrow, but one of my issues is my hard drive, and if it needs to be replaced, I don't know if he or she has a replacement...yet. Thank goodness for backups, but I would still need to install my programs. :-(

Here are 14 definitions for the word JEBEL shared exactly as I received them -- but only one is correct. Please send your votes by responding to the Dixonary group for what you believe are two definitions most likely to have come from a dictionary. The deadline for voting is Thursday, August 8th, at 8 a.m. Eastern Time. As usual, I will let you determine the time in your time zone. :-)

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault (I'll take the blame!) and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition.

Good luck! ~Judy
