Default [Dixonary] Round 3111 - ONYXIS - VOTE NOW!

a:link {color: #0000FF;} a:visited {color: #800080;} body { font-size: 12pt; font-family: Verdana; color: #000000; background-color: FFFFFF; margin-top: 0px; margin-left: 10px; margin-bottom: 0px; margin-right: 0px; }

Here are (lucky?) 13 definitions for the word ONYXIS shared exactly as I received them (except for my changing the first letter to uppercase where needed) — but only one is correct. (I did use italics when a definition included them, but I don't know whether they will come through for everyone.) 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 Wednesday, October 14, at 6 p.m. http://www.timezoneconverter.com/cgi-bin/tzc.tzc

Any misspellings, weird spacing, etc., are my fault and not an indication of the accuracy of a particular definition. 

 



Good luck!
