Default [Dixonary] Round 3192 - HARAS - results

All - first, my apologies for the delay, which as Efrem explained a few
minutes ago, was the unfortunate result of my travel over the past 5 days.
Despite the relatively small number of entries, it was an interesting round.
As you can see below, Efrem Mallach and Judy Madnick were tied with 5 votes
apiece. In addition, they were both tied in the four-round rolling scores
with 9 apiece. Since Judy has the higher cumulative score since Round 1, she
is Da Winnah, and deals the next round. Efrem can console himself with the
status of Real Winner. The word comes from the Concise Oxford Dictionary of
Current English (1919), and was picked by Johnny Barrs. As noted below, I
combined it with Paul Keating's substantively identical def.


1 A mildly narcotic paste made from the crushed stamens of
various species of anemones. Submitted by Mike Shefler who voted for 2 and
9. One vote from Naylor. Total: 1

2 A tall, often beehive-shaped superstructure set above the
inner sanctum of a Hindu temple in northern Indian temple design. Submitted
by Judy Madnick, who voted for 10 and 11. Votes from Embler, Shefler,
Naylor, Druce and Bourne. Total: 5

3 Breeding station for horses. Submitted by Concise Oxford
Dictionary of Current English (1919), combined with Paul Keating (a stud
farm). Keating voted for 10 and 11. Dictionary did not vote. One vote from
Barrs. D1. Total for Keating: 1

4 A large sand dune with smaller dunes that form on the leeward
and windward faces. Submitted by Shani Naylor, who voted for 1 and 2. One
vote from Lodge. Total: 1

5 A male or female who is the center of attention for a group
of males. Submitted by Daniel Widdis, who voted for 8 and 10. One vote from
Bourne. Total: 1

is squeezed out of the raw cane. Submitted by Debbie Embler, who voted for 2
and 9. No votes. Total: 0

Middle Ages and the 17th century. Submitted by Tim Lodge, who voted for 4
