Default [Dixonary] Voting deadline clarified for ROUND 3144 - KANTIKOY - VOTE NOW!

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

Here are 13 definitions for the word KANTIKOY 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  Sunday, February 22, at 10 a.m. Eastern Standard Time. 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!



 



Judy Madnick

It does have a certain Hellenic sound to it, although that’s probably misleading. But why would you dry entrails on a spool? I’d think a rack would work better.

Anyway, I’ll go with 6 and 13.
