Default [Dixonary] Round 2950: ACERSECOMIC Results

Votes were widely spread this round, with 11 different definitions receiving at least one nod. Only two definitions received more than two votes -- Chris Carson authored #3 and collected topped the list of player submissions with 3 votes.┬*┬* Seven votes, however, went to #4, the true def, despite it being described variously as "peculiar" and "absurd".



Despite its rarity, the etymology of da woid is rather straightforward with Latin roots derived from earlier Greek: a- (not) + keirein (cut short) + koma (hair). ┬*It was apparently rather common for Roman and Greek youths to wear their hair long until they came of age.



Tim Lodge and Dave Cunningham tied for the lead with 4 points each, and while Dave sits atop the rolling scores following the previous round, it's Tim who will beat him by a single pip in the upcoming tally.
