To prove that you have found the word, please quote the page, percentage or LOC (Kindle) and include the sentence in which it appears.
Audiobooks are allowed so long as you can quote the page/%/LOC and the sentence. (Eg Using whispersync or finding that sentence in some other way.)
You must find the actual word or the word's root word must be at the core with the meaning essentially remaining the same ~ just turned into a noun, adjective, adverb etc. No prefixes or hyphenated extensions. An extension is allowed where it is often the accepted spelling eg goodbye or good-bye.
Where a word has more than one meaning, either meaning may be used. Eg coast (beachfront) or coast (moving without effort) etc
Please post all entries, updates, final posts and questions in this thread.
