freerice -- if you like words or helping people, you have to try this

FREE Rice: for each word you get right, we donate 10 grains of rice through the United Nations to help end world hunger.

here's my play by play once it started getting difficult:

aphotic -- 130 grains, vocab level 43...

almost got me before I noticed the "photo"

pretermit, 140 grains of rice... vocab level 43...

guessed that one.

ensiform means "sword shaped"? up to vocab level 44.

and "armiger" means squire.

and "attaint" does mean disgrace.

"serval" -- african wildcat. I'm on a roll? MY BRAIN HURTS! VOCAB LEVEL 45! 190 grains of rice.

"grimalkin" -- combatant or elderly female cat? the latter wins me another 10 grains of rice!

conspectus/synopsis sounded right...

ism gives me tarantism as an "urge" (to dance) and vocab 46.

ontogeny... behavior? NO, maturation! I DIE at 220 grains of rice! down to 45, and I give up for now.
