Sovereign: The most powerful person in a country eg: Mr Woody is the sovereign of Room 5!

The longest word I know is 58 leters starting with ll and ending in gogoch.
The English language is one of the hardest languages to learn.
I think it's cause' of all of the rules!

MrWoody said...

HamilTRON said...

I got it off Cambridge Online Dictionaries and put it in my own words.
Sorry if it was wrong.
I'm switching to Oxford or Collins Dictionaries!

Is it seize on kitty Milo's comment???? THe excersize is meant to help us spell, not make us spell words wrong!

kitty milo said...

is it excersize on rosiegals comment? the EXCERSICE is meant to help us spell, noy make us spell words wrong.
mr woody did you spell misspell wrong???

flower kitty said...

I found these words:

Interference, spelt interferance.
Belongings, spelt bellongings

And added after..

Exercise, spelt excersize!

They might be some good words for next weeks spelling list!

I cant think of any more words from this weeks spelling list.

I still think the miscellaneous argument MUST go on - I think I agree with Hamiltron.

Hullucination:

Hullucination is actually spelt Hallucination!! I agree with the definiton though.
For xenophobia, the dictionary says:
The fear or hatred of people from other countries.

But if the word is xenoPHOBIA wouldn't it just be the fear of people from other countries?

kitty milo said...

is one gogoch in HamiltrON's comments?

hamiltron also said- things that are not connected with each each other. that's bad grammar.
i dont know any others but some of our names might be misspelt...i hope i didn't spell any words wrong
