An interesting combination. If you haven't seen it yet, check out the Free Rice site, part of poverty.com. Here, you can test your vocabulary, and for each correct definition you choose, 10 grains of rice will be donated to the United Nations World Food Program. Yesterday alone, well over 212, 600,000 grains of race were donated.
I like to think that 319 of those grains came from me--and I also learned that plangent means resounding or reverberating. So there you go!
