This week's contest earned its first of two winners yesterday: Fellini69 did the heavy lifting to figure out that tergiversation means "speaking intentionally vaguely or misleadingly." That's one of the two meanings of this week's word; do YOU know the other meaning?
Fellini69 also guessed at the word's etymology, and got a good guess in by connecting the word to conversation. (They are related!)
The grand prize for this great guesswork is ONE FREE HOUR OF SPEECH COACHING. I'll connect directly with Fellini69 next week to redeem the prize. And I'll be more accessible to all of you wonderful blog readers then, after the launch of my newly revamped website. Look for the link and further info. in Monday's post.
