Super. Thanks!

Spellbound was the most suspensful movie I watched last year.

That would be the nascent blog. N-A-S-C-E-N-T. Nascent.

Or inchoate, I-N-C-H-O-A-T-E, inchoate, a word I have never heard spoken but have read for years.

I finally looked it up last year and had the online dictionary pronounce it for me. But I suspect that I never hear it because so many people are unsure of its pronunciation.

And, for the record, it went like this: in-KO-uht.

(While I'm on the topic: What a great feature! Thank you, Merriam-Webster Online. Thank you.)
