No clue. I'll waste my votes on these:
  
7. In a Basque Pelota court, a small wall at the intersection of the front and right walls, at 45° to both.

  and

10. A traversing base frame, or movable railway, along which the carriage of a barbette or casemate gun moves backward and forward.

6 and 10 please, but the definition I sent you, Ann, is missing from the list. Please check your spam folder for an email from chow...@gmail.com. Thanks.

I’m so sorry, Debbie. Yes, it was there,  but I can’t really add it now, can I?  It would be a bit obvious. I didn’t see anything in the rules about this. Do you know what I’m supposed to do in this situation?

 

Regards

Ann

It happens, so don't feel bad. Typically the dealer gives the player a couple of points. It's at the dealer's discretion.

It's up to you, but the most common solution is to give the "owner" of the missing definition 2 "dealer points."

Look in The "Real" Rules for "dealer points".

6 & 8 for me. I liked 7, but it doesn't really look like a Basque word.
