All – first, my apologies for the delay, which as Efrem explained a few minutes ago, was the unfortunate result of my travel over the past 5 days. Despite the relatively small number of entries, it was an interesting round. As you can see below, Efrem Mallach and Judy Madnick were tied with 5 votes apiece. In addition, they were both tied in the four-round rolling scores with 9 apiece. Since Judy has the higher cumulative score since Round 1, she is Da Winnah, and deals the next round. Efrem can console himself with the status of Real Winner. The word comes from the Concise Oxford Dictionary of Current English (1919), and was picked by Johnny Barrs. As noted below, I combined it with Paul Keating’s substantively identical def.

I'd be more than happy to pass the deal on to Efrem. LOL! Seriously, though, new word within a few hours. Busy morning and early afternoon here.
