  1. Quarter:
    Turn one-quarter to unloosen the strap.

  2. Quartet:
    Now that the word has jogged my memory, I may search out some string quartet groups to listen to as I type out these sentences.

  3. Quadrangle:
    I learned that all shapes that have four angles are called quadrangles.

  4. Quart:
    I used to put a couple of quarts of oil into the engine when I was younger.

  5. Quadruped:
    It is my mission in life to create the first quadruped from my very own spit.

  6. Tetrapod:
    If you find a tiktaalik in this rubble, you will know that we have found the wrong tetrapod and we will lose the rest of our funding.

Good work!

My Vocab practice

1.- My work day starts at a quarter to seven.

2.- A year ago I attended a concert dedicated to the elderly of my state and played for them a string quartet called "Angelic Strings".

3.-One of the best fighters that moves with great agility in the quadrangle is Manny Pacquiao.

4.- I need a quart of oil painting to paint the kitchen.

5.- The horse is one of the most intelligent, beautiful, elegant animals as well as being my favorite quadruped.

6.- There have been interesting discussions about the definition of "tetrapod." Many consider tetrapods to all terrestrial vertebrates with legs.

Good work!

I agree about horses. And about Manny!! Cheers.
