Many Entries and so much to learn today for me!!
Acrid, acrimonious, acerbis, enamor, perambulate, perennial, aural!!!
Also, last slide- Vocab-ability–18 (aux, aug = increase, add)- is identical to the previous one, is that right?

Thank you, my dear!!!!!!! Apparently I had slipped up, and had pasted the same slide in both #17 and #18. I always double-check and triple check and more, but somehow, I did not catch that mistake of mine.

I've updated and corrected it, with the correct slide for #18. Thanks to you, my error is corrected before it's put on the blockchain for perpetuity. THAT would be rather embarrasing!

Much appreciated (as you can see). If you ever see any other errors, please inform me ASAP.
Cheers!

Thank you so much for your nice upvote. I always check all your slides for my personal challenge to see what I know and what I can guess.
I am on it, don't worry :)
And I didn't know that august was a grandiose person. I can't think to say @majes.tytyty you are august!

Hmmm, I would never claim to be "august," but if my work / presence on Steemit makes it appear as though I AM august, then I'm pleased.
