In total, this Vocab-ability post features 4 entries that begin with the letter “R."

(Please see my additional comments and notes below the entries.)   Vocab-ability–197 (rect, reg = right, straight)

good and informative post as always @maje.tytyty. possible add - "rectangle" for 'rect/reg'? - with 4 "straight" lines and 4 "right" angles?!?

·

Done. Much thanks (as noted in the post, just above my bio). That's a perfect example, with the two stems translating directly into English.

(Since I tried to limit all examples to one line in length, I did not add the "straight lines" phrase. But that's hinted in the term "quadrilateral." Godda love the magic of language!!!)

Again, much appreciation for helping me to "add value."

And extra, additional, bonus thanks to the current value of Steem!!!! Apparently, on Steemit, "adding value" is reciprocal.

As always, very informative. Your knowledge will help to save face and not be ridiculed, through ignorance. Thank you for your knowledge. Good luck.

Как всегда, очень познавательно. Ваши знания помогут сохранить лицо и не быть осмеянным, через незнание. Спасибо Вам за знание. Удачи.

Good point. An expanded vocabulary not only allows us to express ourselves more clearly, it also ensures that we will not appear to be complete fools. ☺

I didn't know there was a rupture verb and noun and ridicule verb and noun.
This weekend I will have an English test, wish me good luck!

Sorry, I was gone to Vientiane, on a visa run. Best of luck on your test! (Hope I aint tooooo late.)

I'm glad to read that you are studying these posts closely and learning some important details about these words. There's plenty to learn in the material that I am presenting, and you are one of the model students. Thanks for your responses and your encouragement.

In Vientiane! Really? I thought you were based somewhere in India! I lived in Laos for 6 months and in Phnom Penh for 3 years. Now I moved to Siem Reap since 8 months.
Thanks for sharing :)

Hey! What's up? I hope you are ok - we need you here.

·

Just a short visa run to Vientiane. Am back now.

Given the recent jump in the price of Steem, are you sure that you "need me here"? It looks like Steemit will do fine even without me. ☺ Nevertheless, I'll stick around and do what I can to increase the value even more.

Thanks, and realize that we need people like you here, too. Keep plugging away!

Why did you copy-paste this? It's from my post above, and there is no reason for you to post it here as a comment. And it's very unethical for you to essentially "claim" it as your own.

Please refrain from copy-pasting material that you did not write.
