Can you Guess the Word? Part Three
Are you ready for the third Guess the Word round-up? Of course you are. Here are the videos that have kept you guessing for the last six weeks.
Each of the video definitions below illustrate the meaning of one useful, commonplace word. Simply watch a video and see if you can guess which word the scenario describes. To check your answer, follow the link beneath the video to the word’s dictionary entry page, where lexicographer extraordinaire Susie Dent will guide you through each of the examples in the supplementary definition video.
