Official Vocab Guidelines 1




Buenos dias, fellow vocabulary enthusiasts! Tin Blott here. You may remember my New Year's resolution to get to grips with the inspirational poetic majesty and unrealised potential profit locked somewhere within our beloved American English language. Because competitive content is apparently built from "words", however far-fetched that may sound. You'll need to trust me on this one.
