[lan-YAP; LAN-yap] the word lagniappe refers to an "unexpected something extra." it could be an additional doughnut (as in a "baker's dozen,") a free "one for the road" drink. what's your lagniappe?

You should enter a spelling bee -- the study book is called "Paideia," which means "the training of the physical and mental faculties in such a way as to produce a broad enlightened mature outlook, harmoniously combined with maximum cultural development." Webster's Third New Interenational Dictionary (copyright 2002, Merriam-Webster.

I'll be competing in a spelling bee next Saturday.
