Yes- I have no idea what *Syzygy* means, or its part of speech or
application. See? I don't know more than I thought! -ro

I was an astronomy minor in college, this one I might be able to pull 
out - though I need to find a way to get a discussion going about our 
skies.  That is how I know the word - this is not going to be 
easy.  Wish me well.

6) From: Scott Miller
That would be an impressive Scrabble word. There are only 2 *Y* tiles and
the single *Z*, so at least one blank tile plus at least access to other
letters on the board in addition to what was in your rack.
Weird things like this do happen; last night, my girlfriend got both of the
*V* tiles on the last draw of the game ... one of the rare times where I
beat her!
cheers,
Scott

The Gaelic poet has no use for syzygy?

8) From: Lindsay Murphy
Syzygy - a confluence of planets, specifically three planets in a straight 
line as viewed from Earth.  Generally thought to be a Bad Thing in astrology, 
blamed for everything from lottery results to the Apocalypse.
"Syzygy" is the shortest word in the English language containing three Ys, and 
also the co-longest (tied with "rhythm") to contain no vowels.
...School spelling bee champ seven years running, 2nd place twice in the 
regionals (the one before the Big Bee in Washington).  Lost on "mignonette" 
and "tintinnabulation" respectively.

the real difficulty in the word is working it into every day
conversation. I managed to do it today. However, it maybe months
before it is possible again Now selvage is another story.
