Yeah you know Onomatopoeia is ridiculously hard to spell. Maybe a bit of leniency with the spelling? Damn i was so close though.

Why use 'Oblast' in an English language vocabulary quiz, I'm sure the Russian language quiz doesn't use 'Shire' as one of their S words.

I tried "omnivoyant" instead of oracle. Would that be acceptable? Also, I couldn't spell ornithology to save my life. I kept writing "orinthology". D'oh.

Was thrown off for awhile by the "plantation supervisor" clue. Was trying to think of a term specific to a plantation, but the answer really is not specific to a plantation at all. I think "supervisor" by itself might be a better clue...or "someone who supervises".
