I agree, please accept Tzar, that was how all my history books growing up spelled it. (and I am not that old, 28), I will accept that the books we were using were old.

That's completely correct. "Tzar" should at least be accepted as an alternative option.

Agree. "Angry ranting" is one description of a tantrum. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tantrum

I think that 'Tantrum' is not always an angry rant, when you see a little kid throw a 'Tantrum' it is often just a case of physical contortions and temper. Whereas Tirade is an angry speech in effect.

yes, tantrum is being angry screaming and perhaps hitting stuff around you. A tirade is like an angry monologue. So basicly one mostly lacks the speech part (besides so flung words like I hate you, and I want it I want it etc) And a tirade usually lacks the physical aggression

I have no idea what either "poi" or "taro" are.

We had poi when we were in Hawaii. Taro has leaves shaped liked elephant ears or arrowheads, and the roots are pounded to make a starch which is called poi. It's pretty bland, but ours was a pretty purplish color.

There are good ways to eat taro. Poi is not one of them.

Doesn't say so in the instructions, but I think it's kind of accepted that all answers are just one word for these vocab quizzes.

I tried "tanners, tanningrack, tanning, tanningshop" Tannery would have made sense though. Good job brain

totem for talisman?
+1
level 79
Jul 12, 2018
Similar, but talisman is definitely a better answer. Are totems usually worn?

Totems are big enough to wear people as talismans.

@someone2018 I thinking you are confusing totem with totempole..

@cornflakesfu totems can be worn I guess though they usually arent. It is usually abstract, symbolic. An animal can be a totem, or a (sacred) natural object, and consequentially Images representing that are also totems.

Man I read: Magical item worn from supernatural protection. So an item used so much that it has wear and tear and gotten old and flimsy...

Please accept just tanner as well. It’s kind of a place, as I imagine one could say “I’m going to the tanner’s.” Also, very tricky with teetotaler. I was stuck figuring out how to make the temperance movement into a noun.

Got them all except for one. In New Zealand, poi are used in Maori dances, and were made from flax and swamp reeds, and I just couldn't figure out what else the answer could be!
