Palpation. Okay, I missed too many of the letters and I think it means something different? Mutilation is also probably not quite "a deep tear or cut".

I believe that in the United States, 'tuition' is used in the way that 'tuition fee' is used elsewhere. What might be useful is if Quizmaster changed the definition to read: 'Money paid for education (USA)' or something to that effect.
