You have the right to repeat the word. You have the right to hear the definition. Anything you spell can and will be used against you in this spelling bee.
Participants in this year's spelling bee were read their "spelling rights" and challenged by some of the English language's hardest tongue twisters and rule breakers.
A few students with backgrounds in ancient languages were expected to perform well. But some participants expressed frustration with the words they received. In the final round, some spellers received "mammonistic," a word with Aramaic origins, while others received "monopsony," deriving from Greek.
