OK ... as there are so many readers and writers here, we'll see if this is popular ...

I'll post a list of dictionary definitions and see if you can provide the word. I'll try to balance between making it too hard and making it interesting. I'll try and make it so that, even if you don't one right, you'll at least have heard the word before. For each quiz, all answers will begin with the same letter:

I was already hella confused that you posted something in Russian, while pretty much for 99,9% of us it would be a challenge who has found it in the dictionary first. Instead of being a quiz.

I assume this person asked it was OK to post todays daily quiz? Because I kinda miss seeing yours in a language I can actually understand.
Now because you delagated it, we miss out. snif.

*shamefully admits, she asked for help on her pub quizes too*
