you're in grad school

words you should be able to spell and/or pronounce:

  • Colombia
  • non-potable
  • diaspora
  • trafficking
  • narco-trafficking
  • psychosomatic
  • nuclear
  • proliferation
  • PSI (i know, expecting you to remember proliferation security initiative is tricky - but not knowing the initials?)
  • hegemony/hegemonic
there are probably more, but these were just mispronounced and/or misspelled in one class this afternoon.
