Thanks for posting the vocab!
What are the last five words after monolithic?? They all kind of mush together. It's hard to differentiate between them.
YIKES! Didn't realize it published as a paragraph instead of a list. Thanks for commenting, glitch is fixed and they're all much easier to read.
Pretty sure some of them have different definitions just because some had 2-3 definitions each so feel free to correct me. acumen (noun)- keen insight.adjudicate (verb)- to settle or determine.anachronism (noun)- something or someone that is not in its correct historical time.apocryphal (adj)- of doubtful authorship or authenticity. disparity (noun)- inequalityThere will always be disparity of wealth within this society.dissimulate (verb)- to disguise or conceal under a false appearance.empirical (adj)- derived from or guided by experience or experimentflamboyant (adj)- strikingly bold or brilliant; showyfulsome (adj)- offensive to good taste, especially as being excessive;overdone or grossimmolate (verb)- to sacrificeimperceptible (adj)- very slight, gradual, or subtle.lackey (noun)- a servile followerliaison (noun)- a person who initiates and maintains such a contact or connection. monolithic (adj)- consisting of one piece; solid or unbrokenmot juste (noun)- the exact, appropriate word nihilism (noun)- total rejection of established laws and institutions.patrician (noun)- a person of noble or high rank; aristocrat. propitiate (verb)- to make favorably inclined; appease; conciliate.sic (verb)-to incite to attack sublimate(adj)-to make nobler or purer
So I got all of the same definintions as Valerie but these were the ones that I did not get the same as her.Liaison- (noun) the contact or connection maintained by communications between units of the armed forces or of any other organization in order to ensure concerted action, cooperation, etcSublimate- (adjective/ verb with object) to divert the energy of (a sexual or other biological impulse) from its immediate goal to one of a more acceptable social, moral, or aesthetic nature or use
Yes I got the same definition for liaison and for sublimate. I am pretty sure Valerie is right on the definition for sublimate but I don’t know who is right for liaison. What are you using to get the definitions?I am using dictionary.com

Thanks Valerie & E'Ana! I think the two sets of definitions for sublimate and liaison say essentially the same things. I prefer the second set because it's more detailed/specific.
So my definitions or Valerie's?
