Apparently, the American Heritage Dictionary has compiled a list of 100 words every high school graduate should know. Despite the fact that we don't know close to a dozen of the entries on this list ourselves — abjure, abrogate, abstemious, bowdlerize, gamete (wait, we learned that today!), hypotenuse, jejune, moiety, orthography, & quasar — we have some words (and phrases) we'd like to suggest instead. Check out our random, hastily-put together list after the jump (check out American Heritage's list here) and submit your own in the comments and we'll put together our own "Hot 100" list and have it up tomorrow.
