Can you use "syzygy" in a sentence?
Putnam Valley Middle School is hosting their 25th annual spelling bee competition, and there's a quirky cast of characters on either side of the microphone. Like word pronouncer Douglas Panch, returning to the Bee after a long hiatus due to a mysterious incident five years ago. Or grade schooler William Barfée, who spells words with his feet.
Tensions run high as the words become multisyllabic, and the pressure mounts.
What could possibly go wrong?
