Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was toxophilite. Merriam-Webster defines toxophilite as a person fond of or expert at archery. I think we can say that Katniss Everdeen is a toxophilite. 

Today’s WOW is diktat. I can’t wait to find out the real definition for this one–it’s just too much fun to say! But until we learn the actual definition next week, here are my guesses for diktat:

diktat: (dik-ˈtät) 1. a toddler’s way of saying “Tic Tac” 2. Richard’s tattoo 3. the Turkish word for dictation
