CAN YOU WIN THE NATIONAL SPELLING BEE? Here's your chance: uh-po-juh-TOOR-uh, from the Italian, meaning "an embellishing note, usually one step above or below the note it precedes and indicated by a small note or special sign."

Congratulations to Anurag Kashyap for winning this year's Bee, spelling that and all these other words too. (Lots of Italian roots, it seems.)

live via Shonda:

Aliya went down. Samir just went down on "roscian."

Anurag Kashyap won the whole thing on [see above] and then burst into tears.

And that's it. It's over. We have ourselves a new champion.

I worry, though, about Samir. I hope he lives to spell another day...
