Words you learn when English is your 2nd language 

I just overheard thru the cube walls the use of this word:

Pronunciation: "di-sam-'bi-gy&-"wAt
Function: transitive verb
: to establish a single semantic or grammatical interpretation for

I had no idea that word existed, and i've been speaking English all my life. My cubemate has been speaking it proportionally some number of years less than that, and yet it just rolls off his tongue like he's saying "run" or "like" or some other basic anglo-saxon word. so now i'm jealous.
