Orly admits that he is m aladroit (솜씨없는, 서투른) at giving directions under the best circumstances; however, that is exacerbated (약화시키다) by the fact that he is new to town and barely knows his own way around. 512. An atmosphere of antipathy (반감, 혐오) seemed to permeate (널리퍼지다) the campus on the weekend. We played against the Springfield state panthers our biggest rivals. 513.

The menu was clearly drawn from a mélange (혼합물) of disparate (본질적으로 다른) sources, as Indian, Mediterranean (지중해인종의), and American Southwest dishes were all represented. 533.

The soft music programmed on the concert would have had a somnolent (졸린) effect were it not for a single aleatory (우연에 의한) element: occasionally the piano seemed out of tune. 535.

Carmen’s frustration with her husband’s frugality (frugal: 검소한, 절약하는) finally came to a head when he refused to spend five more dollars for a nonstop flight, and she called him a

Clouds on the horizon may very well portend (전조가되다, 예고하다) rain, but rarely are they harbingers (예고되다) of tornadoes. 551. Should those clouds be coupled with a tornado siren, however, it is foolhardy (무모한) not to assume that you are in imminent (절박한) danger. 552. Rarely have I met such an egocentric (자기중심의) individual as Howard; any topic of conversation will induce (권유하다, 설득하다) him to start a story about one of his fabulous (믿기어려운, 우화적인) adventures. 553.

The collection of volumes in the library is so eclectic (취사선택적인) that I suspect one could find books on even the most arcane (신비로운) of topics. 555.
