In the day 1 Prefixes Rally Embry came up as meaning Full.
'Embry' isn't really a prefix, 'Embryo' is.
I think I found the reference for 'Full' - a German website called LEO network which is a learn english site. Probably a got lost in translation thing.

In the subject Speech Styles, 'Obloquence' appears.
It isn't a word. A google search returns only one link (in English - there are several in other languages) and it's to Factacular.

I have more corrections & was wondering if it's better to do them mostly in separate posts or in one big chunk.
Most are one per subject but some are multiples in a single subject.

Embry appears to be a form of embryo. Have changed it to embryo and the meaning to 'earliest stage of something' which is its broadest meaning.

Oprobrious is the closest I can find to Obloquence but doesn't fit the pattern of the others so I have removed the fact. Not sure the correct term for these words is speech styles but I can't find a better term to use.

One post is fine so long as the subject is clearly indicated.

Thanks.

Don't think modes is quite right either.

Good suggestion, but how about going really simple, and I don't think it would affect the form of the questions:  'Words that describe speech' ?
