1. It’s es­ti­mated only onethird of the peo­ple in its na­tive coun­try can speak this Asian lan­guage. But in a coun­try with 22of­fi­cial lan­guages, it is still the plu­ral­ity. 2. Shows at the Laura Pels The­ater on 46th Street or at the Or­pheum The­ater on 2nd Av­enue are clas­si­fied as this kind of show, which are el­i­gi­ble for six dif­fer­ent awards. 3. Up to 10 per­cent of the pop­u­lace suf­fers from some form of this man­age­able dis­or­der which was given its name in 1878, I mean 1887, and sig­ni­fies dis­so­nance be­tween the func­tion and the struc­ture of the brain. 4. In a pop­u­lar 1985film this unit of mea­sure­ment, one of which is roughly equiv­a­lent to 1.5 mil­lion hp, is re­peat­edly mis­pro­nounced. 5. This World War I vet­eran was liv­ing in Cuba when he won the 1953 Pulitzer for Fic­tion and the 1954No­bel for Lit­er­a­ture. 6. For 76 years this en­tity en­joyed godly sta­tus, but in 2006 was de­moted for fail­ing to meet all the met­rics of def­i­ni­tion. 7. The de­fense mech­a­nism of this mar­su­pial is un­in­ten­tional. When threat­ened, its body stiff­ens and it re­leases a foul odor from its anal gland.
