But Jacob doesn't think Ghd Air
Many spellers go through a routine before spelling a word. Even if they know it, they'll ask questions to make sure: definition, language of origin, part of speech, alternate pronunciations. Finalist Kate Miller of Abilene, Texas, said she'd ask all those questions even if she was asked to spell "cat." Then, before spelling, the lanky eighth grader "air types" the word on an imaginary keyboard before spelling it.
Jacob, easily the most demonstrative of the dozen spellers who will compete Thursday night for more than $33,000 in prizes, said he was surprised to have made it so far in his first National Spelling Bee appearance. The 15 year old home schooled eighth grader was even more amazed that two of last year's finalists won't be joining him.

"On the page, I have a general sense of where the word will be when they ask it. It's like flipping through the dictionary in my mind," Sriram said.
"I'm calm but I'm very excitable at the same time," he said. "I know what I know and I know there's not a ton about spelling words that I don't know. I'm confident that either I'll get a word I know or I'll get a word I can piece out."

of the big three are gone. The holy trinity of spelling!"
Vanya Shivashankar, a three time finalist whose older sister won the bee in 2009, was bounced after Thursday's semifinal round. Vanya, a 12 year old seventh grader from Olathe, Kansas, spelled two words correctly onstage with her usual aplomb, but she did not score highly enough on two computerized spelling and vocabulary tests to advance.
any of that is necessary. He knew both words he got during the semifinals, including "euripus," a narrow tract of water with violent currents. He yelled "I know it!" and, after spelling it correctly, he shook his fists in the air.
Sriram hopes his experience and another year to study and shore up his weaknesses will pay off. He says he's studied the dictionary so much that he has a "GPS system" in his brain and can recall the page where a word appears.
The finalists include only one holdover from last year: 14 year old Sriram Hathwar of Corning, New York, who finished third. Another former finalist, Syamantak Parma of Friendswood, Texas, misspelled "circumforaneous," which means "wandering from place to place," and saw his final appearance in the bee end with the dreaded ringing of a bell.
