ABC's for Smart Kids

When we were in our early years in kindergarten and elementary school, we learned our alphabet with easy words, and we expected to remember it with the help of a song (some ABC song that has the same tune as "twinkle, twinkle little star"). There are schools for gifted children. These schools wouldn't have accepted regular old you or me. In these special schools they also teach the alphabet to genius kids, but instead of putting it all to a song, they decide to spend one day covering a topic starting with the corresponding letter in the alphabet. That way, they'll have the whole 26 letters of the alphabet memorized in one month, and they have covered some useful topics.

Now, you must understand they won't spend a whole day talking about "apple" and the next about "balloon". These are genius kids, so they've decided to cover all the basic topics in this elementary school, including but not limited to: geography, astronomy, geology, biology, physics, health, psychology, theology, Latin, ancient Greek, literature, spelling, history, government, law, business, business management, accounting, algebra, geometry, calculus, and chemistry. Here are the words of the day:

A - accelerometer
B - brachycatalectic
C - cynarctomachy
D - dextrosinistral
E - epiphenomenon
F - frontogenesis
G - geromorphism
H - haematencephalon
I - intertessellation
J - jentacular
K - kwashiorkor
L - leucopoiesis
M - magnetohydrodynamic
N - nonagenarian
O - onomatopoeia
P - parapsychology
Q - quadragintesimal
R - retromorphosis
S - suppressio veri
T - theopathy
U - ultracrepidarian
V - viscerotonic
W - wrack
X - xenodocheionology
Y - ypsiliform
Z - zoetrope

P.S. I made up one of these words

K - Kwashiorkor is probably the one you made up

Nope, Kwashiorkor is a disease found in children in West Africa caused by a lack of proteins and vitamins in their diet. Sorry, try again!
