Could you spell clinquant or malaxage? Or define them? Might want to brush up on the Merriam-Webster before hitting this weekly bee in Somerville. Nicole Pierce and Victor Tiernan of local dance theater company Egoart are the hosts and word pickers — hang in there long enough and you might score a gift certificate to Highland Kitchen. That's a tasty p-r-i-z-e.
