Spelling Bee

We had a spelling bee at work today to determine who to send on a team to the annual Boston Adult Literacy Foundation spelling bee. Our resident puzzle master came up with a list of words, one starting with each letter (knowing that helped me get the score I did, which was 12). For your enjoyment, here are the words, conveniently linked to their definitions:

aficionado
tachyon
jojoba
