What a great dinner

Do you live to eat and drink tasty things? Fans of all manner of edibles are often called “foodies.” They’ll go to great lengths to try new and exciting foods, and love to leave a restaurant with a full belly. There are always exciting delicacies awaiting serious food lovers. You just need to be adventurous and open minded!

Take a look at these food words to get a better idea of what we’re talking about. Pick one and create an original GIF image that illustrates the definition of the word. Check out our examples of definition GIFs here.

GIFs are short, moving images that loop continuously, so think carefully about your visualization. Your GIF must present both the word and part of speech graphically on- screen, like this. Get creative with looping, time manipulation, stop-motion or any other interesting film device.

Choose one of these seven words: quaff, delectable, vegetation, brimming, quenched, grub, vittles.

Your GIF must:

  • Define only one word, using the definitions provided
  • Display the word, part of speech, and definition
  • Use original content instead of images or clips from third parties

1. Quaff (verb) - to drink with great thirst

Thought starter: Feeling thirsty? Maybe a refreshing quaff of iced-tea, lemonade, or good ol’ fashioned water would satisfy you. Make a GIF that shows someone greedily quaffing a beverage.

Pro-tip: Writers use the word quaff when someone drinks something heartily. Someone lost in the desert would quaff water greedily.

2. Delectable (adjective) - delightful or delicious

Thought starter: Ever see a plate of food that made your mouth water? That particular dish appeared delectable, and hopefully it tasted that way, too. Make a GIF featuring someone carefully using condiments and decorations to make a meal appear delectable.

Pro-tip: Writers often use the word delectable to describe a satisfying food or meal. A distinctly delicious meal could be called delectable.

3. Vegetation (noun) - plants

Thought starter: Do you prefer salad to steak? If you chose salad, you probably like many different kinds of edible vegetation, from collard greens to cucumbers. Make a GIF featuring someone sorting through different kinds of vegetation in their vegetable garden.

Pro-tip: Writers use the word vegetation when referring to any kind of plant matter. Lush, green jungles are packed with tropical vegetation.

4. Brimming (verb) – filled to the top

Thought starter: Ever pour your favorite beverage to the very top of a cup? That cup was brimming with soda, coffee, or whatever else you wanted to drink. Make a GIF of someone filling a cup with a beverage until it is brimming.

Pro-tip: Writers use the word brimming when talking describing a container filled to the top edge, or brim. After a heavy rainstorm, a barrel might be brimming with water.

5. Quenched (verb) - satisfied one’s thirst

Thought starter: Ever been parched, or incredibly thirsty? Remember how it felt when you finally quenched your thirst with a refreshing beverage? Make a GIF that focuses on someone’s expression right after they quenched their thirst with a large drink.

Pro-tip: Writers use the word quenched when talking about eliminating thirst. The girl quenched her thirst with a tall glass of lemonade.

6. Grub (noun) - food

Thought starter: Need to fill your stomach? Go to the kitchen and make some grub. Make a GIF of someone putting together a big plate of grub.

Pro-tip: Writers use the word grub when referring to basic food. Your average brown-bag lunch contains plenty of grub.

7. Vittles (noun) - food

Thought starter: About to sit down for a nice supper? The table will soon be filled with all kinds of tasty vittles for you to enjoy. Make a GIF of a table covered with tasty vittles.

Pro-tip: Writers use the word vittles when referring to various kinds of food. A buffet is usually overloaded with many different types of vittles.
