  5. @Annais:
    For factionalism I got, "the state or quality of being partisan or self-interested".
    @Lizzie:
    For bromide I got, "a platitude or boring person/saying".

    Did you get any different definitions for either of those?

  6. @Cody:
    For factionalism there wasn't a word, it automatically switched it to factional but I got the same definition as you.
