Thanks to Jefferson Davis for tagging me. I shall reciprocate at the end of this post.
A word that describes me is:
My favorite word is:
Peruse. I love this word. It doesn’t know what its own definition is. At the same time it means to read something thoroughly and to skim over it casually.
My least favorite word is:
Like. Now it’s not really the word I dislike but the common misuse and over use of it, like.
Use these two words in a sentence:
I was, like, perusing the magazine like, and I like couldn’t like, get what they were like, saying, ya’ know.
A word I have to think twice about pronouncing is:
Either \ē-thər also ī- thər \ Well make up your mind! Which one is it?
Dictionaries. Printed or online?
Both. I have a Random House dictionary that weights about 50 lbs. but I like using on line dictionaries as well.
A word whose meaning I cannot seem to retain no matter how many times I look it up is …
Communist. You see I just lump everyone left of Thomas Jefferson as Commies. Yes, I know there are Socialists, Marxists, Stalinists, etc but I just call them all Communists.
Open a dictionary to a random page and find a word you don’t know. Post the word and its meaning.
Manometer an instrument used for measuring the pressure of a fluid
Use the word above and the word you can never remember in a sentence.
The Democrat National Convention wants to outlaw the use of Manometers. 🙂
One of the most overused words in my area of work/study is
Microsoft. Yes, I work in IT also.
Now to quote Jefferson Davis, Let’s see, who can I humiliate, with this meme?
Ok, Wordnerd, Grandad and Granny you win.
Of course, anyone can play. Thanks!
