Regular visitors will be familiar with the word of the day posts.
I started them after I came across some unusual words which I thought were worth sharing.
I wasn’t sure how long I’d be able to keep it up, but the English language, and those foreign ones into which I occasionally dip, are still providing more than enough inspiration for a daily post.
I don’t usually try to match the word to events of the day but sometimes serendipitously, it does.
When I started I thought I’d memorise each day’s word and it’s meaning and drop them in to posts or conversation where and when appropriate.
That hasn’t happened but I’m still having fun with the weird and wonderful words and delighting in the richness of language, for which I’m grateful.
