Word of the Day...

Recommended Posts

I tried this before but didn't keep up with it. :icon_redface: I'll try to do better this time around but it won't be everyday that I post a word.

If you read a word in a post here on OB and you do not know the definition, please post it here. We can all increase our vocabulary together. :icon_mrgreen:(I know, most of you are saying, "How boring!")



I'll start with a word Annie used yesterday:

Milieu - the physical or social setting in which something occurs or develops

My point had nothing to do with anyone's ignorance, but rather with their unwillingness to exist in a milieu where their ideas can be addressed from a different perspective--



Here's one that dh loves and apparently our pastor does too because he has used it in his sermons these past 3 Sundays: :lol:

Juxtaposition - to place side by side

These ideas are in juxtaposition with each other.



I love words; humor me! :bleh:

How interesting...I have always labored under the delusion that juxtaposition means "to switch around." Thank you for disabusing me of this notion! Now you know I'm going to have to go and look this word up to see if it really doesn't mean "to switch around."

Thanks for brightening my day. I love words also.

EDIT: It DOES mean only "to place side by side"!!! Thanks for showing me a new word, BHD! Now I will use it confidently...just watch!

Actually, I gave the definition for juxtapose. :ooops

Juxtaposition means "side by side". Juxtapose means "to place side by side". One is a verb; the other is a noun.

Oh, but I knew what you meant... :)

No prob. :cool Dh is always looking for a way to incorporate some form of juxtapose into his sentences. :lol:

I know that you knew that I knew what I was talking about. Know what I mean? :coffee

Seriously, known grammatical errors bug me. I have to correct them. Don't you just love that humongo word I used - "bug"? :frog

Paradigm-Shift::::::::: A serious epiphany wherein an individual is convinced that his line of thinking has been all wrong from way back.

((((((Normally these two words are not hyphenated, but I did that to fit the style of the thread. :wink )))))))

That's another great one, pneu-engine. There's just something about the word paradigm that makes its user sound erudite...

Alimantado posted this word today:


Impoverished - Deprived of natural richness or strength; limited or depleted

How impoverished this forum would be without your posts, Jerry.


Me! :hide
