I figured we all waste so much time on here with useless dribble,we might as well learn something.

So i'll try to post a word of the day everyday.If you care to look,fine.If not,thats cool also.


cruciverbalist


A crossword designer or enthusiast.

[From Latin cruci-, stem of crux (cross), + verbalist (one skilled in use
of words), from verbum (word).]

"In a suburban town in Connecticut, Cora Felton has some small measure
of notoriety as the Puzzle Lady, reputed constructor of syndicated
crosswords. The much married and generally alcoholic Cora, though, is
a front for her niece Sherry, the real cruciverbalist."

hey vis...how about words that people actually USE every day and still can't get right. I'll start, and use very simple language/word to help:

your - this word is used to denote ownership etc. Examples:
That is your car. How is your dog? I just slept with your wife.

you're - this word is short for you are.
Examples:
You're gonna be pissed when you read this. You're right! You're the man that's been sleeping with my wife!!

end of today's lesson :redflip
