That’s right, kids! An educational thread! Get your mouse away from that Back button on your browser. Since most of you probably spend more time here in a day than at dictionary.com
in a month/year, this thread will probably do you some good.
For those who want to participate in the education of the forum masses, the objective here is to post one word per day, or perhaps even more than one per day if you so wish, but no double posting
(yes, I had to say that), provided with a definition (or definitions, if it has more than one), and preferably in a clean and readable format. If you want to use the word in a sentence as an example, feel free to do so. You may copy and paste from a dictionary site or put the definition in your own words.
As well, commonly misspelled words, idioms, obscure words, and words that just sound funny can also go in this thread. Short grammar and punctuation tidbits can also be posted here.
And if this thread turns into spam, of course I'll move it.
