Every time I comment on a website where I have to type a word verification to get my comment posted, I can't help but think, "What a waste! What could possibly be a very helpful word is now going to disappear and never be seen again." With all the attention being paid to "going green" in this country, I think it's time for bloggers to go green and recycle the letter combos used in word verification. (I personally did away with the process to eliminate the waste of words, but some people just aren't as conservation minded!)
I decided several weeks ago to start a meme called "New Word Wednesday", thus creating a dictionary of new words based on the letter combos that pop up in the word verification process. You may feel free to do the same, or to grab my words and use them. (You know, if you use a new word three times, it's in your vocabulary forever; at least that's what I've heard) Just think, we can learn new words and go green just by recycling/reusing the words that show up at comment time.
Here are this week's words:
ayable: (adjective) likely to agree to an action; as in, "Part of the problem if facing is the fact that the House and Senate members are not very ayable."
cutya: (verb) a verbal threat often issued by gang members; as in, "Stay out of our turf or I'll cutya."
evickler: (noun) a person hired by a mortgage company to stand outside a person's foreclosed on property yelling rude remarks until the person moves out; as in, "John had a reputation of being an unruly audience member at comedy clubs, so he was hired by the bank to be their evickler."
factio: (noun) a minor, insignificant truth; as in, "Most of George's argument was based on factios and could not be taken seriously."
nutstat: (noun) a numerical expresssion of the ratio of peanuts in a product required to produce allergic response; as in, " A nutstat of .3241 could cause a deadly reaction in someone allergic to peantus."
Remember: Use a new word in a sentence three times and it's in your vocabulary forever.
