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:
adepsi: (adjective) being able to accept any cola substitute for Pepsi; as in, "Tom was not fussy about his soft drinks because he was adepsi."
micen: (verb) to reduce one to terror; as in, "Veronica could micen a man with a raise of her eyebrow."
physt: (noun) a hand gesture used by someone in combat; as in "John held up his physts, well-prepared to phyght."
pryke: (noun) a motor operated tricycle; as in, "Alexander was so spoiled, on his 4th birthday, his father bought him a Harly-Davidson pryke."
scrugorr: (noun) Igorr's promiscuous brother; as in, "Kate's mother warned her repeatedly against Scrugorr, but Kate agreed to date him anyway."
Remember, use a word 3 times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!
