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:
auskeg: (noun) a small wooden container used for carrying beer in Australia; as in, "Nicole Kidman seldom ventured far without her auskeg."
brummet: (noun) a soft, round muffin like scone made from bran and rum; as in, "Mother's brummets were a breakfast favorite."
coksmouc: (noun) a small sock-like garment worn by men in the Arctic climates to keep their genitals warm; as in, "Rodney was glad when he went hunting in Newfoundland that he had remembered to wear his coksmouc."
egram: (noun) a female grandparent who spends much time in the internet; as in, "Tanya occasionally reads her egram's blog."
ignerave: (verb) to spout untrue information due to ignorance; as in, "Rush Limbaugh has been know to ignerave about politics."
Don't forget: Use a word three times in a sentence and it's in your vocabulary forever!
