Illocutionary is the new word of the day.
Just a couple of weeks ago I wrote about this using another word.  Until today I did not know there was more than that one word to explain what happens to me every day.  Now I have two words to try and use to explain my problem.  So I will not keep you in suspense any longer the meaning of (il’e kyoo’she ner’e) is of or having to do with that aspect of utterance which relates to the speaker’s intention as distinct from what is actually said.  That explains everything doesn’t it?  … (9 comments)

Limb is the new word of the day.
Okay when you read this word what was the first thing that popped into your mind?  Was it a tree limb good guess?  Did the old saying out on a limb cross your mind another good guess but that is not right.  The meaning of (lim) I’m looking for is a border, margin, or edge.  So did you get it correct what say you?  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  This is the second post for today look for the first I’m sure you will enjoy … (6 comments)

I’m glad to say I’m one of these.  If you are also than you understand where I’m coming from if you are not one I’m so sorry for you.  Okay here is a hint (if you tell me you will do something I fully expect for you to follow through).  Longest hint I’ve ever given. Another hint if you tell me to meet you somewhere at a certain time you best be there on time or before.  So the meaning of (punk til’e es) is being very careful about every detail, very … (5 comments)

Tabes is the new word of the day.
I was doing this about 3 months ago and I knew it.  Thankfully I changed doctors and was placed on the right track and now I’m just as sassy as I’ve ever been.  I have seen my share of this during my other career and it is not a pretty site.  The meaning of (ta’bez) is a wasting away, any wasting or atrophy due to disease.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.

bentonville arkansas real estate: Xeric is the new word of the day - 01/01/13 04:48 AM
 
Xeric is the new word of the day.
Okay according to my Webster’s® there are not many words starting with the letter (X).  So I think this is the first word I’ve posted using a word beginning with that letter.  So since this is probably going to be difficult I’ll just cut to the chase and tell you the meaning of (zir’ik) is of, pertaining to or having dry or desert like conditions.  You know like this last summer we had.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.

Out of all the people I would have bet money the wife would know this word and when she didn’t I knew I had a winner, winner chicken dinner.  Actually we are having potato soup tonight (gotta love it).  The meaning of (kal’e fen) is a notation often placed in a book at the end, giving facts about its production.  She is an avid reader and I was surprised when she did not know the meaning.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  This is the second … (5 comments)

Dysgraphia is the new word of the day.
I tell you I must have one of the smartest wives on the planet.  I spelled this word for her and she nailed it.  Anyway I just can’t seem to get much of anything by her but she says I have this problem from time to time.  Sometimes I like it and sometimes I don’t.  The meaning of (dis graf’e) is impairment of the ability to write as a result of brain dysfunction.  By George I think she has nailed it.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of … (6 comments)

Portend is the new word of the day.
OK it’s not pretending it’s portend.  I bet most of you have had dreams that seems so real this could and maybe has happened.  I know when my incident in 1987 happened I had a thought in the back of my mind it would happen but not to the extent it did or to the extent of the way it affected me.  So now for the meaning of (por tend’) to be an omen or warning of; foreshadow; presage.  So have you experienced that 6th sense and ran or have you had … (8 comments)

Frog is the new word of the day.
Now, now you people ought to know me by now not to jump to conclusions as you know I usually have a few surprises.  So I know what the first thought you had in mind and I would also but let’s examine this a little closer.  Frog has many meanings but the ones I’ve chosen is a fastening on a belt for carrying a sword, bayonet, etc.  A corded or braided loop used as a fastener or decoration on clothing.  Now did you guess the right one?  Enjoy the day

Coruscation is the new word of the day...
I possess this sometimes.  You did catch the sometimes didn’t you?   Anyway it doesn’t happen often and as I grow in age the time frame seems to be getting longer and longer between them.  There are people whom I know and have known who possess this and still can use it at will.  Now for the meaning of (kor’eska’shen) is a sudden brilliant display as of wit.  What did you expect from me something informative?  Enjoy the day.

Chickee is the new word of the day.
I’ve seen these but not lately.  This for where it is located would be cheap to build.  If they say necessity is the reason you can sure put this one on the menu.  I bet ya this one was difficult to build with the tools at hand.  Anyway the meaning of (chik’e) is a Seminole Indian house built on stilts, with open sides and a thatched roof of palm leaves.

Haulm is the new word of the day.
In olden times and still in some places today homes are made of this.  While I think this is a good thing for some places do you think it is still useful now?  Have you had your thinking caps on and figured out the meaning of the word?  If not don’t feel lonesome so if you haven’t again don’t feel lonesome.  The meaning of {hom} is straw or hay used for thatching, bedding.  Interesting word isn’t it?

That’s right you heard it here first.  The origin of the word is Yiddish and I read it in a book last night.  Not that I was born last night (actually night before last) but who’s counting.  Anyway I had I just had to look this one up and low and behold here it is.  The meaning of (chach’ke) is a knickknack, collectible, trinket.  So how many clients have you had that absolutely refused to get rid of their trinkets?

Naches is the new word of the day
I wonder for those who will read this if they can guess what the word means before reading the meaning.  For me it was of course my parents, my wife and kids and very few in between.  Have you guessed the meaning yet?  If you haven’t you won’t get it so here is the meaning of (nakh’es) pleasurable pride, esp. in another’s achievements.  So what do you think about today’s word?

Well I knew there was a word for this and now after reading this post you’ll know.  I wonder if these people get paid for doing this job.  If so I want to know where to apply.  So without further adieu the meaning of (ne al’e jiz’em) a new word or a new meaning for an established word.  Interesting job where do I apply?

bentonville arkansas real estate: When I was a cop I was known as a “martinet” of which I wore it proudly. - 02/03/12 05:51 AM
 
Yes I have had several cops and deputies refer to me by many names but I bet they never thought of calling me this.  If they had I would have needed to look this one up.  After retiring I’ve heard some of the names they called me.  After leaving they all knew they had lost someone who cared for them and still do so the meaning of (mart’n et’) is any very strict disciplinarian or stickler for rigid regulations.  While they all cursed me under their breath they knew who would be first to defend their actions.  I do miss … (9 comments)

Ever had someone pull a “levant” on you?
You bet ya I have more than once.  The problem is I know it’s going to happen again but I do hope it is not as often.  Of course while you’re reading this post start wondering how many times this has happened to you.  Now I guess it would be a good time to give you the meaning of (le vant’) is to disappear unexpectedly, leaving unpaid debt.  So now what say you?
