Asterism is the new word of the day

Asterism is the new word of the day.

Interesting word wouldn’t you say?  If you break it down do you think you can get the meaning of this word?  It actually has three meanings and of course I’ve chosen the third one.  So what say let’s cut to the chase and the meaning of (as’ter – iz’em) is in printing three asterisks placed in triangular form to call attention to a passage.  You know like all of my posts.  Now if I could just figure out how to arrange those I may post it in front of all my blogs.

Good morning James.  I was so glad I got "aphorism", and now you stumped me again.  If you Google "asterism" and look at "images"  you will find examples.  Thanks for another interesting word.

This one's new to me, I'm not sure I've ever seen the word or the arrangement of asterics.

James, I just use a check mark to call attention to a passge I may want to review again. Using an "asterism" would be too much work! Enjoy your day! Hope you are feeling better.

I didn't guess this at all and I am usually pretty good at figuring out words....finding the root word.  I figured the aster part but had no clue.  I love learning at least one new word a day....am a life long learner.

Thanks for sharing.

Well, I was close in figuring this one out. I thought it was asterisks in a row. I often use asterisk in the title of an email message when I want to draw attention to it. That and "priority" and all caps works in conjunction.
