Up for a little exploring today? Some “word” travel? Here are some fun sites.
To discover the newest words (like halfalogue: one side of a two-person conversation), go to wordspy.
For a fun dictionary with Word of the Day and a thesaurus, try wordnik.
Have a laugh browsing misused words (malaprops) like bare witness and cacoughany at eggcorns.
Adopt an endangered word – one that’s falling out of use and is no longer in most dictionaries. Look them over at savethewords and hear them actually call to you (“Pick me.” “Yo!”) as you scroll across. I, of course, adopted isangelous: equivalent to the angels.
Happy Thanksgiving! And keep your ears open – you may hear a halfalogue or some eggcorns today!
