Today’s muse.

TWITTER:                                                                                                                  I wonder if there are people like me who until recently didn’t know that twitter was a valid word in the dictionary. I bet there are people who still do not know.

MEANING:

*A light repeated chirping sound made by especially small birds.     

*A nervous or excited state.                                                                                                                           (as defined by Chambers 21st dictionary).

HOW CAN U IMPROVE YOUR VOCABULARY WITHOUT ONE?

                   

IMPREGNABLE:                                                                                                         Some years ago, I had a friend who sent me messages on regular basis. One day he sent this text that I can still remember something about it. It was a text with my name as an acronym. Funnily, the only letter of this word I can remember is the letter I and it stood for IMPREGNABLE.  I checked my dictionary then and didn’t find this word so I thought,” it is invalid”. Years later, I found the meaning and it is something I am proud to call myself.

UNORTHODOX:                                                                                                           Every time my friends argued, it was an opportunity for me to learn new words. Glory would always say ‘I am uncommon’. Timi laughed and said, please use a better word. That day, i learnt the word, UNORTHODOX.

MEANING:                                                                                                                *  Different from what is being accepted.                                                                                         (as defined by Oxford advanced learners dictionary                                         – mobile app).

think of MARY SLESSOR, MOTHER THERESA…

                                                                                                      

There is beauty in knowing what others do not know, it sets you apart,puts you on the spotlight. One of the reasons I chose to blog is to have words that are not in our list of everyday words. I hope someone has learnt from this. I remain your friend.
