JB's WORD OF THE DAY!

JB's picture

In hopes of surning some good intelectual thought, I have decided to announce my "Word Of The Day" thread. I will post a word every morning. they will be interesting words, regular words, and just plan bizzare. they will primarily consist of English words, with the oacassional french word. (as they are the only languages I Know)

Todays word is: crescendo

DISCUSS!

Das Wort

Actually, "crescendo" is an Italian word that's been appropriated by English. It is a musical term describing a gradual increase in volume. I think that in the fine gay tradition, we should redefine it to have some kind of dirty sexual meaning. It technically means "crescent," so what could we use it to mean?

"The crecendo of Adrians moanig rose to such a level even jeff in SF could hear it"

sp.

You should use spell checker; there's no "i" in "pens."

I think...

The concept of a "word of the day," is for you to give the word and the definition. I mean, if people don't know the word, they probably won't look it up. I'm subscribed to word of the day lists and that is typically the concept.

Jeff

The point of my version of word of the day is to enlighten the ignorant, spur some thought about what some of the words mean! if you don't know what it means... look it up on www.dictionary.com

also its ironic jeff responds with his qwiff the day the word "penis" is is the chosen word... could it be jeff does not know what one is?

If people have to look up the

If people have to look up the definition of a word in a dictionary themselves, it might encourage them to look at more words. On the other hand, if people don't know the definition of a word but think they know how to use it, it could create a situation like in the movie "Teaching Mrs. Tingle" where that girl doesn't know how to use "ironic."

For all of my complaining, I've forgotten to mention that Margaret and I have reconciled. We had a moment that rekindled the forgotten spark. And then we had make-up sex. It was fabulous.
