I love words.  So much that i get 4 word for the day columns sent to my email.  OK, Urban Dictionary isn't really about learning new words, but as i see it as keeping tabs on new usage and mindset.  I have often written about words and writing, and here i am starting a blog - which i swore never to do.  Oh please, not texting next.....
Since i am still sorting out how to work this site, have patience.

I came here this morning to share a word, in the hopes it would be a deterrent to becoming one: poetaster

It comes from
This week's theme
There is a word for it

This week's words

By the way i also suffer from anomia.

Please join me in the love of words, by subscribing.  At the very least, you will learn these words if you do not already know them or subscribe already, by clicking on the word link.  The thought for the day, at the end of the column not only has excellent advice/quotes, but very often has pleasing ways of putting words together, and ideas worth sharing. Thank you Anu Garg for so many years of education and entertainment.  A job with you would be heaven indeed!


  1. Looks like a fun premise... already learned new words! Thanks!

  2. poetaster... that word comes in very handy for you-know-who!
