Re: Word of Today

Very nice words, thanks, good people..

Anyways, I have posted some words that get mispronounced since I think they will so make it in our normal use, give it a few years. How about taking somebody for granit or this political candit..Makes me chuckle, but when you think about natural tendencies in pronunciation, those are not incorrect, we either reduce or insert. Legit, yo. I just saw some dufree shops lately (and, they were called dufree), so fab. People's ability to adjust the environment, including words and language, is amazing.

Today's Word will certainly be jetlag.

Re: Word of Today

the word on my mind is

Accoutrements - Means "get up" in French. In English means - accompaniments or accessories.
