feivel – loved “pogonotrophy”. thanksMay 27, 2009 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #923323AnonymousInactive
To ames re your example of the use of “riposte” in a sentence: You used it as a verb, but you defined it as a noun. I do not believe it can be used as a verb, except when used in feivel’s definition.May 27, 2009 6:58 pm at 6:58 pm #923324

“pulchritude” is another favorite of mine. it means beauty, which strikes me as funny, as the word itself isn’t an elegant or pretty-sounding thing.May 27, 2009 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #923330
ames- would make sense if your on a portable device???May 27, 2009 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #923331
the correct spelling is: SupercalifragilisticexpialidochusMay 27, 2009 8:08 pm at 8:08 pm #923332
ames – that is weird… even if you’re using a portable device, why would you have a problem with my posts only? maybe it’s the length of my screen name… anyway i tried to skip a line this time 🙂
thanks for starting this thread – i love words!May 27, 2009 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #923333

illegible handwritingMay 27, 2009 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #923335
Thanx feivel- was wondering who the first person to correct me would be!!!
ames- I’d reccomned Dell- it’s what I use with amazing battery life…
DeliberatelyEsoteric- yeah I think it’s the length of your username.May 27, 2009 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #923336
feivel, I consider your post to be highly pernicious, when you consider the eye strain that it takes to discover that you actually made no correction.May 27, 2009 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #923337
squeak- Huh??? I actually spelt it right…woweeee I’m more talented then I ever imagined!!!
And feivel- check carefully the next time you presume I make a mistake 😉May 27, 2009 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #923338
I didn’t say you spelled it right, only that feivel merely copy/pasted your spelling and perniciously tried to pass it off as a correction.May 27, 2009 8:23 pm at 8:23 pm #923339
Heehee…I always thought that feivel was mature!May 27, 2009 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm #923340

Guacomole (or however you spell it. I always found that to be a funny word lolMay 28, 2009 12:18 am at 12:18 am #923346
ames- yeah that’s an idea because although their battery life is great it does get worse and worse after much usage and seeing what an addicted member you are, it’s probably down to about 5 mins! 😉May 28, 2009 4:26 am at 4:26 am #923347YW Moderator-42Moderator
Delib… I don’t think that skipping a line is helping because you leave those lines blank. Try putting a dot or something on the first two lines like thisMay 28, 2009 6:26 am at 6:26 am #923348JaxMember

Can we take a vote on whether or not Medical terms or scientific names count as words? I vote no. Otherwise, I could coin a name for a clear, colorless liquid which I claim to have added drops of every drug on the planet and call it
