More wordy knickers
Posted by episode81 on July 6, 2009
I have posted before about my love of some words. I heard a new word for the first time on the news this evening – braggadocios. What a great word! I have seen braggadocio written before (in the font list!), but never spoken, and certainly not the plural braggadocios. Love it! The news item itself was incredibly unpleasant, but I am pleased to have been introduced to such a fabulous roly-poly word.
It is odd the first time you hear a word that you have only seen written before. Sometimes, it has taken me a while to match the two together. I had lived in the USA for a couple of years before I realized that Arkansas and Ah-Kansas were the same thing. Yes, really. If Bill Clinton had come from Idaho, I would still be in the dark.
Anywho, I digress …
Another word I am liking. Baboon (as pronounced by Rowan Atkinson). That is a good word to noodle on. Braggadocios baboon. Awesome!
