Word For The Day, Day, Date
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
ex·co·ri·ate; tr verb
1. To tear or wear off the skin of; abrade. See Synonyms at chafe. 2. To censure strongly; denounce: an editorial that excoriated the administration for its inaction.
v 1: express strong disapproval of; "We condemn the racism in South Africa"; "These ideas were reprobated" [syn: condemn, reprobate, decry, objurgate] 2: tear or wear off the skin or make sore by abrading; "This leash chafes the dog's neck" [syn: chafe]
[Middle English excoriaten, from Latin excorire, excorit- : ex-, ex- + corium, skin; see sker-1 in Indo-European Roots.]
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Nothing like reading something about the Hildebeast excoriating our President, to get one's blood boiling on a Monday AM

yes, as a matter of fact, class IS opening early today : )
In like Flynn.
Sadly, many on the left refuse to excoriate the perpetrators of 7/7.
I've been excoriating myself all weekend for screwing up the entire summer................
hey marteen, i was at Kennywood on Sat. It was so much fun : )
A++ you have to wonder WHAT, if anything, it would take to get them to excoriate the terrorist for their acts.
i skimmed some of yesterday's thread this AM, gabz, i am so sorry about your ankle. what a dang drag. you have to stop beating yourself up for it, though, there must have been a reason that God wanted you laid up this summer and not off doing everything you had planned.
75% of them would change their tune if it was their immediate family. The remainder are too brain-dead -- if you were to excoriate their Leftist "beliefs" you would see a vacuum.
i should have bought you the tshirt that had an arrow pointing downward and said that very thing... ; )
hi grimmy, didja miss me?
I am not so sure about that :) It's a shame I wasn't drunk, since God always looks out for little children and drunks :)
Alright - I'll bite.....what the heck is Kennywood?
It's changed from what I remember.
'Course, that was a loooong time ago.
That's hilarious.........and I can actually hearing her saying just that to the fat slob. Very Good.
