Word For The Day, Monday, 6/29/09



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".

adamantine; adj.

1. utterly unyielding or firm in attitude or opinion. Unyielding; inflexible: "If there is one dominant trait that emerges from this account, it is adamantine willpower" (Eugene Linden). 2. too hard to cut, break, or pierce. 3. like a diamond in luster.

Etymology:1200–1250; ME < L adamantinus < Gk adamántinos. See adamant, -ine 1

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....
