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".
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:12001250; 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....

It’s poetry in motion.

A+++ both will get their just desserts eventually.
i knew our sciencey geeks would love that song and be very familiar with it!
oh LE, it’s horrible isn’t it? i was with a group of women friends on Friday and everyone was feeling the same way. it’s hard to know what to do about it.
Being an adamantine is a complication of puberty.
Or maybe I slept too much in my developmental psychology class.

And Dolby, of course, played the keyboards on Foreigner 4 as well.
