Posted on 03/31/2011 4:45:44 AM PDT by secret garden
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".
usufruct (YOO-zuh-fruhkt, -suh-) noun
The right to use and enjoy another's property without destroying it. .
"It is currently in the process of purchasing perpetual usufruct rights to a number of plots."
--Budlex Prepares for Large Residential Project; Warsaw Business Journal (Poland); Jan 17, 2011.
From Latin ususfructus, from usus et fructus (use and enjoyment). Earliest documented use: 1646.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Lately, I have been unable to find my usufruct...
Isn’t that what Hu Jintao says to America?
That’s no way to treat a good hygienist. A for you.
But is anyone on the Hill even listening? A+ for you, F- for the incompetents running the show.
Welcome to WFTD!
No, Hu’s on first. A for you.
No. No they are not.
They are either:
Hopelessly out of touch.
or they know we are already past the point of no return
i don’t think we need to prompt little girls to associate pleasure with that activity when they are little! I’m sure it’s common for siblings of breastfed babies to emulate mom with their dolls. we don’t need specialized dolls to latch on and make sucking sounds!
I don’t think it will sell well here. Of course, I always thought Betsy Wetsy was pretty crass. I think imagination is better than graphic demos built into toys.
After Obama got elected our president, we Americans were all completely usufruct.
Except he uses and enjoys our money while doing real damage to our country every day.
Usufruct - What the politicians say to us daily once elected. That is the correct definition. (couldn’t help it)
In that case, maybe you could say we Americans are usufruct up the b*tt.
For boys who like boys who like hockey
Is that like a Sid/MarcAndre kind of thing ?
Hi Dixie! A for you.
That picture of the two of them with the medal is a little too chummy.
What skeeves me (and no doubt Sasha) is that the authors who are swooning over him are FAIRIES!!
Hence the posted pic of similar looks.
