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.
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....

Yeah, like Mer-lo and Mer-lot.
argo like the peas. like jason and the argonauts. like the greek myth stuff.
How is Romney responsible for a man getting laid off two years after he left Bain? I still can’t get over that falsehood making it into an O commercial. So much for his camarilla having a functioning brain or two.
Check my source, the American pronunciation is “ar get”. The Brits say “ar go”. Interesting.
Cruz says the "American firm" had already moved all production to China, thus no american jobs were lost because of this action and then goes on about the claim.
So I'm going with Cruz because the Tea Party backs him and Sarah Palin just recently announced her support for him.
As a side note, that asswipe craig james is also running for the Senate and has less than 1/2% of the vote. lol What a douche.
Interesting that there are two ways to pronounce argot.
ar-go and ar-got
Argot ergo sum.
If you go to my source at the top of the page....it’s “go” or “get”...no “got”. I thought that was weird.
Isn’t that the language Obama should speak to re-start the economy? I mean, now, everything he says is “No development, No drilling, No fracking, No nukes, No energy at all.” To all but new taxes.
Even meanings are a tad squishy, like this ar-go. It could be what the pirate ship carries, a load of ‘argo in it's ‘old.
Anyhow it sounds French since they speak a foreign language and not too good either. They'll tell you “Est ‘argo” and then bring out some snails all greased up in butter so they slide down easy and, and they give you a little pick to get the shells out of your teeth!
Could be, my site only has the American and English versions of the word.
How do things look on the ground there? DNC is pulling out of the effort to unseat Walker. Sounds like good news.
my niece is going to be living in Green Bay this summer for an engineering co-op that she is doing with Proctor and Gamble. my SIL is worried about her car being damaged bc she has some republican sticker on it, and she will be living on the U of Wi-Green Bay campus, in their housing.
She should remove the sticker. Better safe than sorry.
A+++ Womb to Tomb...I like that. It fits.
Things are looking good here. However, I live in one of the most conservative counties in the state, so it is hard to tell. I haven’t seen a ReCall Walker sign, or bumper sticker, in ages. Stand with Walker is everywhere. In other parts of the state, not so much.
I don’t know what to say about UWGB. That is always an iffy thing on any campus. Green Bay is in Brown County which is generally conservative, but campuses are where the radicals hang out. They probably speak their own argot there too! LOL.
Probably removing the sticker is the safest thing to do, until she assesses the lay of the land. I like magnetic “stickers” which I remove if I have to park in the wrong part of town, i.e. Milwaukee.
