Word For The Day, Thursday, June 7, 2012 - enjoin
dictionaries ad nauseam | 7 June 2012 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 06/07/2012 4:30:29 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".

enjoin (en-JOIN) verb tr.
1. To order or prescribe a course of action.
2. To forbid or restrain.

Example sentences:
"Ajanlekoko enjoined the members of the Building Collapse Prevention Guild (BCPG) to continue the struggle."
---Okwy Iroegbu-Chikezie; Group Advises Govt on Building Failures; The Nation (Lagos, Nigeria); May 22, 2012.

"It asks a court to declare the ordinance invalid and enjoin the city from enforcing it."
---Bruce Vielmetti; Hispanic Group Sues Over Milwaukee Contracting Rule; The Journal Sentinel (Milwaukee, Wisconsin); May 1, 2012.

Etymology:
A contranym or word with contrary meanings. Sometimes the meanings are as diverse as black and white (cleave: to split, to stick), but often they are in shades of gray. From Old French enjoindre, from Latin injungere (to join), from in- (towards) + jungere (to join). Ultimately from the Indo-European root yeug- (to join), which is also the ancestor of junction, yoke, yoga, adjust, juxtapose, junta, syzygy, jugular, and rejoinder. Earliest documented use: around 1225.

The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

However much the Union Gangsters attempted to enjoin the People to oust Gov. Walker, Common Sense prevailed.

Though his spending, we’ve tried to injoin
In Barack’s realm there is no more coin
Our kids are in debt
There is no safety net
But in November, he’ll get kicked in the groin

xshub is enjoining me to vote for Jamie Radtke a teaparty candidate for US Senate in VA. I sent this to the kids, trying to educate them on who is running, in next Tuesday's republican primary.

Enjoin is related to syzygy?

I did not know that any words were related to syzygy.

I harbor great hope that the Supreme Court will enjoin the enforcement of that misbegotten mandate known as The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, aka "Obamacare").



Nos genuflectitur ad non princeps sed Princeps Pacem!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Enjoin

Now i know that one of definitions of enjoin is forbid and I suppose there’s some truth in that as most of the things I’ve been enjoin over the years are generally forbid to the common folk.

Can I give an example? Why of course. I’m sitting in my fav o rite movie theater (there’s only one in town) enjoin a small libation of Ripple and the second cartoon when some kid that looks like Howdy Doody made up as the Joker tells me it’s forbidden, enjoined, which I was up til then.

So as I stand up as the lights come on. I push my enjoined Ripple bottle into his hands and shout that I don’t want a date or a drink and leave but not before telling the “management” they might should check on the kid with the wine bottle. He seems confused.
Enjoining is enjoined.

I enjoin you to use the word “kraken”.

In this article, “Wallker, Unbowed” http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2892534/posts the National Review said, “Walker’s enemies did everything but release the kraken.”

Look it up. I’ve never heard of this word (myth) before, but it looks like kraken will be a useful and exciting addition to my vocabulary, and I enjoin everyone to use it.

One of my pictures keeps switching back and forth, but the other is holding firm. Look up kraken. Everyone should have kraken in their vocabulary. And, the National Review is right. The leftists and unionistas did unleash everything except the kraken.

One of the commenters on the Walker, Unbowed thread said that kraken can only be found on sea coasts. But, they forget that Wisconsin has three “coasts” — Lake Michigan on the east, Lake Superior on the north, and the Mighty Mississippi on the west. However, I suspect that most of our kraken hang out in Dane County (Madison) in Lake Mendota. They lurk there just waiting to pounce on Republicans to make them faint heated and to turn their votes around.

Death to the kraken.

    “Michelle outdoes me in pushups as well,” he said, after saying that she’s taken some criticism on her technique “because she doesn’t go all the way down” – a line that he let hang, naughtily, provoking laughter from the crowd.

Michelle should enjoin her husband from making such crass remarks.

Eric Holder seems to be hoping
For someome to be on his side
And enjoin him from explaining
What he’s attempting to hide

He’s using a convienient memory
At this hearing, as he is grilled
As if he were blissfully unaware
Of anyone having been killed

He’s acting just like Nixon’s men
Going Haldeman and Mitchell’s way-
But it didn’t work for those two
And it won’t here, now, today

I don’t think I’ve seen anyone but Clinton try to play artful dodger like that-does anmyone really think that he has a memory that short for events like that?
