Word For The Day, Day, Date
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. Walking about; itinerant.
2. Of or pertaining to the philosophy taught by Aristotle (who gave his instructions while walking in the Lyceum at Athens), or to his followers. ``The true peripatetic school.'' --Howell.
adj : traveling especially on foot; "peripatetic country preachers"; "a poor wayfaring stranger" [syn: wayfaring] n 1: a person who walks from place to place 2: a follower of Aristotle or an adherent of Aristotelianism [syn: Aristotelian, Aristotelean, Peripatetic]
Etymology: [Middle English peripatetik, from Latin peripatticus, from Greek peripattikos, from peripatein, to walk about, or from peripatos, covered walk (where Aristotle allegedly lectured) : peri-, peri- + patein, to walk; see pent- in Indo-European Roots.]
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....
A++ you may not be, let me put you there right now! excellent shakespearian sounding even!
you are now officially ensconced on the ping list : )
Sublime metering and caustic rhyme!
you get full credit even though i brought that thread into class, bc #1 i forgot to ping you to it and #2, bc your useage was most excellent!
how can he get a triple-plus when someone else you said was "perfect" only got a double-plus?
A petite prick - beauty!
whatever you call that thing where you change the letters around? well he did that, that accounts for the additional plus. the PERFECT ++ was of a different genre so to speak. and you need to get the heck off my back and submit your own dang homework, ya polack.
Oooo, I love it when you talk dirty.
you couldn't possibly survive it... ; )
dang - consider me thoroughly slapped down...
yes indeed, that is what i sez. : )
Well, we'll just see who survives when it's finally my turn on top, that's what we'll see, see?
Thankyou..I thought this group would appreciate "fermented anesthetic."
I always want to change this word to peripathetic or in this year's case, keripathetic. ;)
