Word For The Day, Thursday, November 3, 2011 - metemperical
dictionaries ad nauseam | 3 November 2011 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 11/03/2011 4:37:37 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".

metempirical \met-em-PIR-i-kuhl\, adjective
1. Beyond or outside the field of experience.
2. Of or pertaining to metempirics.

Example sentences:
...but the quality of her innate wit had deepened, strange “metempirical” (as Van called them) undercurrents seemed to double internally, and thus enrich, the simplest expression of her simplest thoughts.
-- Vladimir Nabokov, Ada, or Ardor, a Family Chronicle

Still however, instead of aspiring to becoming rigorous and metempirical, poetry lives by the heart, the sense and singing.
-- Kahlil Gibran with Andrew Dib Sherfan, The Third Treasury of Kahlil Gibran

Etymology:
Metempircal derives from the Greek words met- meaning “beyond or before” and empirical meaning “experience.”

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....

The ick factor is just too too high.

A+ for you. I don't have time to read the article, but the keywords say plenty.

Those who subscribe to the religious dogma of CAGW need to consider their metatemperacurlall behaviors that have collapsed so many economies - beginning with the US economy in 2007.

I believe this has already been adjudicated in one of the states. Basically, the seed is a gift from the man and the woman, who worked so hard to obtain it, is entitled to it.

Although Foreign Policy may seem metempirical to Herman Cain, “Peace Through Strength and Clarity” makes sense to me.

Morning! Gotta run off for the day, will be back tonight to do homework. Probably won’t be posting from my phone as it drained the battery. I will have to invest in a new, updated phone.

The horrible part was that some of the women were lying about being on birth conteol, then hitting the guys for child support.

Of course guys can take a little control themselves and use a condom - especially since the author tried to justify her behavior by saying men should know a 40ish woman would be plotting against him. Way to trash all women in one article lady!

This does not surprise me at all. Women get crazy when they want a baby.

Read the article. Before you eat. This “lady” was helping herself to condom-contents in an attempt to conceive.

I did read the article, I was referring to men in general regarding the condom comment. Yeah this woman was a sicko - some kid really dodged a bullet on not having this neurotic mommy

Yeah, you’d think in this era of cooties, you’d want to, ahem, sheathe yourself against any extras from the encounter, birth control notwithstanding.

Exhibit B: Justin Bieber Baby Daddy story:
