Word For The Day, Monday, 11/28/11
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. having a pleasant odor; fragrant. 2. odorous or smelling (usually followed by of ): redolent of garlic. 3. suggestive; reminiscent (usually followed by of ): verse redolent of Shakespeare.
Etymology: 13501400; Middle English < Latin redolent- (stem of redolēns ), present participle of redolēre to emit odor, equivalent to red- red- + ol ( ēre ) to smell (akin to odor) + -ent- -ent
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....
I do not think that word means what you think it means.
A+++ i’m skeered.
Zaccotti Park is redolent of OWS, and will be, long after this charade is over.
A+++ bright sunshiny news all around. Caps fired their coach. not remotely sure it was the right thing to do. It gives OV way too much power, bc he was apparently not happy with Bruce. PLUS, they hire a former Cap THUG with record breaking penalty minutes, as the new coach. AND he’s never coached above Juniors.
Knew it was coming from yesterday, but news broke on Twitter about a half hour, 45 min ago.
Then again, so does this
i literally LOLed when i clicked on that. gotta laugh or i’d be home on suicide watch in the bunker ; )
ROUS! As you wish...
I love my princess cake....the 1 is for Hobbes. ;^)
Haha - perfect cake to share with Hobbes! Thank you
We met our daughters future in laws and they were just wondeful people. We had them over for our saturday thanksgiving feast, then back for brunch Sunday morning. We had a great time. I'm so happy for my daughter to have in laws who love her so much.
Obama plays golf, he’s just indolent
His politics? Marxism, redolent
With the accent on “red”
Try free markets instead
It’s a shame that the public is somnolent
that sounds wonderful!
To broadly paraphrase, the Caps are not “redolent of team spirit”...
(When you lose 5-1 to BUFFALO w/ 9 AHL’ers in the lineup, you know you’re in trouble ;)
If we don’t get lent right, do we have to redolent?
ok Kurt Cobain ; ) A+++
good one! A+++
Twitter says this [bruce’s firing] was not a Ted Leonsis [owner} decision, rather a GMGM decision [GM George McPhee]
