Word For The Day, Thursday, December 15, 2011 - mundify
dictionaries ad nauseam | 15 December 2011 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 12/15/2011 4:42:31 AM PST 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".

mundify \MUHN-duh-fahy\, verb
To purge or purify.

Example sentences:
The cleric, fatigued and mumpish, scolded her, saying that a woman of her burdensome years should return home and mundify her morphewed sins.
-- Edward Dahlberg, The Olive of Minerva: Or, The Comedy of a Cuckold

Vigorous efforts to mundify old nasty habits should find priority as a substruction on which the edifice of the efforts of humanising the police should be built.
-- Praveen Kumar, Indian Police

Etymology:
Mundify is built from two Latin roots, mundi-, "to clean," and ficare, "to do."

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 look forward to the weekend for MondiFridation of all the grief encountered during the work week...

Many northerners adopt all of their travels and vacations to a MonthlyFloridication over the frosty winter months.

A for you Robert. What do you think of our new football coach? I don’t think they did a good job of notifying Sherman but he had to be suspicious with a 25-25 history and a horrible bowl record to boot.

Our Pecksniffian President watches too much TV. How can he be the leader of the free world and have more time for nighttime tv than I do? In reality, a four year term is ephemeral. More so are the number of days he actually works between vacations. In November of 2012, this country gets to mundify the peculator in chief. Perhaps we can keep MO from raiding the treasury for her lavish vacations for another four years; it would go a long way to paying down the deficit. Here she is now......

Another rainy day! We need the rain badly, but it is a tough trade for a lean-to-the-bone Christmas...

To mundify the Peoples’ house
After the Obamas have moved out
Will be like the Aegean stables
Of that there is no doubt

Hillary took place settings
And that was pretty crude-
But Michelle Antoinette
Just might steal fancy food

The computers will be trashed
All wiped of e-mails and such
To hide which Chicago mobsters
Had been staying in close touch
