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....

Inquiring minds want to know: Is mundify related to the word “mundane?”

It promises to require a Herculean effort to mundify the Ship of State following the depradations of the Obama Regime.

Michelle Obama seeks to mundify our children's diets of yummy stuff. She reminds many of the Grinch who stole Christmas. Wonder why?

No, mundane is from the root "mund", meaning of this world. Welcome to WFTD!

While fedgov tries to mundify the risk out of life, I'd rather they just backed off and left me alone.

Obama and Holder for fun, defy
Serious efforts to mundify
Voter rolls of the dead
And double voters. Instead
They reject all attempts to identify

Now that ODrama has declared war in Iraq over, and that the us is out (leaving 17,000 for other duties?), the extremists will wait a day and begin to mundify the land. ODrama will blame that on Bush too.

Awaking now my thoughts run high
Too sick to work to the boss I’ll lie
Long weekend, to work I say Bye, Bye
and Hello to sunny shore under cloudless sky
But all joy reality does mudify
No rum to drink, no tanned maidens for my eye,
Because when they say “Boss”, I am that guy.
Ahhhh...The smell of sunscreen makes me cry.

We enjoyed the debut of 24/7 Flyers Rangers last night. Laviolette and torts trying to give Bruce a run for his $ on the F bomb front. But the star is def going to be goalie Bryz! He’s hilarious!

Many around here have been pointing out that Romney’s canard about not being a career politician, is only because he lost to Ted Kennedy in 1996, for months, before Gingrich actually had the wherewithal to say it.

My Prediction, next up....

‘The Republican establishment media would have you believe that the best available candidate, is the guy that lost to the guy that lost to Obama’

I’d be willing to risk a Goldwater style defeat if we had an actual Goldwater type candidate. If there is one in this field, Newt isn’t it. Maybe Perry or Bachmann or even Paul.
