Word For The Day, Monday, 1/30/12

;


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".

redound; verb [used without object]

1. to have a good or bad effect or result, as to the advantage or disadvantage of a person or thing. 2. to result or accrue, as to a person. 3. to come back or reflect upon a person as to honor or disgrace (usually followed by on or upon ).

Etymology: 1382, "to overflow," from O.Fr. redonder "overflow, abound" (12c.), from L. redundare "to overflow" (see redundant). Meaning "to flow or go back" (to a place or person) is from 1382; hence "to rebound" (c.1500), and "to contribute to" (the credit, honor, etc.), c.1500.

example: Thomas Hobbes Leviathan: "So that the effect which redounds to one man, by another man's defect of right, is but so much diminution of impediments to the use of his own right original."

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....

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Will Geo Soros endorsement redound to Romney's benefit or will it be a detriment?

Ciao! If Soros is endorsing Romney, then we know exactly who the Dems want to run against. And it ain’t the redoubtable Newt. Concur, this redounds and smacks Romney in the face.

I just saw my neighbor's hunting dog wearing a Che t-shirt and putting an Obama 2012 sign in front of his doghouse while humming "Look for The Union Label."

Clearly, he's a redound

As economic disgraces redound
Barack’s supporters are claiming “rebound”
But unemployment’s a mess
And most are doing with less
All his solutions are more noise than sound

Me Too.

The “lalalalala” part of what you said.

Let us hope that every evil smear redounds to the one who instigated it.

Newt Gingrich’s moon base proposal, in the face of an America becoming LAST in innovation, redounds to his honor.

The ridicule of Newt’s proposal by the media, especially by Krauthammer, redounds to the media’s utter lack of credibility!!!!

Zounds!

Ole Mitty’s national repubbie “base” is so obviously the Washington establishment.

Since these same “Washington moderates” were defeated both before and after Reagan conservative victories in 1982 and 1988: in 1990 (Bush), 1994 (Dole), 2000 (almost! W. Bush), and 2006 (Pelosi’s victory) and 2008 (McCain), who suspects that Mitty’s handlers don’t believe the media won’t redound-double-down on him once nominated?
