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....
As I was commenting, what kind of idiots would even choose to listen to this crap, they showed him mouthing the words. Shut my mouth! Singing? LOL!
I was also wondering why he wasn’t singing about his fruit pies? Back in time ROR!
“Iff at firrst you do not succeed, you vill redo und redo und redo vunce again!”
Marquette is in Michigan. We are in Wisconsin. We do have Marquette University here in Milwaukee, but none of our several Bishops have a Diocese named Marquette. And our captal is in Madison. All those “M” words make it confusing for those who don’t live here. LOL.
And Pere Marquette did discover this part of the country.
News about the petitons and how many errors are being found:
my liberal diocese did NOT read it, nor was it in the bulletin.
Yes. My husband and I did 200 at the Victory Center, and I did about another 100-150 on line at home. (2 different efforts)
The online effort is shut down for a couple of days until they release the gubenatorial petitons for examination. We finished a Senatorial recall petition in 2 days. At least 3 sets of eyes examined each signature.
There is an amazing number of people working on this challenge.
This diocese does not have any spirit since Dolan left. But, now he’s a Cardinal, so our loss is a good cause for NYC.
i was assuming bc of Marquette university that it was in WI, sorry.
Oh yeah, I got to watch the entire speech. Amazing speaker, never once looked down at notes, and there was NO teleprompter....cspan pulled the camera out to show the whole stage.
The Sieves refer to Tyler as TEEN WOLF, it was hilarious to see him singing along!
We will be going to Mass up there next weekend, at SU. i am steeling myself for it.
never saw it before.
They have their new bishop, so it should be better. Let me know.
We used to sing it all the time when we were little.
I SWOONED FIRST!
LOL No apologies needed. You are just one of millions of people to get confused. Add to that Monominee Falls near Milwaukee and the Menominee Indian Reservation up north that’s just called Menominee. I have a friend from Washington State who still thinks that I moved to Minneapolis and she’s been here to visit!
Remember what the Prince said to Mozart in Amadeus? “Too many notes”. We have too many Ms in the Midwest.
He def makes my heart beat fast.
