Posted on 02/15/2012 6:06:55 AM PST by tioga
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.
[French minatoire, from Late Latin mintrius, from Latin mintus, past participle of minr, to threaten; see minacious.]
Hump Day is here, rise and shine!
of course, this could be exactly where the word originated...
Alternate definition: A British loyalist from St. Paul
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....
Review Thread One: Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02: Raffish (Be SURE to check out posts #92 and #111 on this thread!)
What a hoot! A++
As Iran gets ever more minatory
Would Obama choose to win a gory
War for salvation
Against this rogue nation
Or just b.s. and spin a story
A+++ It’s about time the Christians banned together for our country.
Thank you, Virtual high fives
Is that before or after he bows low to them? I don’t believe he would get the chance to stand back up.
As Tim Geithner lied before congress, one senator accused him of giving mendacious answers. Geithner frowned darkly and replied, “Would you prefer minacious answers? Because that’s what’s coming next.”
Obama’s minacious attack on the Catholic and Evangelical churches has backfired, although silver tongued, Cardinal designate Dolan still insists the dialogue is conciliatory. (read NOT!)
Huh....I would prefer the truth, can’t we just give them truth serum when they testify?
A....no pluses.....you used another word, though they mean the same. Minacious is much more common a word than minatory.
Dolan is a useful tool for his democrat Catholic shills...Biden is another.
A.....same reasoning for your grade as your classmate...were you copying? LOL
Boy, Mr B got an A++ for posting a picture of a Minotaur! I got a mere A for using minacious instead of minatory!
Definitely foreign so most rules don’t apply, minatory is one those real short Brit politicians of the Tory party (and from what I hear they can par—tee!)
Also when used in the byocidial field minatory can mean birds that fly south in the winter. Migratory birds get arrested and sent back home.
ROTFLMAO..........what an idiot.
‘’malevolent’’, a similar word with similar meaning.
Sure it’s similar.......but we are here to learn new words to extend our vocabulary. Welcome to the WFTD classroom.
It’s as minatory as a TSA employee grabbing your junk. A+++
I happen to have an excellent vocabulary, thank you. Here’s a word you won’t find in Websters; ‘’misandgry’’ It is hatred of men by women..
Thought it was a mythical creature.
Please excuse. I typed a response before reading the thread.
If it is not in a dictionary, we can’t use it here as a WFTD. Look, I was trying to be welcoming, not insulting. We always enjoy new faces here.
no problem.....I was amused.
Soother's out the country so we know this wasnt the scene in the Soother HAAShold las night, but i'm betting at HobbesHQ something similar was going dahn ; )
My DH took me out to dinner on Monday night, had to change all his plans to do it. I was on call last night. Then he came home last night with a card and candy. I am amazed.
i just want to go on the record and say that sex is not just for valentines day, and i feel sorry for the poor saps that wait for that day for that purpose ; ) i didn’t see xshub yesterday because he has biz people in town for a meeting today that he had to entertain last night. he asked me to go but i had no desire to be sociable with that group. we went to dinner on Sunday PM and he gave me a gift cert for a facial along with a very cute card. even xsgirls think val day is stupid. though xsjr was on CLOUD nine with her visit from slapshot, and xsteen got a very nice and meaningful valentine from someone also.
It isn’t a word you can find very easily because it’s a word liberal academia doesn’t like many to know. It doesn’t fit into the whole feminist ‘’women as victim/male as ‘’oppressors’’ ‘’misogynist’’ thing. Sorry, didn’t mean to be so...flinty. I thought your response as a bit patronizing but that was my mistake. Mea culpa.
Back in high school, DH and I started going together exclusively on that date, so it has a sort of anniversary theme to it for us.
i can’t even conceive of going back that far with someone, to HIGH SCHOOL! dang! the girls and i talk about what a nerd their father was in HS and how had i met him then i’d prob not wanted any part of him. God brought us together at the right time, obviously. and that was 30 years ago give or take. our 28th wedding anniversary will be this june.
well, technically, I was a high school senior and he was in college.
You’ll find it just fine if you spell it right.
Thank you. Spelling was never my strong point but then if one can’t read spelling becomes moot, right? Thanks again “Dave’’.
cradle robbing, GASP! ; )
You're just tempting the tiger. ;-)
This time tomorrow I’ll be boarding a plane for home.
He’s so overwhelmed with his valentines night festivities that he’s not showing to class today.
It is 68 and the fog is beginning to lift-the contractor I work with is trapped indoors, miserable with allergies because everything early spring is beginning to bloom, so one estimate was all the work I had today.
I’m making a conscious effort to spend a great deal of time each day hiking in the woods among the blooming vegetation so that I don’t have adverse reactions to it-I’ve been doing it for years and it works for me.
All the minatory growling
From Obama and his bunch
Failed to stop the Bishops
From delivering a big punch
Then he tried to placate them
By playing a transparent game
It only made everyone angrier
And Obama seen more to blame
No one is about to shut up now-
He can forget his Marxist goals
It looks like he may end up out
Because of a battle over souls
Spring is a long way off for me. A+++ And, November is looming large for O.
from the boxed pink zin that he was using to liquor up the missus ; )
