Word For The Day, Thursday, January 31, 2013 intemerate
dictionaries ad nauseam | 31 January 2013 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 01/31/2013 5:32:22 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".

intemerate \in-TEM-er-it\, adjective
Inviolate; undefiled; unsullied; pure.


Example sentences:
The rain smelled cool and earthy, and with her eyes closed it sounded louder and nearer; it seemed to be in the room, falling small and touchless upon her; it was clear, intemerate as the sky.
-- Fred Chappell, The Inkling

Did you know, sir, that I can trace my intemerate ancestry to Adam through the paternal line, and to Eve through the maternal line?
-- Andrew Drummond, Handbook of Volapük

Etymology:
Intemerate comes from the Latin root emerā which meant "to violate, desecrate." The prefix in- means "not" as in the words indefensible and inexpensive.



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....

This scumbag is the antithesis of intemerate.

They called Tuesday to see if I would be interested in picking up some extra shifts this weekend but then realized I cannot talk, so I cannot work.
A+ for the homework. Another sleazy NJ democrat. It sickens me how they hid the garbage until after the sheep re-elected him.

Since it is impossible to find a candidate with an intemerate past, it is better to choose one whose political principles most closely matches your own.

Hope you feel better soon. My dog was taught “front” at dog training years ago. (Dog training really should be calledowner training.)

The owner hold his arm straight out to the side with a closed fist and brings the fst in quickly and sharply to his chest. while saying “Front!” (Closed fist has a delicious treat in it.) When dog comes, reward with treat. Pretty soon, you just have to go through the motion and not say anything. And gradually ear rugging replaces food as treat.

It works, and you an call in a dog from across the field that way without saying a word.

You’d be surprised at how fast they learn sign language. I had a 15 year old Golden Retriever who was stone deaf, and I didn’t even know it because she responded so well to my body language. My neighbor pointed it out to me that if she wasn’t looking at me, she didn’t hear me. She’s been gone 15 years now, and we still miss her.
