Word For The Day, Monday, 6/24/13
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".
1. a lofty oration or writing in praise of a person or thing; eulogy. 2. formal or elaborate praise
Etymology: 1603, "eulogy, laudation," from Fr. panégyrique (1512), from L. panegyricus "public eulogy," originally an adj., from Gk. panegyrikos (logos) "(a speech) given in a public assembly," from panegyris "public assembly in honor of a god," from pan- "all" (q.v.) + agyris
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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Most who had bestowed panegryrics on Rubio have since retracted them.
Review Thread One: Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02: Raffish (Be SURE to check out posts #92 and #111 on this thread!)
Review Thread Two: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/14/03: Roister
Review Thread Three: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/28/03: Obdurate
No pushing at the door please!
What’s up, my dear?
panegyric - what passes for mainstream news about Obama...
Obama’s frequent panegyrics are all about himself because he truly believes that he “is the one wee’ve been waiting for”.
Chris Matthews had a famed panegyric
But his praise only gave me an earache
Obama made his leg tingle
And Chrissy ain’t even single
A true socialist can turn a lib queer-ic
and prone to gimble in the wabe.
The whole thread with comments
back from Williamsburg, where we had a very nice weekend. Heading to Houston to visit my bro and his family, with xsbaby, this weekend. Lots of work to get done in between : )
or were you asking if i’d added whats up to the ping list? ; )
true, and disgusting. A+++
Say, the WFTD “pun potential” has been pretty thin of late... just sayin’.
It is very often disappointing to see movies based on fave books, though i have not read that one. A+++
i will keep that in mind, next monday, when it’s my turn again ; )
he does indeed. A+++
He’s still aboard the obams bus isn’t he? he wobbled a few times with one or two of the scandals, but not enough to disembark! A++++
I had not read the book. I agree it was an enjoyable movie. I say that even though I like my zombies slow and plodding, not like these fast ones. I mean if you are dead, you think you’d go slower.
