dictionaries ad nauseam | 25 July 2013 | Thursday's sub

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".

apercu \ˌa-pər-ˈsü\ noun
1. a brief survey or sketch : outline
2. an immediate impression; especially : insight
3. a hasty glance, a glimpse

Example sentence:
I could not figure out how to make the cedilla accent mark for apercu. Extra credit for anyone who can teach me how to do it.

Etymology:
French, from aperçu, past participle of apercevoir to perceive, from Old French aperceivre, from a- (from Latinad-) + perceivre to perceive — more at perceive First Known Use: 1828

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....

Huma reached for a pair of scissors after an aperçu told her that her husband was sexting again.

Google the word, find it on the internet with the accent mark, copy and paste. Easy peasy.

I was scanning the thread, after a brief aperçu....you made me GAG. I HAD to go back through the thread to read it again as I flew right over it the first time, then said...wait a minute.....oh, boy. Too funny, but gaggingly funny.

Today is LAKE day. Keuka Lake here I come. Some wine tasting with a view of the lake, then we will settle in at the cottage and relax with family. I hope I remember to get up early tomorrow morning to open the classroom, we’ll be late getting home tonight.

Had another rough day in the ‘hood yesterday. One of our drivers, our former mayor, keeled over with a heart attack. Spent the evening with his daughter at the ER taking care of things. Nice man, he will be missed here in the village. Death seems to be stalking us. Took care of my other neighbor’s husband’s feeding tube as she was at another ER with her daughter. Busy times here, glad to be getting away.

....our bear seems to have moved on from the 'hood. Thankfully I walk the streets at night unafraid again.

Even an apercu of Carlos Danger's online activity is too much for me.

Barry’s speech was no short aperçu
He droned on about what he could do
If those fools in the House
Would grow meek as a mouse
And their duties they’d gladly eschew

they haven’t called asking for $ recently {RNC} because i blasted them, and xshub took their latest fundraising letter and vented his spleen, writing out by hand on the back of it all that they have caved on, and sent it back in their prepaid envelope.
