Word For The Day, Day, Date
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 group of people who associate closely. 2. an exclusive group; clique. 3. a group of prairie dogs occupying a communal burrow.
Etymology: 173040; < French, Middle French: an association of tenant farmers < Medieval Latin coter ( ius ) cotter2 + -ie -y3
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.
Within their coterie of communist cronies, this administration has a significant number of muslims.
No pushing at the door please!
headachy and out of sorts, so your grades may suffer... ; )
The Obama coterie is about to find out what it means to be held accountable.
Please God let this be true. A+++
when you see them all splayed out like that, it really does take your breath away. A+++
It’s a beautiful day today, isn’t it? A bit chilly, at 37 degrees, but a lovely day nonetheless.
Nice to see, 8 games into the postseason, that the Penguins decided to start acting like they care.
And for those not inclined to watch hockey, tonight Jack Bauer returns!
There were uncharacteristically harsh words for Crosby and the Penguins in the pregame, on that score. Speaking of scoring, did 87 score? i watched the first 2 periods but then went up to bed.
No goals, no. Not that he had no impact, mind you. Still not doing so hot on faceoffs.
The game was tense until about 3 minutes left, when the Pens scored the insurance goal. Then the empty netter makes it 3-0.
The “dudes” in Barack’s little coterie
Spin in circles like some devilish rotary
But they’re all getting hosed
As Benghazi’s exposed
Come November, count votes with a notary
afraid to hope, but hope nevertheless. A++++
could not even bear to read tweets about it, it is an abomination. A+++
need a better link
I hope that is close enough. Oh, coterie. Nevermind.
the third definition of coterie: a group of prairie dogs occupying a communal burrow, reminds me of the fawning adulation of the Whitehut press corpse (intentional misspelling because journalism is dead.)
