Save the Words

I'm going to go out on a limb, here, and guess that most folks visiting this blog, whether readers or writers, enjoy using words. I was sent this link to Save the Words a while back and loved it. Visit and adopt one of these poor, underused gems. Give a good home to a deserving piece of our language. Plus, the site is amusing. We all need more smiles.

Great link, Michelle! Thanks. I am adopting the word pigritude, which means laziness. Here's my sentence....
My pigritude this summer is embarrassing.

What an awesome site! I love it, and have adopted a word: inobligatory. I had no idea it WAS a word. But now it's mine, all mine! Not that Word recognizes it...sigh.

Penny Watson said...

Okay, Isabel...no fair! You can't just introduce a word and not give its definition (especially since it's not coming up on a Google search)....spill! What does inobligatory mean?

Michelle said...

Good job, Isabel and Penny, on doing your parts. I decided to adopt two words since I am so blessed in my life and I feel I can give a good home to many word tykes. I adopted VICAMBULATE, which means to walk about in the streets, and SENTICOUS, which means prickly or thorny. How about a sentence using both -- Michelle's mood was so senticous, she needed to vicambulate to work off the attitude.

Michelle- You da Master, baby! Senticous is good....good alliteration going on there! I am going to attempt to use that one in my WIP, Diabolical. Thanks for the new word!
