Basicly, as writers we'll all appreciate the language we speak, and will want to expand that.
The idea here is for people to post their word of the day, the more obscure the better. If this takes off i'll try to keep said word in a table in this post. Also any discussion over the words, their meaning or use can be had here.
To post, use the following format:
[th]<INSERT YOUR WORD HERE>[/th]
[td]<INSERT THE DEFINITION HERE>[/td]
[td]<GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF IT's USE HERE>[/td]
Click "QUOTE" on the post prior to yours (assuming the previous post added a word), and simply copy everything between the two
I hope that's clear - the idea is to keep the topic self sustaining. That way no one runs the topic, except for ourselves.
If you see a cool word, add it in here - I'm not putting a limit to how many words anyone's allowed to post, so go nuts! The more obscure the better!
I'll start with:
|Myriad||of a vast quantity, a great number. Many. The Myriadstars in the night sky.|
|Intransigent||Unwilling or refusing to change one's views or to agree about something.|
