Description

Word lovers, readers, crossword puzzle fanatics, lawyers, writers-for everyone who's mad about words, 365 new words-a-year is the sine qua non of calendars. Created by the authorities at Merriam-Webster, America's most respected dictionary, the calendar features old-fashioned words and neologisms, high-brow words and those of more demotic origins. There's the bizarre-lycanthropy. The often misused: tortuous. And the historical-riot act. Each entry comprises a definition, pronunciation guide, sample sentence, and word history. Neologisms - a new word, usage or expression Demotic - common, popular Lycanthropy - the assumption of a wolf's form and characteristics Tortuous - marked by repeated twists or turns; crooked, tricky Riot act - a vigorous reprimand or warning
