Fun with Words

Not feeling very bloggy today so this will be short. If you like to read, chances are you like words too. After all, books are made up of thousands of words. So here are two sites that have taken my fancy:

  • Word Spy. Here you can learn about important new words and phrases like "poop fiction" and "geekerati." Today's word is "fiduciary capitalism." The site also offers a vast array of quotations about words.
  • Wold Wide Words. Michael Quinion is a Brit with a passion for words. He researches interesting words and phrases and is as thorough as the OED for which he has written citations. He even has a free newsletter that will be delivered in your email box every week.
That's it for today. I'll try to be more verbose for you tomorrow.
