Grinchy’s Terminology Tuesdays! March 23, 2010

Filed under: 1 — sexgrinch @ 10:22 PM

In high school we had this ridiculously hard English teacher who, over the years I grew to love, even if I retained absolutely nothing from her classes.  I had her for English and Speech all four years of high school and she was a big supporter of my writing.

Each day she would write a word on the board.   It was always a word that nobody had ever heard, like ..  This was always my favorite part of the day because I absolutely crave learning new words.  I often say that the thesaurus is my favorite book, even though I haven’t touched mine recently.   Throughout my years in high school I learned so many new, colorful and wonderful words and my writing really blossomed in that time. 

So I’ve decided to bring this back into my life and see if it helps kickstart my writing again!  It’s really more for me than it is for my faithful Whovillagers.  But I would love to see if you can implement the “Terminolgy Tuesday” word into your next blog and how.  I love reading blogs so if you decide to participate make sure to comment and link me!

If “Terminology Tuesday” takes off I’d love to start offering prizes!!!

Today’s word:  

exiguous   ig-ZIG-yoo-us\ , adjective;

1. Extremely scanty; meager.

Tiny Tim’s family lived an exiguous lifestyle.

Don’t forget to link back to your blog if you decide to take part!  I will always post my blog containing Tuesday’s word on Wednesday!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

    Love the name, hehe!

  2. I couldn’t use it in today’s post, but neat idea.

  3. My husband and I give each other silly looks when the other comes up with a new term that the other has not heard use of. So I wonder what he will do when I use this one.
