Exercise #331: Your Thoughts
Posted 8/28/09

Today’s exercise was suggested by Carlisle. He said, “I'm a long-time subscriber to A Word a Day (Anu Garg) and Merriam Webster's Word of the Day. Often the two daily words are related, but mostly they are not. I thought an interesting exercise might be to use the 10 daily words from these lists for the week preceding in a story.

So here you are; from last week’s words, delivered every day by A.W.A.D and Merriam-Webster Online:

 * Monday - diastrophism and trichologist
 * Tuesday - micropsia and canicular
 * Wednesday - supplicatory and inordinate
 * Thursday - adiaphorism and contemn
 * Friday - simpatico and spear-carrier

If you want a simple (no special formatting but long) document which has the words as presented by A.W.A.D. and Merriam-Webster Online, email me privately.
