What a wonderful idea you have!
-Actually, the way I see it, trying to learn, and then incorporating a new "word of the day" into ones everyday vocabulary usage is one way to keep the brain "fine-tuned".
-It also should evoke a similar: I want-to-learn some of these "words of the day" emotion from those that are fortunate to be within 'learning-distance'.
-Such perspicacity upon your part!!
-I, too, appreciate those that can, as you say: "occasionally drop a word". But, although I cannot claim to be one, the findings of an etymologist, upon my new-word-discoveries, are of utmost interest to me, also.
-In my lifetime, there have been a few individuals whose knowledge and grasp of the English language has stood out as unique to me, as well as others.
-They were considered to be the demi-gods of sesquipedalianists.: William F. Buckley, Jr. William Safire Spiro T. Agnew
-But, as always, they had their detractors. Quote from an antogonist of Buckley's:
"A predilection by the self-serving intelligentsia to engage in the manifestation of prolix exposition through a loquacious disposition form of communication notwithstanding the availability of more comprehensible diminutive alternatives".
-But...I say to you...Do not allow the above description to deter you from your stated goal of attaining a new "word of the day"! It is a merit-worthy-goal...IMHO.
-Pay no attention to the:
"nattering nabobs of negativity" ~ Agnew/Safire
-With that being said, there are two items left to be discussed.
I've never seen/heard this word being used outside of a Court of Law [Judges rulings, Lawyer-speak, etc....Don't ask me how I know]. Interesting to see you use it in your original post!
2.) New "word-of-the-day" (hopefully it's "Detailer" oriented): Pedalfar.
"While harvesting the leaves of the Copernicia cerifera
palm, surely the cost savings of procuring pedalfar
, during the same harvesting sessions, has been duly calculated". Pedalfar.
Please forgive my ramblings, if you deem necessary....Just a few random thoughts I had on a Sunday afternoon.
