A short post today. For a while I've been subscribing to the Word of the Day from Merriam-Webster (free) and I like it because it also includes a little background on the history of the word. I don't check it every day (yeah, I know that should be the plan), but once a week or so it makes a nice break to read through them to catch up. If you'd like to be a little edgier, try the Urban Dictionary Word of the Day. I was tempted to post a few of my favorites, but decided to err on the cautious side!
Seriously, I'm not in favor of using four syllable words when two syllables will do, but there are times when using the correct word makes a difference. It's also interesting that every now and then a word doesn't mean quite what I thought it did - easy to happen when you arrived at your definition by the context it was used in at some point.
Think there's a market for a SQL Word of the Day?
