I have been a subscriber to Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day functionality for a number of years. I receive an e-mail every day containing a new word, the pronunciation of the word, the definition of the word and the origin of the word. Additionally, M-W provides the usage of the word in an sentence.
What better way to learn our language?
I have always wanted to play the game of using all M-W words received in the previous week in the creation of a paragraph/short story. Every one I have mentioned this game to has always looked at me like I was crazy.
My challenge to you, my readers, is to subscribe to M-W's Word of the Day and use these words appropriately in your daily conversation!
