Sharing a special word for today, 21/12. Felicific. "Promoting happiness". Definition of felicific.


  • relating to or promoting increased happiness:
  • the institution of a rule against murder is in general felicific


mid 19th century: from Latin felicificus, from felix, felic-'happy'

Comment by Trevor Taylor on December 11, 2012 at 5:28am

Sharing todays word - 'Acrolet'.

Definition of acrolect: Noun
Linguistics (From Oxford English Dictionary (OED))
  • the most prestigious dialect or variety of a particular language. Contrasted with basilect.





1960s: from Greek akron  'summit' + -lect as in dialect

Comment by Trevor Taylor on December 5, 2012 at 3:26am

Sharing today's word - quintessential:

adjective - representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class: he was the quintessential tough guy—strong, silent, and self-contained


[as  submodifier]: a quintessentially British village like Lacock..

I've read quite a bit of Dickens, but not "Bleak House."  Nice word, Mr. Trevor, sir! ~ Blessings!

Comment by Trevor Taylor on December 2, 2012 at 3:08am

Sharing todays word - "Growlery" - a place to retreat to, alone, when ill-humoured, grumpy or cross.  Dickens bought it into mainstream English in Bleak House. Today finding its way into Blogs, esp  Titles, eg 'The Growlery'

Hi Trevor, I think playdate will make it into the dictionary at some point   I think it's funny how some adults (more like guys) don't like the word, not macho enough, or perhaps not appropriate for 'older'kids.   Thanks for the wiki reference!
