39 replies 233 views Edited Sep 29, 2012

Hey guys, I thought it might be interesting if I made a thread dedicated to new words that you may or may not of heard of before. My goal in this is to share with yawl some new vocabulary words which I am also learning myself and use them in sentences, and in talking (etc.) I will try to update this thread daily, with some new vocab words. I hope that me and you can learn something new with this(Expacaily with ones that struggle with English or Grammer, like me sometimes Smiley Sad).

Must we have fidelity to the word fof the day presented, or should we be bringing up our own words?

 

Fidelity, by the way, comes from the latin Fidelis.  Commonly associated with the Marine Corp motto Semper Fidelis, meaning Always Vigil, or Always Faithful, but popularly shortened to Semper Fi.

 

The origin of the motto, Semper Fidelis, stems from the Irish Trbes of Galaway, specifically to the Lynche Family in the 13th through 16th centuries.  Actually of English and French Decent, the Lynches, were believed to be descended from the Norman King William Le Petit. 

 

But I digress.

 

Digression:  a section of a composition or speech that is an intentional change of subject.  The place of digression is not fixed, so it can come before or after argumentatio.

If raised properly, bears can be docile animals, until they maul your **bleep** to death.

In the game AMY, the character Amy is neither a super warrior, nor a docile character that follows along.

Can I get a cookie for writing a sentance?  Smiley Happy *I WANNA COOKIE!*

 

This is a great thread MJB! Very useful when you're on the forum writing all the time. So now people can come to your thread, learn a word, and link it back to the word of the day so others know the meaning! 

 

 

Aloha!
