Word of The Day
Hello out there netizens. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a huge believer in the formality of language. There is a proper word for EVERYTHING. With such resources at our disposal I find it both sad and disheartening that so many words are woefully underused. In an effort to help make conversations both more accurate and entertaining I thought I would share some of these gems with you. Today’s choice –
Idle, redundant, serving no useful purpose, sterile, fruitless. From the classical Latin ōtiōsus = ineffectual or superfluous
Example – Most people who comment on mainstream news sites are otiose.
So merry readers go forth and use this beautiful word. Show it off, spread the knowledge. The looks you get from people make it well worth the effort.
