Want to know about Mr. vs Mrs. vs Ms.? Hello Nerdy McNerderson!
Why do these articles provide endless fascination? And hours of amusement?
‘By the early 17th century, Mr., Mrs. Ms. and Miss became part of English vernacular, creating an awkward socio-linguistic discrepancy. In an attempt to avoid the use of “mistress,” a variety of phonetic substitutes have been utilized, including “missus” or “missis.”’
I waste almost as many hours on my Merriam Webster Dictionary’s word of the day emails. Favorite word in the past week? Pomaceous (adj. of or relating to apples, resembling a pome.)
How is this word personally going to showcase itself my life? Don’t be surprised if you hear “hot damn that tush is pomaceous” coming out of my mouth in the not so distant future. Sign up for your own word of the day email here.
