    Heard "donnybrook" today.

    That's a word I hadn't heard in a very long time.

    Kerfuffle and fracas are also great words.

    If there ever was a man who could give a feck about beer, it's you.

    (Meriam-Webster says that I can say that).

    And although that is of Scottish origin, it reminds me that there is a US Congressman trying to normalize an Irish word -- eejit. As in, "I think Boris Johnson is an eejit."

    Edit to add -- the Congressman is Brandan Boyle from PA.

    I somehow got subscribed to a word-of-the-day email blast. Today's word was abecedarian.

    It was defined as "of, or relating to the Alphabet", "Arranged in alphabetical order", or "Basic, rudimentary".

    I was initially skeptical that this is a real word (the daily email I get is pretty "spam-like"), but according to Meriam-Webster online, abecedarian has been in use since at least the 17th century.


    Now, I just have to decide if abecedarian is a word I really like, or a word I dislike.

    I love words and believe in using vocabulary to enhance clarity. That said, I cannot, within my life circle, think of a time when abecedarian would have fit the conversation. But then, I don't speak Dewy Decimal.
