A recent outbreak of Great Vocabulary has inspired us to create an award. Way back, we all enjoyed getting a gold star for the day. Now, you can have that satisfaction again! Use a great word (or phrase) and you may find yourself in possession of a Gold Vocabulary Star!
Inaugural awards go to Media Beyond for use of 'ennui' in their fabulous new demo video, Chris Rickert's recent 'kerfuffle' in the Wisconsin State Journal, and Jim Hall of DCS Property Inspections for 'flotsam and jetsam.'
Well expressed, each of you!
Feel free to submit nominations of worthy word usage. Point us in the direction of the especially literate or clever by sending an e-mail or commenting on this thread. Tell us the person/entity you'd like to recognize, the word or phrase, and a link to the context so we may enjoy it ourselves. We'll be happy to recognize those using the language with loving creativity!!So, light up the firmament with great vocabulary and the Gold Stars that go along with it!!
