Word of the Day Online is the unofficial vocabulary source for businessmen and women who want to succeed in today's marketplace. Our truest hope at Word of the Day Online is that the efficacy of our service will be evident throughout corporate America and maybe even beyond.
Each definition includes the source used. For many, the source will be the The American Heritage® Dictionary, Second College Addition affectionately re-titled "The Big Book With The Words In It" by my college roommate who was drunk on vodka (you know who you are and your parents do too.) In order to spare our Alma Mater (the top public university in the State of New York) from embarrassment, I won't reveal where this occurred because it is a good school even though it is saturated with down-state liberals.
Each word has been assigned a classification type so that our readers can determine which words they should or should not add to their own personal vocabulary depending upon their personality type, station in life or literacy level. Classifications are determined by Word of the Day Online.
Sample Effective Usage
Each definition will include a sample sentence so that our readers will best understand how to use the word. Where possible, actual sentences that have been verbalized aloud or transcribed in email or traditional paper letter format in a business setting are used. In order to spare from embarrassment the parties whose actual sample usage sentences are used here, our policy is to withhold their identities until such time that we feel it is appropriate to reveal them.
A shout goes out to me Irish da with a sharp tongue straight from the 'ol sod. Give him a pint of the plain and he's full of blarney. Without him I would likely still not know how to correctly use the term "excrementitious" which, by the way, Microsoft does not even recognize in their dictionary. Cheers.
