OED Online Word of the Day

Filed under: — brendan @ 10:46 IST

When I was in college, I took a cool course about the etymology of words. It touched a great interest I had, and has resulted in me having all sorts of books about word history, the origin of words and phrases, you name it.

You can sign up to receive a daily Word of the Day from the Oxford English Dictionary. (Check out The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester to learn about the history of the dictionary; I got it as a great birthday present and really enjoyed it.) Each morning (relative to your timezone) you’ll get a new word with its complete OED entry, including pronunciation, etymology, definition, and the variety of specific texts that used the word over the last 500+ years. They’re amazing, ranging from swelling to the more recent addition of D’oh.

Certain people may not get medical insurance and thus forced to pay for the expensive prescription pills or research how to buy generic medications online. Generic drugs are as safe as other branded counterparts. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Adjanta. With this in head one can buy zyrtec uk in generic online drugstore including free shipping anywhere in the world
