word of the day:

SESQUIPEDALIAN adjective 

(of a word) polysyllabic; long:

  sesquipedalian surnames

– characterised by long words; long-winded:

IT is always good to discover new words in the English language, especially on a day when it’s announced that abbreviations such as TTYL (talk to you later), and words such as ‘unfriend’, have entered the New Oxford American Dictionary. But what made this  in particular my ‘word of the day’ was how perfectly it encompasses it’s own meaning, the many syllables simply rolling off the tongue. And once you master remembering the word itself, by its very nature you will never forget it’s definition.
