Stringer is the new word of the day. Take a look at the spelling. Were you thinking about a fish stringer? If so you would be right but you know me by now that would be too easy. I know how about a second-stringer as a person ranked according to their ability? Well you would be right there also. However the one meaning for (strin’er) is a horizontal timber connecting upright posts to a frame. So was that one of your guesses? What say you? (11 comments)

Defenestration is the new word of the day. Well I’ll be d- -n Word® actually recognizes this word. This is what I love to write about.

Perdure is the new word of the day. This is a very interesting word and Word® doe s not recognize it.

Before you answer look carefully at the spelling it’s not spelled wrong so care to take another guess? The meaning of (per door’) is to continue, endure; to remain in existence. We as Realtors ® are all winners as we continue to endure or in this case perdure. (9 comments)
Neep is the new word of the day. First of all I do not like this at all. I’ve tried this more than once and I still don’t like it. Some of you may and no doubt some of you enjoy this but not me. Just the thought of it send negative thoughts through my mind. But who am I but just one opinion.

Entablature is the new word of the day. This one some of you will know some won’t. Strangely this is associated with a home and this is the first time I can remember hearing this.

Beadle is the new word of the day. You will be (as the saying goes) amazed to find the meaning of this one. Look close to the word and how it’s spelled. It has nothing to do with a home in one sense but in another you do not want to meet this person. So I’ll give you two different meaning and I’ll let you guess which one you wouldn’t want to meet. The first meaning of (bed’l) is a messenger of a law court, the second a minor parish officer in the Church of England, who kept order I (7 comments)
Amain is the new word of the day. Well this is a new one on me but most words I write about is new to me. Anyway I wonder if this is a new one for you. This is Archaic in origin wherever that is. My wife accuses me of doing this all the time. I think I only do this about 80% of the time which doesn’t give me a lot of time for anything else. The meaning of (e man’) is at or with great speed, tastily; suddenly. She (wife) tells me I’m going at full speed or (10 comments)
Privatism is the new word of the day. You bet ya I know of people who have this problem. Once you read the meaning I’ll bet you know of some people who also are afflicted with this issue. The spelling of the word should give you a hint as to its meaning. Haven’t guessed it yet OK the meaning of (pri’ve tiz’em) is concern only with one’s private life and personal involvements rather than with public affairs, social values, etc. So what say you? (7 comments)
Oubliette is the new word of the day. I’ve seen homes that remind me of this. The origin of the word is from France and the break down looks like (oo’ble et’) but can you guess its meaning? This would make a great place to store wine for those of you who drink adult beverages. If you haven’t guessed it by now you won’t so the meaning of the word is a concealed dungeon having a trap door in the ceiling as its only opening. Although I wouldn’t suggest you call a basement a dungeon I know of a few (7 comments)
Otosclerosis is the new word of the day. Here we go again :~) you just got to love the English language. Word does not recognize this word and I can’t blame it.

The meaning of (ot’o skli ro’sis) is a growth of spongy bone in the inner ear, causing progressive deafness. Does it not seem that some clients and agents only hear what they wanted (8 comments)
Jenesaisquoi is the new word of the day. The word of the day is pronounced (zhen sa kwa’) which is a mouthful. We are faced with this sometimes although those of us who have a vivid imagination can deal with this issue. There is however agents and clients that cannot so have you guess the meaning? My guess would be you haven’t so the meaning is something elusive, or hard to describe or express. Haven’t you had those listings that you search for words on how best to describe them? Just think of the new word to add to your (7 comments)
Kermis is the new word of the day. Origin of this word is Dutch. We call this something completely different in the U.S. It comes to us on a yearly basis and some of us enjoy it and some of us don’t. So which one are you? Sorry I guess you would like to know the meaning of (kur’mis) is in the Netherlands, Belgium, etc, an outdoor fair or carnival. So now I ask you again which one are you? Enjoy the day (7 comments)
Incrassate is the new word of the day. All I can say is tasty. What a wonderful way to start the day with this or at least the meaning I’m going to give it. Are you a cook? Do you like to make tasty stuff I know I do? So without further adieu the meaning of (in kras’at) is to make or become thick or thicker in consistency. Of course my thoughts turn to gravy ladled over some hot biscuits with maybe a side of hash browns, ham, bacon or sausage… Hummmm tasty (11 comments)

Soigné is the new word of the day. Well I find it hard to believe Word® recognized this word. Do you like my play on word? Anyway there are agents who are like this.

OK the meaning of (swa nya’) is well cared for or attended neat; tidy; well-groomed. What say you? (9 comments)
Remora is the new word of the day. I usually don’t do this but in this instance I think it’s appropriate. Yesterday I posted a word that also started with the letter “R”. In this case I thought it complimented the other word so here we go. I’ve known these types of people sad to say. So you may ask what the meaning of (rem’er e) is it is anything that hinders or impedes. So what do you think? (9 comments)
Remonstrance is the new word of the day. Interesting word this one is. Although we do it almost on a daily basis do we really realize what we are doing? I think we do we just call it by another name. So what is the meaning of this word well it is pronounced (ri man’strens) the meaning is a document setting forth certain points or listing complaints. Think about it don’t we do this on most documents? Enjoy the day (7 comments)
Virago is the new word of the day. Well there boys and girls I’ve seen this before. Not something I long to see again but I know I will. You men know exactly what I mean and I know you’ve seen this also. That’s right ladies I’m talking about your gender not all of you fit into this category but even you have seen this. So not wanting to keep you waiting the meaning of (vi ra’ go) is a quarrelsome, shrewish female. Some men are like that to but so far I haven’t been able to find that word (9 comments)
Tatterdemalion is the new word of the day. OK you word sleuths let’s see if you can get this one. When I was a cop in Bentonville AR. I saw this person from time to time with this. Come on give it a try before you look at the meaning of the word. The person was of course Sam Walton the man of Wal-Mart. Unless you knew him you would have never guessed it.

If so you have already guessed the meaning of (me gil’e) is a long or involved explanation, story. Ask a (16 comments)
Enchiridion is the new word of the day. I know I’ve written about this before but used another word I found. Apparently like so many words depending on where you look there are several different meanings. I remember just the other day I found a word and wrote about it. Apparently some ambitious person looked into another source and found a totally different meaning. SO THEREFORE I will repeat it again I find 99.99% of my words in Webster’s®. If there is another meaning and you find it good for you. <phew> Now the meaning of (en’ki rid’e en) is (10 comments)
Encephalon is the new word of the day. Some say I have this problem, some say they wished I did. I’ve known people without this and people who thought they had one. Have you figured out what it is? OK I won’t keep it from you much longer. The word is Greek in origin and the meaning of (en sef’e lan’) is the brain. So have you known or know of a person who does apparently not have one of these? What say you? (9 comments)
Hyperbole is the new word of the day. You people know me don’t you? Some of you do other just think they know. When you hear the meaning of this word you’ll know what I think about myself. Don’t ask the wife because she will assure you I’m not this word. I guess that’s why they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So here we go the meaning of (hi pur’be le) is exaggeration for effect and not meant to be taken literally. So I think of myself as one of the largest jokesters and I also (10 comments)
Tersely is the new word of the day. OK you people we have arrived. I would like to think of me in this sense but you’ll be the judge of that.
