Ridgepole is the new word of the day. Some of you will get this and of course some will not. I will tell you this is associated with real estate. This has another name but if I told you what it is now this wouldn’t be so much fun. For you inspectors and contractors if you don’t get this one shame on you, for the rest of us here is the meaning of (rij’pol’) is the horizontal timber or beam at the ridge of a roof, to which the upper ends of the rafters are attached.

Misprision is the new word of the day. If you dissect the word you may get the wrong meaning and unless you know this word I bet you will. Well now care to take a guess? To give you a hint we did this long ago. Still need the meaning OK here goes the meaning of (mis prizh’ en is act of contempt against a government or court. Like a contempt of government in 1776. There is another meaning and I find that one near to us and it is a mistake, now especially one due to misreading, either deliberate (9 comments)
I like being an “operose” what say you? Well I did not know this word existed. And it didn’t take me over a page or two in my Webster’s ® to find it. There are some words I do not post because I really have reservations on how it’s going to be perceived. Kind of like riding the fence and not knowing what side you will get off on. However back to the word of the day, I really work on this all the time and continue to work harder every day I can. The meaning of (ap’ er os’) (9 comments)
If you’re in real estate you practice “jural” don’t you? Had a small problem with the wording of the heading today. Don’t know why maybe because it’s 03:50 AM. I’m up waiting until the store opens so I can get a tire fixed and off to the office so I can write a contract. Well regardless the meaning of (joor’el) of law; legal, relating to natural right and duties. We have certain duties regardless if they relate to natural rights. Anyway I’m going to try and lie back down and get another 30 minute some rest. Have a good day (9 comments)
I want to “ingurgitate” large amounts of an item. That’s right you heard me I want large amounts of this item and I’ll take all I can get. I’ll tell you what the item is shortly and the meaning of the chosen word for today. I don’t know about you but 2012 is off to a booming start for me if it will just keep this up for awhile. The meaning of (in gur’je tat’) is to pour in like a flood, to swallow up greedily or in large amounts; gulp; gorge; guzzle. And the item is money… Did I (12 comments)
Everyone has had a “harbinger” how did you handle it? Funny I thought Word® would have not recognized this word (no pun intended) but it did. Interesting I’ve had many of these in my days and I’m sure I’ll get more. I’ve had them in many different forms but I like the old fashioned way myself. Before I ask you what say you I guess I need to tell you the meaning of (har’bin jer) which is a person or thing that comes before to announce or give an indication of what follows; herald. Interesting play on this word now (6 comments)
I do like “gammon” I do I really do… This is one of my favorites. I know of very few people who don’t like this subject. While it is called by several different names and in the meaning I’ll give them to you. If I haven’t told you I really like this I really do. I like it in several different ways. In fact I had some yesterday but not today but I will tomorrow. Now I guess I’ve held your attention long enough so the meaning of (gam’en) is a smoked or cured ham or side of bacon. Have (7 comments)
Don’t you wish your closings would “antedate”? Man oh man if we could just this to happen. I do wish all the red tape would go away but on the other hand if it does someone would take advantage of this and all the red tape and then some would return like a runaway train filled with dynamite. OK enough of my thoughts if you haven’t already guess it the meaning of (an’ti dat’) to make happen earlier; accelerate. Just think closing within one week after all the documents get signed. <sigh> (12 comments)
Have you ever walked into a “mephitic” home? Don’t know about you but I sure have. Actually I’ve done it enough I don’t want to do it again but I know I will. To do this just brings back bad memories. There was one time I opened the door and never went inside because of this. So I guess by now you want to know the meaning so here goes (me fit’ ik) bad-smelling; poisonous; noxious. Now think and tell me how many times you have encountered this. What say you? (88 comments)
I’ve known some “jackanapes” have you? While I was looking up jackfruit which AR uses sometimes I saw this word. I knew and still know some people like this. Some I look forward to seeing and some not so much. So with that out of the way my question to you is how many do you know and are you looking forward to seeing them again. So without further adieu the meaning of (jak’ e naps’) is a conceited, insolent, presumptuous fellow. Now what say you? (14 comments)
Have you ever felt “inquietude” about a contract? Man you talk about been there done that it fits me to a “T”. This word has two meanings and to be fair I’ll use both. Pick anyone you want to they are both fitting and may apply to your situation. The only question I have is how many times this has occurred to you. Now for the meaning of (in kwi’ e tood’) is restlessness; uneasiness so tell me how many times have you been uneasy or restless about it? Too many to count I’m there with you. Now what say (9 comments)
In your dealings have you came across a “humbug”? Got you thinking of Uncle Scrooge? Don’t go there Pilgrim because you would be headed in the wrong direction or would you? Tell me do I have you confused? I know I am. Anyway I’ve had my share of dealings with these people and I’m sure you have also. So without further adieu the meaning of (hum’bug’) is a spirit of trickery, deception, etc, a person who is not what he claims to be which in the end is what Uncle Scrooge was. He just needed a rude awakening. Enjoy your (9 comments)
Have you ever told a client to get some “getter”? What a great word to start the day. If you have lived around a farm or had dealing with one you might know this word years ago no make that decades ago I lived on one. I’ve heard it called many things but not this one. So I guess now would be a good time to tell you the meaning of (get’er) poisoned bait for farm pests. Hum I wonder if that would also be true for the human kind? ;) Enjoy your day.. ;) (6 comments)
I am a member of the “bimanous’ species I bet you are to. Yep I’m proud to say I’m a member in good standing and thankfully so. While there may be some of you who are not that’s OK to. Isn’t it fun to learn new words and try to use them in a sentence? It’s late and this is going to be a short one for me. So here we go the meaning of (bi ma’nes) is having two hands distinct in form and function from the feet. Now wasn’t that worth the read? Enjoy your day I know (5 comments)
I am “sagacious” are you? I have this problem I’m glad to say. I bet in some sense you do to. The question is what and how many do you possess? I’m going to post five and I think I have all five. Of course that’s my account if you ask some people I know I bet you would get another answer. So anyway let’s get to the task at hand the meaning of (se ga’ shes) is having or showing keen perception or discernment and sound judgment, foresight, etc. having a keen sense of smell. Now how many do (16 comments)
Have you ever dealt with “propinquity” in your business? I haven’t and I don’t know that I want to. It would be awkward to say the least but I’m just glad no one has approached me with this potential problem. If they did as much as I would be cautious I think I would go ahead and do it. So I guess by now you would like to know the meaning of (pro pin’ kwe te, -pin’) is nearness of relationship; kinship. So I haven’t had any relatives ask me to put their home on the market or assist them (10 comments)
Ever had a “ho” moment? Now, now let’s not go there. Besides you ought to know me better than that. This one is one I know you’ll enjoy. It happens to me on a weekly basis and sometimes more than once a day which I find is a pleasure. So today’s question is how many times a day do you experience this? The meaning of (ho) is an exclamation of pleasure, surprise, derision etc. So tell me (us) how many times a day does this happen to you? (10 comments)
Ever had anyone “fribble” with you? I have. Time and time again this has happened to me and one thing is certain I know it will happen again. As human beings we expect only the best from our fellow humans. If you believe that come see me I’ve got something to sell you. Anyway I know this has happened to you the question I have is how many times? So the meaning of (frib’el) is to waste time; trifle a person who wastes time. Any questions? Did I waste enough of your time by you reading this post? Have a (10 comments)
I give an “abrazo” to a lot of people I know do you? Not only do I give one I like receiving them also. It makes me feel warm and when I get one from certain people I feel loved. I think to give this to someone you are meeting for the first time is OK in some instances. So I guess you would like to know the meaning of (a b ra’ tho) is an embrace or hug when greeting a person. So do you like to give or receive an abrazo? What say you?
I’m “darb” are you and if not why not? I will bet that most of you consider yourself this. I’m going to use the slang version of this word for this post. There are some other people who I know well let me change that to everyone I know I believe they are this. Now I guess you would like to know the meaning of (darb) is a person or thing regarded as remarkable or excellent. I think I’m a very remarkable person and I know some excellent people. So now what say you? (8 comments)
