  • I'm afraid you'll have to add proteur, in that case.

  • I've been neglecting wordnik terribly, to my detriment. Anyone know of a shortcut to find the comment field for users on the mobile version?

  • Once upon a time in the long, long ago, someone posted a list of common Wolof phrases and their literal translation in English. Now I can't find it - that'll teach me not to favorite things. Anyone know where it might be?

    It looked like a bathysphere: a ball of riveted metal, two meters in diameter, with a single porthole on one side. It stood on a low plinth, braced by struts. Cables were plugged into it all over its surface. -- The Black Lung Captain by Chris Wooding

  • It's my fault for requesting such tasty umbrage. Poor punderscore has been hiding under a porch somewhere and hasn't had any for so long.

    Oo, I've been craving fufluns! Thanks!

    March 20, 2012

  • I would love some, thanks for asking. Toasted, please, with just a little cheese and garlic.
    You know you're in the right place when umbrage is offered, rather than having to be taken.

    March 14, 2012

  • Thanks! You too, and nice to be back, although right now I'm mostly doing pop-ins.

  • Anyone who uses the word sinister is bigoted toward lefties, I think.

    March 13, 2012

  • Perhaps you should focus your ire on the unritzy states - they seem to be popular today. Or take a chance on the random word generator, which again seems to be functioning well as my personal Tarot card.

    March 13, 2012

  • Ah, good! Wordnik is a wonderful place, or was once and shall be once we all get used to the changes, I hope. I took some time off to let things settle here, but I knew I'd be back.

    I'd looked at The Last Werewolf before (my other addiction is Goodreads) but hadn't really been interested. Your quotes have changed my mind.

    March 13, 2012

  • Your quotes from this book made me interested in checking it out, but I wonder if you mean The Last Werewolf, as that is the only title I can find with a similar name by that author.

    March 12, 2012

  • Your target should depend entirely on your timezone, I believe.

    March 12, 2012

  • Seems like encirch should be a word.

  • I found you, and your lists, dontcry. But I didn't realize profiles were gone except for our wordie tracks - that was a shocking development.

  • I only see 2 pronunciations here now. :(

    Oooh and they don't seem to work.

    March 12, 2012

  • Yep, me too. I've also heard "pocket dialing" in more polite company.

  • Where did all the pronunciations on you're something of a hotdog, aren't you go?

    November 2, 2011

  • In my ESL group of Hmong kindergarteners, we were going around the table and practicing finishing the sentence "I like to eat ____." (What do you like to eat, Pajoua? I like to eat pizza!) and one of them said squirrels. No, he was quite serious. He added, "Yum."

  • Altricial, meaning "requiring nourishment", refers to a pattern of growth and development in organisms which are incapable of moving around on their own soon after hatching or being born. The word is derived from the Latin root alere meaning "to nurse, to rear, or to nourish", and refers to the need for young to be fed and taken care of for a long duration.

  • What was the question? That answer seems surprisingly meta (or the discussion there does). Sounds like a nice prediction for any question, though - unless your question was "What is the one thing I will never have, though I desire it?"

    October 7, 2011

  • Hmm, good point.

    October 6, 2011

  • If those were intellectualists, they were mighty tasty and the FDA may want to investigate. And no, I would rather not patrilocate for Christmas, even temporarily. I suppose what my husband was doing could have been steelyard. He said he was going to the store for cough drops, but you never know.
    Bilby, I see from your song that Wordnik was merely being merry, albeit slightly eccentric. Thanks for the insight.

    October 6, 2011

  • Also, the random word generator is no longer capable of accurately predicting my future or answering my questions. I asked what I would have for lunch tomorrow, and it responded "glacière" and I asked what I wanted for Christmas and it gave me "meretriciously." I then asked what my husband is doing right now, which prompted "responsiveness" -- which is an outright lie.

    October 4, 2011

  • Hm, this might be temporary, but I've found a bug: it used to be, when on a word page that you had traveled to from the community page, hitting the back button took you directly to where you were on the community page. That way you didn't have to scroll back down to find your place. Now, at least temporarily (*crosses fingers*), it hops up to the top of the word page and then back down to the comments, sending you on a merry little lap to end up where you were before you clicked back.

Civil unions, however, grant all legal rights of a married couple without the involvement of any god.

    July 27, 2011

  • Oh, I see. Thank you. I don't think I had seen this user do that before.

    July 27, 2011

  • Each sound has a number representing it so that strings of numbers can represent the sounds of words. I agree, though - tags would be much more manageable. You can't possibly list every word.
    *hears echo* You can't possibly list every word.

    Also, I see a technical difficulty: is it really possible to represent every sound with a two digit number?

    I am adding this word to my bilby adventures list because of the lack of explanation, in hopes that he will return to the scene of the crime.

  • The buttons at the top of the word pages are flaky. I'm sure everybody has noticed this, unless it's a browser issue. I click on "discuss" and it takes me down to comments, but then jumps back up and I have to click it again. Might be because the page has not completely loaded...?

    July 26, 2011

  • I've certainly enjoyed your Wordnik additions! Thanks!

    July 26, 2011

    July 23, 2011

  • Disappointment! No visuals?

  • Kind of strange that no visuals come up for this, since a google image search comes up with plenty, all from that cartoon.

  • But aren't tomatoes and pumpkins technically fruits?

    June 13, 2011

  • Silly hair, though. And what's all this pretending to be tiny trees?

    June 13, 2011

  • How about kale?

    June 13, 2011

  • Thanks, Wordplayer. Doesn't protect it from spam, though, apparently.

  • I think asparagus is very dignified.

  • Oh dear lord, are those what I think they are, madmouth?

    June 11, 2011

  • Different time zones, I guess. I'm always disappointed when I get on after dinner and everyone's gone to bed.
    Very fierce sheep there, sionnach. Good thing I didn't dream of counting barometz last night!

  • Oh, that's right. Rapacious Viking of a fruit. I apologize.

    June 10, 2011

  • I could get used to them if I trained myself to think "et" perhaps. Right now, "ampersand cetera" seems awkward.

  • You're right - abrupt/harsh or slow. That makes sense of a lot of the words listed. Not sure I can agree on cranberries, but maybe there's some etymology I'm missing out on. Care to enlighten us, 'zuzu?

  • Give me more blafferty then!

    December 31, 2013

  • Thanks! Yay!

  • Blaff: Welcome back, from someone who also took time off. (I haven't exactly come blasting back yet....)

    March 14, 2012

  • You are so right! I love the use of of language in the last werewolf and i discovered wordnik at the same time as reading it, hence the double obsession!

    March 12, 2012

  • Just stopping by to check out the accuracy of Wordnik's Random word feature. You didn't have a pickle for dinner by any chance, did you?

    January 24, 2012

  • Thank you for your kind words.

  • *jealous!*

  • Coofor is in New Mexico. I leave it for you to research and find out where. A hint - Coronado stayed there. Also see comments under waldo about a mythical hotel between there (Coofor) and Santa Fe. Also see stay in the lightening fields near quemado and comments on
    bryn mawr.

    Though a native of Arizona, I grew up on a ranch on the rio abajo section of the Rio Grande. Sounds like you spend your time here on or near the rio arriba section.

    It sounds as if your travels may take you to another rift valley - the Rhine. Are you going to Trier?

    July 3, 2011

  • Heading to Europe next week!
    *traveltraveltraveltravel*
    Amsterdam/Brussels/Paris/Zurich - recommendations for a fellow wordienik, anyone?

    July 3, 2011

  • It's back! Someone must have had an attack of conscience and returned it.
    If you ever go to New Mexico, let me give you some recommendations! I used to live there but now only visit.

    July 3, 2011

  • Nooooo, sorry. *sigh* But glad you had a great time. New Mexico is on my dream list of vacation spots. :-)

    July 1, 2011

  • *holds breath*
    Well? Was it there?

    Yes, I had a lovely time, thanks!

    July 1, 2011

  • Hope you had a good time!

    *searches for b's wotd under desk*

  • I was on vacay. Not much wifi in northern New Mexico.
    Also:
    Waaaaaaah! I can't find my Pebbles! Someone find my wotd!

    June 30, 2011

  • Welcome back, blaff! Was wondering where you were hiding. :-)

    Pro, I didn't see the "t" issue until I logged on using my desktop PC (I usually work on a Mac laptop). Don't know whether that makes any difference....

    June 28, 2011

  • Thanks, Pro!
    On the word pages, the lowercase t comes up with a thick little tail that kind of jumps out at you in the new font.

    June 28, 2011

  • Feedback page mostly; new interface occasionally.
    What's this "t"issue everybody's been talking about?

    June 28, 2011

  • Ack, I've been gone for two weeks and come back to find all the word pages looking completely different! Is there a place that people are talking about the new layout? The font is weird; lowercase t is very distracting. Anyone agree?

    June 27, 2011

  • Hmm ... if so, it's not a very lovely shade of green. Actually, it's only a couple shades darker than the walls in my living room.

    May 5, 2011

  • I dunno; that always looked like green paint to me.

    *spins head*

  • Whenever I see the phrase "Thank you ________" I hear it in a mocking, sing-song voice now.
    Thank you marky.

    May 2, 2011

  • Thank you blafferty.

    May 2, 2011

  • Okay, you asked for it: PEEEAAA SOOOUUUP!

    May 2, 2011

  • *adds pea soup*

    May 2, 2011

  • At least there was no pea soup this time.

    May 2, 2011

  • Neat! Thanks for spinning your head!

    May 1, 2011

  • I have no idea! All this thanking is making my head spin.

    May 1, 2011

  • Thank you, blafferty.

    ...What am I thanking you for again?

    May 1, 2011

  • Ooh! Too late. Darn.

    May 1, 2011

  • That means I get to make a wish, right?

  • Oh dear. He got to you, too.

    May 1, 2011

  • And thank you, reesetee.

    May 1, 2011

  • Ah, yes. The wounded trees--how insightful. Thank you, blafferty.

    May 1, 2011

  • I don't think that can prevent marky in his thanking crusade. I'm pretty sure the reason for the thank you bilby was that he couldn't find bilby's profile to thank him there.
    Besides, then how would reesetee help me fix the wounded trees?

    May 1, 2011

  • Just make yourself invisible--all you have to do is add the magic incantation "This account either doesn't exist or isn't public" anywhere on your profile page. It worked for me--I've tricked absolutely everybody!

    May 1, 2011

  • *freezes*
    Don't move ... they can't see you if you don't move.

    May 1, 2011

  • ok, you've made me laugh twice really hard.. you're cool. you're new here though. one more, and you may get a thank you too? haha

    May 1, 2011

  • *whishwhishwhish*
    I think that was the trees saying thank you.

    April 30, 2011

  • *offers bandages to trees*

    April 30, 2011

  • Thanks, ruzuzu! Me too! I was missing out on all the fun. I agree on allochthonous. That was fbharjo's brilliant contribution to my rock-lover query.

    I think the trees could use the bandages more than me, reesetee, but I appreciate the offer.

    April 29, 2011

  • *offers bandages*

    April 29, 2011

  • You're fun. I'm glad you came back.
    P.S. allochthonous is a fabulous word!

    April 29, 2011

    Sooo worth it ...

    Oh, man ... not again. Thanks for the pep talk/squad anyway, reesetee.

    Just what makes that little old blafferty....
