  • Agustin is the Spanish spelling of Augustine.

    The Very Large Array, VLA, radio telescope is located in the San Agustin Plains of New Mexico. It is one of the most isolated regions in the United States and is a dry lake bed surrounded by volcanic mountains.

    Has anyone ever before noted the VLA's purpose is to listen for whispers of radio waves from light years away, even to the edge of the universe and how it relates to the name of the area. It is 'a gust in' ... a whisper. I once read the energy its antennas receive is less than the energy in a falling snowflake. It is like listening for falling dew.

  • That makes sense....however, you also go *against* the flow and there's great profit in that. So many Wordies fit that blessed category and it's what melded us all together in the early days One of the most important benefits, REALLY, for me, was the realization that I hardly matched the aggrandized self-image I had about my own language 'genius' I'd attributed to myself; I've been humbled and I'm grateful for it..

    November 25, 2013

  • fb - you're pretty damn prolific! :o) I'll police these up in due time. Thanks. Some of your suggestions are, for me, more esoteric/obscure to rate inclusion (e.g., 'po') but, just so you know, I'm admiring your erudition.

    November 25, 2013

  • AH!! Broke the code and found the comment box. Thanks,, fjharjo for all your suggestions for my words-within-words list.. I had no doubt that I'd strike a Wordie between the eyes and I added most of your suggestions. Part of my not opening the list up to everybody was my private quest to search out appropriate words during those sleepless hours in the night to give the mind-maw something to do until falling back into slumberland.. Again, thanks, Wordie-amigo! :o)

  • I am a new user and it took me a while to find this box where I can reply to your comment.

    I do upload a lot of words but the quoted number is a mistake. I did upload a huge file with over 25000 terms but as it didn't work out well (the file uploaded but remained uneditable and undeleteable) I had to ask Erin to delete it for me. The deletion did not reflect in the count, though. I have the impression that Wordnik is a great idea but there are too many bugs and inconveniences here still. The coding team is either too small or not competent enough. E.g. Why can't I reply to your comments directly? Why did I have to search for hours for this very commetn box?

My friend lives in Moscow now, but she's visiting for Thanksgiving, etc. At one point the lecturer mentioned Guwisguwi (by his other name). I had one of those moments where I tried to figure out how to explain to my friend how libraries and Russia and Guwisguwi related to this site, but then I decided I'd just wait to write it out here.

  • *waves hello* Thanks for the info--I remember picking up a brochure when I was down there. It looks delightful.

    October 25, 2010

  • I'm a bit ashamed to admit that I know exactly which one it was. You commented on it, actually--it's on my wave list.

    October 21, 2010

  • Very nice--I'm honored I could be part of it.

  • The word was messuage on your list 'There ought to be a law'. To fracture a famous saying by Marshall McLuhan a bit ' The medium is in the messuage." - messuage is a legal term for a dwelling and its adjacent property and buildings

  • Congratulations! Do you remember which word was number 20,000?

  • Revolving... that's cool. I remember that most of the rocks on Sandia Peak had seashells in them.

    September 28, 2010

  • Yes. Crow knows.

  • I came to kairos by way of Madeleine "not Proust's involuntary memory" L'Engle. I think of it when I read (reed) about situation awareness, and I thought of it when I read (red) Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.

    At this moment (since yesterday), a trigger for me is the word sneaked (or snuck). The first story is about sneaking out of my great aunt's house in the suburbs of Detroit early one morning for a sentimental journey downtown, the second story is about sneaking out of my best friend's aunt's house in Rio Rancho for a mapless predawn hike along a creek to catch the sunrise from warm springs near Jemez.

    Greek... sneak... creek... Creek?

  • I came to your profile to find a list appropriate for the word intertex, but I got distracted by "pka Cheparnee" (and Coofor, and Tiguex, and Kuaua).

  • You have a soul mate.

  • Mad for hopping, eh? Glad you're having fun. :-)

    August 12, 2010

  • Whey cool list!

    July 28, 2010

  • Well, golly. It would seem that there's a list in the works with all of these Galena-inspired words.

    July 27, 2010

  • I keep trying to think of steak-raising cowboy puns, but nothing is coming to me....

    July 21, 2010

  • You keep raising the stakes!

    July 10, 2010

  • I love that you set up camp over on my list. Thank you!

    July 10, 2010

  • What delightful "bell" words! I've added the adjectives to my list of adjectival arcana.

    July 8, 2010

  • Hi, 'jo. I haven't forgotten the 'closed STFairies' like 'run dry run'. They do feature on the new Sweet Tooth Fairy website I'm now building. I'm calling them 'Dead End ST Fairies'.

    July 5, 2010

  • Thanks! I was inspired by chained_bear and hernesheir.

  • I often claim that I'm like a crow - it's hard for me to walk anywhere without stopping to investigate shiny objects on the sidewalk (I used to come home with rocks and coins and bits of broken glass in my pockets).

    May 17, 2010

  • I hadn't remembered until I looked her up again. What an interesting family tree you have. It's funny - WWII and the rise of the Iron Curtain actually obscured half of mine (my mother's mother and aunts were as silent about certain things as the giant oak with the sister trunks (sisterly mythstories)).

    May 16, 2010

  • Sorry - I didn't actually mean to delete my comment about peregrine falcons and mosaic thunderbirds and aunties and oak trees....

    I'll replace it with this: I've been to the small town in central Missouri where Winston Churchill gave his "Iron Curtain" speech. It is now the site of a church which was designed by Christopher Wren, gutted during the Blitz, and rebuilt at Westminster College as a memorial. It also has a large section of the Berlin Wall which is part of a memorial designed by Churchill's granddaughter.

  • Hm. That means the writer Joy Harjo has a name which is delightfully redundant.

    May 15, 2010

  • Thanks! By the way, I keep meaning to ask you about Guwisguwi - is it possible that you were born in Turkeytown, Alabama, in 1790?

    May 15, 2010

  • You amuse me.

    May 14, 2010

  • Thanks for the note fbharjo. I didn't sea waterer on the list at first. Yes, I'll keep trying as -erer is one of favorite tack-ons.

    May 1, 2010

  • I enjoy many areas of your wordplay. Please see my profile and see if some of those areas interest you.

  • I've been to Four Corners! I put one of my limbs in each of the four states at the same time and then reassembled myself, ta-daa!

    Thank you for the link. I have a weakness for agate, actually for any striated or patterned stone. But I did not see any specific mention of hinges.

    March 15, 2010

  • Your comment from before "don't forget short closure sweet tooth fairies such as run dry run. there is a separate list of them"

    I haven't forgotten 'jo. My apologies, just overlooked them at the time. I will shortly add a page to w.t-i-s-t-f.c linking to your list.

    Thought I might call them 'clenched teeth fairies'.

  • Thanks for your interest in my World of Corn list!

  • Kudos for your anonymous celebrity in being the source material for the Boston Globe's "The Word" today.
