  • Sorry about that, c_b. I have created my own 2 lists about mythical literary works and mythical music/composers with an Americam theme. Please feel free to add.

  • And don't forget the following by Aaron Copland, a Jewish kid who became an American myth by epitomizingWASP Americana in terms of his musical oeuvre:

    Billy the Kid
    Rodeo
    Fanfare For The Common Man
    Appalachian Spring
    Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson
    Our Town
    Quiet City
    and much more.

    No list of American mythology is complete without this man and his story.

  • nice comments re "gaytarded." When we hold a word up to the light, it can lose its frightful character or perhaps provoke new, meaningful insights. A word is just a grouping of letters and has no power beyond what we assign to it. This is one of the underpinnings of semantics. I am with you.

  • I can just see all those dressed-up Saturday afternoon ladies jockeying for parking spaces, close to the store entrance, at those Chevy Chase shopping districts. God forbid they should have to walk a few feet! **slipping on my mall walking tennis shoes**

  • A great cape, for us, can't be expressed in longitude or latitude alone. A great cape has a soul, with very soft, very violent shadows and colours. A soul as smooth as a child's, as hard as a criminals's. And that is why we go.

    From the book, The Long Way, by Bernard Moitessier.

  • Exactly how quiet? :-)

  • Traders who bet against a stock. One borrows a stock one does not own, sells it, then buys it back at a lower price, pocketing the difference. A naked short seller is someone who just sells the stock. It was thought this year that there were naked short sellers causing the stocks of banks & brokerages to decline via short selling, so a rule was promulgated to deter the practice of naked shorting.

  • I always think it is a good idea to set forth the standards expected of everyone when he or she enters this site. Let it be known that the tone is high and civil. People do need to adjust because the web is still in Wild, Wild West mode. Some sites foment; others are dead; still others are quite stiff and formal. Ideas by their nature are in flux and can be powerful. Words are like that, too. What should be stressed here is that not only what you say but how you say it counts for a lot. **as I have learned**

  • Michelle Obama for President! **sorry...just had to throw that in..I was so impressed with her speech last night**

    August 26, 2008

  • We need a list for well-known places no one has visited but wished he or she could, just to see what's going on there in order to appease his or her curiosity. Like Timbuktu. I would love to go there. It is a remote place (though not to the people from that area) and a place of ancient learning.

    August 26, 2008

  • In 1453 the Ottoman Empire took over.

    August 26, 2008

  • A lovely place in the southern Appalachians, over the border from South Carolina, with a music college that provides wonderful concerts year-round. Brevard is a regional draw. There is a gift shop downtown called the White Squirrel, a reference to the aforementioned squirrels. It is a gateway to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville NC, and camping/hiking opportunities.

  • Thank God for tree-huggers. What I find interesting is that as we move towards becoming a paperless society, with more and more business being done and stored online, fewer trees will be hacked down. President Teddy Roosevelt and the Republicans were our first big environmentalists; too bad the Republicans are so anti-environment these days. Makes one wonder what "conservative" means if one is not for "conserving" trees.

    August 22, 2008

  • I love it, too. It seems that it would have seeped into other usages or contexts by now.*sighing* I mean, don't you think the fall landscape in the mountains is full of coloratura? And I guess a naughty joke would be considered off-coloratura if it were particularly graphic (or colorful). I want to start a committee whose purpose is to get more mileage out of coloratura. Why limit it to singing/music?

    Mr. Logos

    August 22, 2008

  • This is a great number ! It's in honor of everyone who has fibbed about his or her age. Among people over 45, this is probably the most prevalent age in America. :-)

    August 22, 2008

  • Thank you, Milo.

    August 22, 2008

  • Thank you, bilby.

    August 22, 2008

  • You guys win ! I am leaving the site. I may log on to increase my vocabulary. You folks are way too touchy and thin-skinned. I thought I had a 1st Amendment right to say what I believed but if you guys believe in rose-colored thinking and censoring, be my guest. I have never felt compelled to go along with something I thought was silly and ridiculous. After all we are strangers here. I am never offended by what a stranger thinks.

  • My new name will be, perhaps, "not_42."

    August 21, 2008

  • And I will read and write what I please. And you do not have to read what I write, either, my friend. Your love affair with 42 is one of the stupider items on this site, thank you.

    August 21, 2008

  • I tried to grow a sea holly in my garden here in SC but it died. I think it requires the sandy soil of the littorals. But it is a neat plant.

    Down with 42 !!

    August 21, 2008

  • 42 also refers to an incredibly stupid and overrated word (number? who knows--I am blinded, at this stage, by the brilliance of the contributors to this list who go on and on ad nauseam) on Wordie that is being perpetuated by folks who really do have better words, ideas, and thoughts to add. I could scream, from boredom, at "42." Better idea--I shall get Edvard Munch to do a visual depiction of myself screaming at 42.

    August 21, 2008

  • so is South America. Yet when a person takes Western Lit, I doubt there is much from South America in his book or in the pedagogy. The America Columbus discovered seems to be, in the minds most people here in the US, to be that land mass in North America.

    August 21, 2008

  • In South Carolina, this is a title given to a District Attorney or an Assistant DA.

    August 21, 2008

  • We say, "Western Literature," not, "Occidental Literature." Why?

    August 21, 2008

  • Thank you, mollusque.

    August 21, 2008

  • What about the Light Dragoons in the War of the Revolution in American history? Is a dragoon a group of troops? One could see coercion in that, or force, for sure.

    August 21, 2008

  • Milo, you are a scholar indeed! I appreciate your energy.

    August 21, 2008

  • That Wordie, as a whole, is greater than the sum of its parts. There is a serendipitous synergy on this site that one can feel and revel in.

    August 21, 2008

  • opposite of orient. I love this word. It comes from the Latin meaning to kill or to slay. In pre-Columbian thought, people believed a ship would drop off the edge of the world if it went beyond the horizon. One might really die or be slain if one fell off the edge of the earth! So going west will result in an occidental event. If I am wrong about this word, please correct me. Any other ideas?

  • Vexed, irritated, disturbed. The plant, nettle, contains histamines. One would likely be annoyed if one brushed up against such a species. Genus Urtica. Urticaria is the name for hives.

  • I do not know how to do it, c_b

    August 21, 2008

  • I am asking my newly found friends on Wordie to help me find a new name. Any constructive ideas will be most welcome. Unkind suggestions will be dismissed as offal and served to Polynesian demonesses on a tiki platter.

    August 20, 2008

  • c-b, does this word chafe your ass?

    August 20, 2008

  • Does it also not have a flavor of being rare or strange or momentous ?

    August 20, 2008

  • Cha-cha-cha !

    August 20, 2008

  • c-b, are you a Charmin' bear? one- or two-ply? :-)

    August 20, 2008

  • Please use this word correctly! This is the male plural form. Alumnus is singular masculine, alumna feminine singular. Plural endings: alumni, masculine or mixed male and female, and alumnae, for female graduates. -us is masculine; -a is feminine; -i is masculine or mixed gender plural.

    August 20, 2008

  • Instead of allowing teachers to carry guns in that Texas school, we should let this demoness loose to work her charms on the little rugrats or troublemakers who do not care a fig about education.

    August 20, 2008

  • Tank, you naughty boy!

    August 20, 2008

  • To me, an archerent is someone who acts mightily bad, possibly wickedly. In a grand way. The Vatican might have viewed Henry VIII as an "archerent" in light of his insistence upon a divorce from Catherine of Aragon, and the subsequent fall of the Church of Rome in England.

    August 20, 2008

  • Miss Clarissa Harlowe's reputation was besmirched by having it bruited about that she had an illegitimate child last June, allegedly fathered by that buckra down at the mill.

    August 20, 2008

  • like Wordie?

    August 20, 2008

  • With the word, ire, in it, I would think it might mean conducive towards war or strife.

    August 20, 2008

  • from South Carolina, yes. I am going fishing next month down there, assuming no hurricanes, which can be a big assumption this time of year, but yes, the fishing is great, the seafood cooking even better. You should try shrimp & grits, an old Charleston recipe. In Charleston, recipes are referred to as "receipts." In fact the most famous (IMHO) cookbook in the world was published by the Junior League of Charleston in 1950. Called "Charleston Receipts," it is a delightful compilation of Lowbountry, South Carolina, treats for palate and tummy. It has lovely art work from masters now deceased and the style of the book is delightfully ancient and old-school. Whether you are a gourmet or a gourmand, you will be pleased. Reading the local patois spelled out in the book is a treat, too. I might add that the nice thing about Charlestonians is that their taste is not just in their mouths.

    August 19, 2008

  • Yes, the word, perlucid, were there one, would never work. Thank God for ancestors who used prefixes and suffixes mellifluously.

  • sounds like the name of a third-tier local English band.

    August 19, 2008

  • ...but I would like permission to tout Charleston, South Carolina, the most beautiful city in America, where the Confederacy started. Charleston is the emotional capital of South Carolina.

    August 19, 2008

  • On the East Coast we have the Intracoastal Waterway. It runs from Maine to Florida, I believe. Running along Charleston, SC, the most beautiful American city extant, it is a great place to troll and fish, and to crab and go oystering. People use it to avoid the rough seas of the Atlantic.

    August 19, 2008

  • That gal had a great pair of littorals. I could lick her littorals...literally...with my lingua.

    P.S. This word has a most respectable Latin origin.

    Now imagine vacationing at Myrtle Littoral. Or West Palm Littoral...licking all those littorals. Sand on the lingua .....yuck@@##!

  • Can you be dim-witted without being heavy? Look at those celebrities on TV. Skinny and stupid.

    August 16, 2008

  • I think deprecate means to affirmatively put someone or something down. It is not a bagatelle. I think one deprecates when one stands up in a crowd to denounce something or when one is in a public forum, such as a newspaper. It is an ongoing repudiation. To depreciate is to devalue or go down. A stock can depreciate in value.

  • Bear should go the lair and enjoy the friends hanging out there. There is a crest to protect, don't forget.

    August 16, 2008

  • Do the bears of McCutcheon
    have an escutcheon?
    Sadly, no, said Brown Bear,
    who slinked into his lair
    to devise a great crest for himself.

    A salmon in the left corner,
    A paw in the right,
    Fur and teeth spread all over,
    To reveal ominous might.

    Posted on the door
    For all to see,
    The crest of Brown Bear
    will make a burglar flee.

    But little do they know
    that inside his dens
    A sweet bear holds court
    With all his winter friends.

    Turkeys and ducks and sweet
    little toads
    Write poetry, and dance,
    while snows coat the roads.

    'Tis a fine place, this House of Bear.
    Crest or no crest, it's great to be there.

  • a Cape Horn voice would be continentalstentorian.

  • or does it relate to Greek tragedy? A good, noble man falls from a high state to a low state due to a tragic flaw. He gains self-knowledge and the audience is left with a feeling of tragic waste. We develop pity for him.

    August 16, 2008

  • The Morning Star is another name for Mary, the Mother of Jesus Christ, I believe. It was invoked in litanies in procession, especially on May Day.

    August 16, 2008

  • I recall this as an SAT-prep word

    August 16, 2008

  • The mace is a state symbol of South Carolina, carried in procession by the Lietenant Governor or his duly appointed minion.

  • Milo, this is good stuff !

    August 16, 2008

  • Is "craic" legal ?

    August 16, 2008

  • "Sic" is the Latin word for "thus." I think "thus" is pretentious. Now, if you will excuse me, I am going to have High Tea with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    August 16, 2008

  • How does this relate to anagnorisis ? The Temple of the Oracle at Delphi had two things written on it: Know Thyself and In All Matters Use Moderation, right?

    I personally wish I could have met the Oracle of Delphi. I would have taken him to the mall, bought him a new cape and cap, and taken him out to lunch at Applebee's, all the while picking his brain for wise thoughts and juicy tidbits of wisdow. I would have asked, for example, what he saw in Britney Spears's future. Oh, and because he was blind, I would have gone by the optometrist's office at the mall and purchased a long overdue eye exam, and perhaps obtained a referral for ophthalmic surgery at a nice place like Duke University nearby so he would not have a long trip.

    August 16, 2008

  • I prefer the term, viz., which is a Latin abbreviation for videlicet, as in, clearly, thusly, to wit, etc.

    August 16, 2008

  • A myrtle is a nice plant. I like crepe myrtles. Their bark is lovely in winter. And then there is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I grew up with myrtles, and I knew women named Myrtle. To me, Myrtle is a solid old-fashioned name, and I am surprised we have not seen a resurgence in its popularity

    August 16, 2008

  • Stentor: a Greek herald in the Trojan War. It is a solid, manly word indeed.

    August 16, 2008

  • Milo, I enjoy your contributions. I am seeking a new name. I cannot be associated with Jesus as Logos. It was your posting that got me thinking along these lines. And no, I have not risen; I am still around.

    August 16, 2008

  • But remember, a door is not a door when it is a jar... :-)

  • Fried Popes? Henry VIII must be salivating in his grave.

  • I must change my name. I am not divine. I think it is improper to be associated with the second person in God. Will be considering a new name for myself here on wordie.org. Any ideas from my fellow wordies? What should I re-name myself?

  • I am so flattered....

  • The sun reddened the necks of Southerners who worked outdoors or in fields, and hence the name. These folks were not the professionals or the educated class or the plantation types. Being a redneck is really a state of mind. It refers to a person who does not speak proper English, whose world view is limited, and who may harbor a lot of prejudice against certain groups. Rednecks are, above all, ignorant. Today we still use the word in the South and it is still derogatory. What is interesting is that the term can be used for a white person who is a leader or head of something, and whose influence is among the lower middle classes. I think many state senators where I live are rednecks because of their political views. I could be mistaken. . .but I don't think so.

  • rolig, what a nice thought!

  • There was a guy named Vlog
    who had a dog,
    who pooped in everyone's yard.
    Vlog did not flog the dog,
    but the dog did die
    after drinking egg nog
    in Vlog's back yard
    which abutted a bog,
    which smelled in the fog,
    after Vlog did jog.
    Vlog got a log
    and roasted a hog
    in honor of the dog
    who died near the bog.

    ...would any fellow insaniac like to continue this sordid tale?

  • You Alone are Holy One,
    You Alone are The Lord...

  • Well, yarb, it was a Scottish bishop who ordained priests and bishops in America after the American Revolution, bypassing the Church of England and the late unpleasantness of the war, thereby perpetuating the Anglican tradition in the US. Episcopalians in the US trace their structural roots to the Church of Scotland, a branch of the Church of England, not the Church of England. The Church of England is the English branch of the Holy Catholic Church begun by Henry VIII, through the Act of Supremacy, disestablished by Queen Mary, re-established by Edward VI, and perpetuated over time by Elizabeth I in the tradiiton known as the Elizabethan Settlement. Don't get me started on Apostolic Succession! It is wrong to say that the Church of Scotland is not episcopal. BAD INFO.

  • as in, viz., the last eight years of the Bush Administration. 2. An inane political joke upon the res publica created by the Party of Lincoln. 3. A tragic period of American history when the US went to war needlessly with lies about weapons of mass destruction, with concomitant tattletale books that reveal the clownish mishaps of that wonderful born-again scion of the Bush Family who cannot pronounce common words like nuclear. 4. A situation in which a man who graduates from Yale with a "C" in his major finds himself, not on Saturday Night Live, but rather, in The White House. 5. The fools surrounding such a fool. 5. The impact upon international alliances and concordances due to the antics of such people, and the subsequent embarrassment felt by millions of right-thinking Americans. 6. The feeling of most Americans when this pathetic White House folds its tents and slips into history come January 2009.

    No, that's how you spell r-e-l-i-e-f.

  • I do wish you wouldn't be like this. I as well as a number of other people have really appreciated what you've contributed to this site, but it's passing unfortunate that you have chosen to make a personal issue out of 42. If you want to leave, all for the best, I'm sure, but I think a lot of people, including yourself, would be happier if you would agree to just be calm about everything and, if criticizing a word, doing so in an impersonal way.

    God bless,
    T.
