Prior to joining this forum, I used to be one of those that posted #WOTD (Word of the Day) on Twitter. I felt it increased my word power. Felt, hell! It most certainly did. Often times I muse about twitting my newly found word to fellow tweeps, but lack of time no longer affords me to do such. Thank you, Bitcoin.

Unless, of course, I restart the practice here on BitcoinTalk, albeit a smaller group of cohorts, I believe such a thread would be most receptive. That said, today's WOTD (linked) is...

Apotropaic

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id=Bb1OAAAAIBAJ&sjid=ZgsEAAAAIBAJ&pg=1920,4535221&dq=apotropaic&hl=en
Quote
His attempts to disguise his writing as being apposite and apotropaic is emetic. He could use some improvement in resolution in the coming new year.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorgoneion
Quote
In Ancient Greece, the Gorgoneion was originally a horror-creating apotropaic pendant showing the Gorgon's head.

I'll used http://dictionary.reference.com daily for my inspiration, although a handful of other sites offer up their own WOTD. My daily posts will consist of gleaning references from the internet that have incorporated the WOTD in text and images. I'll even Google it with the word "Bitcoin" to see if I'll be able to relay a prior or obscure connection. For instance:


Sweetie Belle by Apotropaic Puppet

Feel free to post and discuss any word that recently has tickled your fancy, coupled with commenting on a current or past WOTD on this thread.

One final thought: Consider incorporating the current WOTD in your very next post.

Caparison

Quote
The silky dark brown horse snorts, its head reared downwards, eyes fixed on the opponent metres away. Its caparison, featuring his rider’s heraldic signs, flaps in the warm spring breeze. Stamping its front right hoof nervously, it curls its head inwards, eyes never leaving the opponent.

It is best to study conditions of neighborhoods and schools and then caparison the children accordingly.

Aperçu

http://www.guardian.co.uk/books/2012/apr/13/missing-shade-blue-jennie-erdal-review?newsfeed=true
Quote
Too much of the book, though, is aperçu-stuffed and relentlessly discursive, whether it's Edgar and Harry conducting boozy Socratic dialogues or Edgar and Carrie earnestly agreeing with each other about how ineffable and mysterious translation and painting are.

Whether that is an unfortunate aesthetic miscalculation or simple common sense--many folks like a well-turned aperçu and down-home metaphor--it’s always a relief to encounter a Nashville musician who dispenses with most of that words-and-music linkage.

I've opt to not give the definitions of the WOTD but do link the words to dictionary.com. Then I provide a couple instances, along with a link, showing the word used in context. The accompanied image, albeit sometimes abstract, helps in defining the term.

Ensconce

Quote
It's a shame that this is the tease because I want more, it's a story that I want to sit and enjoy, a time period that I want to ensconce myself in.

Its purpose was to ensconce visiting warmongers in elegant lodgings while they priced munitions.

Aphotic

http://www.uen.org/Lessonplan/preview.cgi?LPid=8258
Quote
The aphotic zone receives no light at all, and this region's inhabitants live in complete darkness…with the exception of the lights they emit from their own bodies.

http://www.nytimes.com/2004/08/29/books/review/29BISSELL.html
Quote
This urge does not necessarily result in novels with nameless characters, mutating typography or unpunctuated attempts to explore the aphotic realm of human consciousness.

Unfortunately, 'organosomy' doesn't have quite the same ring to it. Otherwise I'd be encouraging it (well, for females, anyway).

That's an odd tool to have... Or unique rather?

Most of us have dual purpose tools, such as this:

A simple way of representing this hierarchy is a pyramid. Each contour is numen from the point of view of the contour below, and gaudens in comparison with that above.

It is numen, a god- or witch-like power that asserts itself in the contrast between dark and light, night and day, sickness and health, power and powerlessness, vivisectionist and corpse on the operating table.

It seemed to him that it was much more economical to dispose of it as they did, though the arrangement was besot with some little difficulty, and it was only reasonable that they should try and save £15000 out of the fire.

Corbitant's village was besot, and some of his people were wounded. Squanto, the interpreter, who was supposed to have been killed, had, it turned out, suffered no harm.
