Some of ya'll is wordsmiths in one form or t'other. Iffin' so, you'll have fun on this heah post. If not, well at least youse gonna learn some two dollar words.
On the Porch we have us a game we likes to play--it is hilarious and we learn to mind read when we plays it, 'cause after a bit, ya sorta figger out who is likely to craft his word this way or thata way....
Now, no cheatin', ya hear? It ain't No fun iffin' ya'll cheat.
Ready? Here we goes:
The rules is that Aunty puts out an akshull and real, but, strange or funky word, then ya'll write in what ya think the definition is. DO NOT GIT YORE DICTIONARY OUT TO CHECK! Play fair folks.
Here is an example:
Word is "athelia"
1. A huckster's apprentice
2. A person without nipples
3. Euphoric during intimacy
4. The female platypus
5. Tartan kilt donned for battle
Word is "longanimity"
Do it mean____
1. The ability to stretch one's limbs beyond the norm
2. Equidistant axises
3. Fermented sugar cane sediment
4. Patient plotting of revenge
5. A tendency to prissy speech
One of these is correct in each example ( answers is hidden in this post) but, them others? Why Aunty jes' pure-T made 'em up. Thas' what ya' does iffin' ya doan know the akshull definition.
Now, here is the word ya'll need to write the definition for:
Check back an' see what others wrote as the proposed definition of "geloscopy" an' then on Wednesday vote on the one ya think is closest--we's gonna see whose definition gits the most votes--
But DOAN PEEK at no dictionary or dictionary.com neither, ya'll. (Winner gits a mint julep while the rest of us sip lemonade)
