Word of the Week – Myriad and Million

When we think about  numbers, we don't often consider that once upon a time, they didn't go very high. But in fact, in ancient days, there weren't words for anything greater than "ten thousand."

Time for the third installment of the Mock Latin series! Omnium gatherum ~ So technically, this one is only partly "mock." 😉 Omnium is indeed a Latin word for "of all things." Kind of like miscellaneous. In the 1520s (this one is OLD!), people came up with the humorous addition of gatherum to...

Today we're continuing our Mock Latin series with a few more totally fabricated, totally joke words that make me smile. =) Cruciverbalist - Our first word is actually quite new, dating from 1977. If you look at the parts of the word, we have the roots crux which means "cross" and verbum which...
