Words of the week

trump

 

What I love about words is how often I am wrong about what they mean. Usually they are in the context of something that makes them make sense but today I found myself wrong about a few. I run into words a lot because I read a lot. Newspapers and Magazines Mostly.

Here we go

“Putative”: (this was in an article about excessive incarceration in the U.S. I thought it meant punitive..) “Generally Considered To Be.”

“Voluble” (in an article about Trump)….”Speaking Incessantly”

“Apotheosis” (I can’t remember..probably New York Times) “The highest point or culmination of

something.”

“Plebescites” (I keep seeing this in the context of Brexit (the exit of Britain) from the European Union) it means “A direct Vote to Decide”

 

How is this relevant to anything? For one, many of us are writers and love words. For second, many of the people who ‘follow’ me have depression or bipolar and studies prove learning new shit helps mood function. How? I don’t know but I am going to find out.

    • a lot of people are looking for writers. That perks me up to. I wrote this one about mood changes when I was in a depression. It was called “cha cha cha changes” like the David Bowie song. Then, later he died. But do yu see how this one song he wrote “Turn and face the strange?” made it ok to feel weird or different? And there’s all kinds of little things like that. Nami groups are good too. I hear DBSA is good but it’s far away from me.
