Word of the Day #1

15 11 2006

Welcome to my new feature. Each day I will share a word I love, hate, or in some way find interesting. This will NOT count as a post for NaBloPoMo as I think that would be cheating. I just love words. Without further ado, word of the day #1:

curmudgeon n. bad-tempered person

Ooh, that’s one of my faves too!! Maybe I just mix with too many cantankerous old codgers?

According to ‘The Superior Person’s Book of Words’ by Peter Bowles, ‘curmudgeon’ applies to men only. There appears to be no female equivalent. Says a lot, doesn’t it?

It does, although I am peeved that we get such words as bitch and cow. I would rather be called a curmudgeon when I was being cantankerous (also love that word!).
