Welcome to 1word1day, a Word-A-Day community where an elite squadron of volunteer posters present tasty, daily morsels of old, new, forgotten and modern words to educate, enlighten and amaze our readers.
There's really not much else to say!
Our rules here are simple, and we really only have one: Don't be a dick. It's pretty self-explanatory, and we'll let you know if you break it.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy our parcels of sweet, sweet lingual knowledge, delivered by the following Wordsmiths:
Interested in posting? We are always interested in people that may be up for substitute roles (that is, you fill in when someone's not available, and may become permanent if they no longer want to do it). Currently volunteering: brendala
We're also looking for regular themed posters! Know a lot of cool science-y or biblical words? Bit of an expert in how modern English derives from Latin? Consider yourself on the forefront of words adopted from other languages, movies or other sources? Let us know!
Posts can be composed in advance and using LiveJournal's configurations will allow you to post on time even while away or during a holiday.
All queries, questions and concerns may be directed to either maintainer via LJ private message.
Hey, find this place and wondering if we have a Facebook page? We didn't, but now we do! And yes, the Facebook group's link DOES end in 1337 - neat!
Some changes have been made to LiveJournal, and we hope you enjoy them! As we continue to improve the site on a daily basis to make your experience here better and faster, we would greatly appreciate your feedback about these changes. Please let us know what we can do for you!
