Special post: The Grandiloquent Word of the Day 2018 Wall Calendar, and a Y-word

(posting with the kind permission of our moderator, prettygoodword)

Several times, in the last few months, I've shared posts from the Grandiloquent Word of the Day FB page to this comm. So, I thought some of you might be interested in this announcement:

The Grandiloquent Word of the Day, by Jason Ott, is issuing a calendar for the upcoming year. You can reserve your copy in PDF and/or print today, and if you do, you will get a PDF bonus--The Grandiloquent Book of Shenanigans!

The deadline for pledging to reserve your copy is tonight, at 12 midnight.

Here's the link: http://tinyurl.com/grandcalendar


And a bonus word from their FB page:

Yafflephobia!



Yafflephobia
(YAF-ful-FO-bee-ya)
Noun
-The extreme or irrational fear of Woodpeckers.

From “yaffle" - a large green and yellow woodpecker (Picus viridis, family Picidae) with a red crown and a laughing call.
+
“phobia” via Latin from Greek - extreme or irrational fear or dislike of a specified thing or group.

Used in a sentence:
“Pinocchio was enjoying watching Saturday morning cartoons right up until The Woody Woodpecker Show induced a full-blown case of yafflephobia.”
