Today’s ‘Word Of The Day’ On Dictionary.Com Is So F’n Ridiculous I Don’t Believe It Actually Exists
In 2006, I made the fatal error of subscribing to Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day email. Nine years later, I haven’t died yet, but I’m certain my death will be at its hands. For some gluttonous reason, I am still receiving it anI I am still deleting it without even opening it 99% of the time. I know that I can unsubscribe to it, but I think I’ve been waiting for the straw to break the camel’s back.
Today might have been that straw. And the word that might finally make me click unsubscribe is “floccinaucinihilipilification.” SAY WHAT?!?!
For me, the word is completely unpronounceable — even after listening to the computer lady saying it 20 times — and it looks like what happens when you fall asleep on your keyboard. I bet this thing would even cripple one of those child spelling bee geniuses.
That is the perfect definition for this word. It’s only appropriate the word that means “the estimation of something valueless” is, itself, completely valueless.
