Word of the Day
Boustrophedon: "The writing of alternate lines in opposite directions (as from left to right and from right to left)."
Word origin per the Online Etymology Dictionary...
"1783, ancient form of writing with lines alternately written left-to-right and right-to-left, from Gk., lit. 'turning as an ox in plowing,' from bous 'ox' + strephein 'to turn.'"
What an interesting mouthful of a word! I can't even imagine using that in a sentence.
