Word of the Day

I don't have much of interest to post right now, so... a word of the day for you! One related to writing even.

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.'"

Pronunciation: boo-struh-FEE-don.

What an interesting mouthful of a word! I can't even imagine using that in a sentence.

  1. Gosh, Lapillus,

    I'll certainly try to fit it in somewhere in my next blog. It could be useful.

    How's your actual writing going?

  2. That would get confusing to type a ms that way!

  3. Writing is going pretty good, Fran! I feel good about my new novel but its going to need a lot of work to get it done and polished, I think.

    I agree PJ!
