This isn't the blog post that has been stewing for quite some time on connective writing (I promise to post it soon!) but my Bloglines account has been chock full of thought provoking pieces on words that I thought I would share!
First, over at PaperCuts a hilarious post on "crapulence" and other examples of lexicon excess!! Seriously - I am finding a way to work these words into conversation tomorrow!
Then, PaperCuts goes on about the words NOT to use when reviewing a book because they are so overused!! Love it!
Then, a fellow professional developer from the area reflects upon a deep curriculum alignment project they have done and most interestingly on their findings regarding teaching vocabulary. A very powerful series of posts - with more to come!
Finally, in this time of political rhetoric and the ever-lasting election season, comes this cartoon. (I post it here only because of the connection to words and not because of any political leanings that I might have!!)
What is your final word?
