Don't you love the way some words flow from your lips when spoken? Even the sound they make as they roll of your tongue is enough to excite the avid reader. I have decided to document a word, here and there. Some may sound great, or just look great on paper, or maybe it is the definition that moves me? But you will know about it. This urge may also been inspired by the fact that I am taking an English class at the moment, and I feel that my vocabularly is seriously lacking.
So the word I choose for today is:
Etymology: Latin asininus, from asinus ass
1 : marked by inexcusable failure to exercise intelligence or sound judgment <an asinine excuse>
2 : of, relating to, or resembling an ass
Text: showing or marked by a lack of good sense or judgment <it was asinine to run into the street like that>
