Word Ways


Darryl Francis


This article started life as a collection of odd slips of paper. While thumbing through dictionaries, or researching for other articles, I am inclined to note interesting words for possible use later. These words are usually irrelevant to the piece of research I am doing at the time, but they look good fodder for reexamination later on. I have a file stuffed full of these oddballs. In an attempt to downsize the file, I decided to bring 26 of these items together in this article, each one representing a different letter of the alphabet.
