Daffy's Logolept Page and Word a Day Blog

A blog to help others improve their vocabularies. I feature several words every day. The words are eclectic mix of words gathered over many years. I also feature sentence examples, and I try to write in an informal friendly style.

Hello again! Todays' word is beblubberd (bee-BLU-berd) A nice little word that means to have one's face disfigured from crying.

I'll have to come up with a sentence for you. Let me give it a go: "After little Johny's ice-cream fell onto the ground, he made a point to cry and scream in front of his mom, until she finally wiped his snotty little nose, and dried the tears from his beblubbered face, and gave him a nickel for his loss."

Don't you feel sorry for that little brat kid? Don't you commiserate with him? Well I don't.

And about yesterday's word, bandicoot. If you suspected it was not a complimentary word, you are absolutely correct. By calling you that, I just called you a foot long rat with feet like a pig.
Honest folks, I did not make that up. That is an actual decription of an animal we call the bandicoot. Not something I would like to meet in the dark, that's for sure!

Here is another word for you to try to figure out until tommorow. The word is mumblecrust. I won't tell you what it is now, but I will give you a clue: Sometimes it waves.
I have to run and get some shut-eye, that is if I am not stricken by agrypnia tonight.
