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.

guttle, grinagog, gressible

Hello again, and welcome back. Have you even dared think that my stock of words has begun to run dry? Well, perish the thought, because this is a bottomless well, and we have not yet begun to fight! I have thousands, likely hundeds of thousands of these amazing words running around in my cranium, obtained over many years of patient and asiduous effort, and as usual, I am happy to share them with you.

Today's first word is:Guttle (GUT-ull) verb It means to swallow greedily, to gorge one's self. here is your sentence: "Jay had forgotten his manners again. At the restaurant, to his family's chagrin, he guttled his food as if he hadn't eaten in three days."

Well, that was fun! Let's do another, shall we? have you heard the word grinagog before? Well, you have now! (GRIN-ah-gogg) noun This amusing and colorful word means a person with a large, perpetual grin Sentence? OK. "Jimmy was a happy kid; a grinagog whom the other kids avoided because they perceived him as being a sort of nerd."

The next word is gressible (GRESS-uh-bull) adjective:having the ability to walk, "Fred built a robot in his basement using spare parts gleaned from the junkyard. It had artificial speech, and could grasp objects, but despite his best efforts, he could not make it fully gressible."

Well, I'll leave for now, but I will be back again tomorow!

Here is a little something to think about. "Daffy say "Man who live in glass house, should see to it that he always wears bathrobe late at night!"


See ya'!

Doug
