Word of the Day
Wednesday, March 7, 2007
Vernacular (noun) – Native language of a people or group; the idiom of a trade or profession; everyday speech of a country, population, etc. (from Latin)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Hrazon and Chariss sometimes amuse the members of the Taiman family with phrases that are foreign to the Arcanan vernacular.

Your turn! I bet you have a good dialogue-centered sentence in you today…

“Some days, you just want the dragon to win.”

"Computerese" is the vernacular I would love to learn so I can then understand better how to do things on this lovely piece of equipment and also, to manipulate data on my blog. But, so far, it seems to be like reading ancient Egyptian would be to me.
