Word of the Day
Wednesday, April 25, 2007
Talion (noun) - A punishment equal to the offense; a punishment worthy of the crime (from Middle English talioun and Latin talio - long sounds on the a and o)

Word in a Sentence: In Sandy Lender's novel Choices Meant for Gods, Sorne's father receives a just talion when Nigel snaps his neck. (Violent, eh? I love that scene... It's probably one of the reasons I ended up with a PG rating. Doggonit.)

Your turn! Have any "Law & Order" sentences for me today? (See, there I go with the Sam Waterson thing again...it must be an underlying obsession that I'm not aware of.)

"Jack" (Sam Waterson's role on L&O) sometimes has a difficult time trying to figure out a talion when entering into a plea bargain situation. Not the least bit unlike some of the bickering that happens here pertaining to lack of attending to homework and poor grades as a result. What to do, what to do, often becomes the dilemma here too.
