Word of the Day
Monday, June 11, 2007
Telabyrinth (noun) - A medical condition in the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods; this is a bad thing; telabyrinth poisoning occurs when a Geasa'n overexerts him or herself teleporting (you can pronounce it however you wish, but I've always said it with a stress on the first and third syllables and with a long I sound for the y; telebIrinth)

Etymology: tel comes from the root "teleport"; labyrinth comes from the labyrinth or "inner ear"; Fantasy author Sandy Lender created the word by combining the two concepts and making up the disease for the Geasa'n in her world

Word in a Sentence (from the fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 10): Even without Chariss's final wish, Kora couldn't have told him that the child he loved like a daughter had telabyrinth poisoning.

Your turn! Now, you may be out of practice getting all uber-creative because my internet connection was down over the weekend (and still is), but I bet you can turn it on to write something fabulous for me today. What poisonous sentences can you come up with?

"Some days, I just want the dragon to win."
