Word of the Day
Tuesday, June 19, 2007
Mala Dell (proper noun) — A town/village in the epic fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods where Nigel and Henry are to go during their training when they enter the military (this takes place about 8 or 9 years prior to the novel's beginning); a village along the east coast of Onweald north of Arcana City

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender assembled this word and made up this village from the words Mal (meaning "bad") and Dell (meaning "town")

Word in a Sentence (from the silly little diary of Abigail Farrier at the address of "I’m not sure how we are to repay the Naeglings for their kindness and the expense of the doctor’s visit and medicines before we go, but go we must. Father will not stay near Mala Dell for it is too close to Arcana… And that subject breaks my heart."

Your turn! Have any more of those seashore sentences in ya today? Or a sentence with the Latin "mal" to use our WOD?

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