Word of the Day
Friday, July 20, 2007
Sorne (proper noun) — Sorne Jeel is the lad Amanda Chariss saves from execution in Arcana City one day; he is the son of Priam Jeel; Kora Taiman adopts him as a member of the Taiman family when Priam is "executed" and the boy is orphaned

Etymology: Fantasy Author Sandy Lender doesn't remember where the name originated, but it started out as Sorin, which was too close to Jorin, his friend/brother once he gets to the Taiman estate, so she had to change it

Word in a Sentence (from the high fantasy novel Choices Meant for Gods, page 84, Sergeant Naegling is thinking): How was he to prevent her getting hurt, yet preserve Sorne Jeel?

Your turn! Yeah, today I think you're just going to have to make up a sentence about a boy named Sorne. If you haven't already read Choices Meant for Gods, let me just sum-up Sorne for you: pathetic and wimpy. Nice kid, but truly pathetic and wimpy. Now go for it.
