Word of the Week Instructions

After finding out that you only need to be a 4th grader to read my stuff, I figured it was time to take the initiative (that counts as a 4 syllable word!) to broaden my vocabulary.

So I am starting Word of the Week!

Every Sunday, I will post a word and it's definition here. The challenge is for everyone to try and use the word in their posts sometime within that week. Providing I see you use it or you let me know somehow that you used it (email or trackback), the following Sunday we'll have a little linky orgy of all that have attempted to increase their vocabulary, confuse their readers and use the word of the week. For those of you that have not jumped on the blogwagon yet, I welcome you to leave your example in the comments.

We have a few goals:

  1. To see if our readability scores increase.
  2. To find the best, most original, or dysfunctional use of the word.
  3. To see how many people catch on to the Word of the Week.

(This post will remain at the top of the page this week to make sure everyone gets an opportunity (5 syllables!) to participate)
