SAY THAT AGAIN....11/26/23

A “voiced labiodental fricative” is a phrase used to describe a type of consonantal sound used in some languages. Basically they are weird noises.


I had never heard these words before so thought I’d look up a few more just for fun.


Limerence is the state of being infatuated or obsessed with another person - like Donald Trump, perhaps?


Obdurate is an adjective used to describe someone who stubbornly refuses to change one’s opinion or course of action - like election deniers maybe?


Flimflam is nonsensical or insincere talk - like what you hear on Fox News?


Loquacious is someone who talks a great deal - like what Vivek Ramaswamy does?


Omnishambles is a noun that describes a situation that has been comprehensively mismanaged, characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations - like during the Trump Administration?


Tintinnabulation is a tinkling sound - we all make one of these several times a day.


And finally….


Persiflage is slightly contemptuous mockery or banter - this is what I do every morning.
