Friday’s web zen–wordy
zen–includes a link to
the place where Oxford Dictionary aces answer all of the peculiar questions you
simply can’t go another day without having resolved. Examples:
the opposite of exceed,
the word for a word which is another word spelled backwards, and
words containing uu. Splitting at the hyperseams with lexical
overmuchness, this site is.
My favorite Q&A, however, and the one to which I first returned for practical
name for a group of cats: clowder. When the Villanova Wildcat
contingent rushed the court after knocking of #1 UConn (much to my satisfaction,
I’ll add) earlier this evening, I had something to call it by.
