Tuesday, November 1, 2016 – One Week Away – Logophobia


Tuesday, November 1, 2016 – One Week Away

I hope you and your neighborhood had a safe and candy-filled Halloween. I passed out tequila shots and cigarettes again this year. The children did not seem too happy, but the parents really enjoyed it.

But onward thru the fog…

Good Morning, Class,

Our vocabulary word for today is “logophobia.” It is a noun meaning an obsessive fear of words.

Quote: There is just one cure for logophobia and that is self-scrutiny—to discover whether one’s reaction to a given term when seen in a newspaper or heard from a platform is really justified by the true significance. “Logophobia,” The Nation, August 23, 1919.
