Word of the Week: August 28, 2023

Word of the Week: a bookish meme hosted here on Mondays in which we share a word that we find entertaining, enlightening, edifying, or just plain fun to say! Share your own word on your blog, then help me grow the meme and come share it here on mine!

Have you ever seen a word in writing and sounded it out a certain way in your head, then realized you had no idea how to actually pronounce it? Today’s word is for you!

Perhaps orthoepy can help us learn to pronounce all those words we understand just fine in written context.

And I find it entertaining that a word that means “the customary pronunciation of a language” itself has different pronunciations! Check out the Merriam-Webster dictionary entry.

Got a word? Share it below! Then share the meme to help it grow.
