So, What's the Good Word?
Each day, alphaDICTIONARY will let you know what the Good Word is (so you don't have to ask). We select an interesting word and tell you all about it—how to say it, what it means, where it comes from, and how to use it. Some are familiar words with unusual histories; some are uncommon words we think you should know about. While we hope to help you build a vocabulary, our aim is broader: a mix of funny, beautiful, surprising, problematic, and other types of words that tell us something about ourselves and where we come from.
