laryngitis (word review video)

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When life hands you laryngitis, make a video.

don (word review video)

In this week’s word review, I look at a word you may hear more often in December than some other times of the year.

snook (word review video)

Now that I’m done my month-long work of fiction, it’s time to head back into the word tastings and word reviews. It’s been more than a month since my last video, and I certainly don’t mean to thumb my nose at my readers…

Hallowe’en (word review video)

Today I’m reviewing Hallowe’en. Not Halloween – just the version with the apostrophe.

bigly (word review video)

It’s time for another word review! Some people will say that I can’t do a word review of bigly because it’s not a word. I say they are bigly mistaken. Take five minutes and see for yourself.

whisper (word review video)

It’s time for another word review video. For this one, I used my clip-on stereo microphone because I had to. As I listen to the sound, I am wishing I had a better microphone; please accept my apologies for some of the extra noise. I tried a variety of things to abate it and this was about as good as I can do. My best suggestion is for you to turn the sound down a bit. Which you should anyway, given the subject… and the delivery.

incent [video]

Time for another word review video. I’ve covered the word incent before in one of my fictional vignettes, but I think it merits a review video as well.

Incidentally, I happily accept suggestions for other words to review. That doesn’t mean I’ll get to them all, but it does incent me.
