The semester is over or winding down, and you have a huge stack of briefs to grade. When you need a break, come see your friends at the Legal Writing Prof Blog. For the next several days, we will post a grading distraction for your edification or amusement.
Today's grading distraction is the Word of the Day at the online Oxford English Dictionary. While there are many "word-of-the-day" sites on the Internet, this site is particularly instructive, providing not only every definition the OED has for the selected word, but also its pronunciation, etymology, and a cool chart that shows when the word came into the English lexicon.
