Word of the Day
- In grammar and rhetoric, construction according to the sense, in violation of strict syntax.
This comes from the Greek 'sunesis,' union, understanding.
Quote of the DayMan has lost the basic skill of the ape, the ability to scratch its back. Which gave it extraordinary independence, and the liberty to associate for reasons other than the need for mutual back-scratching.
- Jean Baudrillard (b. 1929), French semiologist.
