What is the Word of the Day? In a word, neology: creating new meanings for existing words. It’s what comedian, writer, and former English major Leighann Lord does for fun. Every weekday at 9am she posts a real word, its real definition, and then an alternate definition (#ALTDEF) in 140 characters. It helps you feel smarter and happier at the same time. http://www.DictJokes.com.
