Word a Day

Today’s word of the day in my vocabulary building day calendar?

“batman”

But I think it’s pronounced batmen, or more accurately, like watchman. It means: “A British military officer’s orderly.”

One time the word of the day was “tricksy,” and that’s when I learned that Tolkien didn’t invent that word.

Also: Spinal Column. That was a word of the day one Saturday.

Didn’t learn much that weekend.
