Summary: Today it's your turn to look up a word and see what you can find. Share your findings in a comment post—and you could win a prize!
Recently, I read a newspaper article that I'm sure was written by an A.P. reporter. What makes me say that? Why the use of only one word: truculent.
Want to know what it means? Well, for today anyway, you're on your own. Use the remainder of this week to do a little searching (here's a nice list of e-dictionaries to help you with your search), and post your findings in the comments section of this blog post. The first person to correctly respond in each category—definition, etymology and pronunciation (we love sound files here!)—will win a nice prize: a free e-workbook titled "Speak Your Truth: How to Say What You Mean to Get What You Want."
Ready, set, search!
