Word of the Day for Wednesday May 4, 2005
traduce \truh-DOOS; -DYOOS\,transitive verb:
To expose to contempt or shame by means of false statements or misrepresentation; to represent as blamable; to vilify.
I think all of us can be accused of this at some time or another.
I also discovered this as interesting:
whore (hôr, hr)n.
1) A prostitute.
2)A person considered sexually promiscuous.
3)A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.
It doesn't say:
A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain in a sexual manner.
It just says:
A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.
I found it interesting that a term we so commonly use to refer to a person who is sexually promiscuous can also be used for someone who it just a sucsessful but mean person.
Something to note though...a person could be a whore twice over...they could be a sexually promiscuous postitute, a prostitute who comprimises her principals for personal gain ( but I think they all do...unless they like fucking around and wouldn't mind screwing complete strangers (probably with diseases) for free!), or a person who is sexually promiscuous (like a paticular country) and also comprimising their princpals for personal gain of any type!
Anyway I'll leave you with this...the word of the day from my last birthday, please feel free to check out your own on dictionary.com - Word of the day---On the sidebar>>>
