I can’t remember where I stumbled across A.Word.A.Day, but I enjoy getting the daily notification in my email.
Talk about a quick vocabulary builder! It only takes a minute to read the day’s selection, pronunciation, meaning, etymology, and usage.
A.Word.A.Day is a service provided by Wordsmith, a worldwide online community of people who enjoy all things having to do with words (remind you of anyone?)
It’s convenient and easy, so I wanted to share with my blogger friends.
If interested, you can read more about it on their website here:

Thanks for sharing – I used to get this daily email for years – when it was just Anu Garg running it – I peeked at the link and see they continue to thrive and have a team now – which is awesome and cheers to words – but I won’t be following them ever again – just not for me anymore –
But again / so many awesome ways to build our vocabulary
Yes, according to the site Anu Garg started it in 1994. I only stumbled across it a couple of years ago. Just to clarify, there’s no affiliate program & I’m not promoting it for any reason other than to share for fun. They come up with so many words I’ve never heard of! Always grateful for feedback…Thank you!
