For this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday, Linda Hill is asking bloggers to use “a word you have to look up.”
You know…spelling a word that doesn’t make sense when you have to spell it. The difficulty of the English language. The words that make us scratch our heads and question the meaning of a language that has it’s roots in long-ago Anglo-Saxon culture and a combination of Latin, Greek, French, German and Dutch words and pronunciations.
Maybe your word is conscience, fuchsia, minuscule, accommodate or weird.
Maybe it’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
(I had to look that up.)
I couldn’t come up with a specific word that’s been bugging me lately, but I remembered a blog post published seven years ago when I was having issue with the word tomorrow. I kept spelling it with two M’s.
So, my entry for Linda’s prompt is an old post you can read HERE. It was not written in the SoCS style, but I’m hoping the mistress of Saturday morning’s off-the-cuff writing will kindly look the other way.
Happy Saturday and may the spelling gods be with you.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.
