This week, the word I have randomly picked from my dictionary is:
polonaise: n 1 a ceremonial marchlike dance in three-four time from Poland. 2 a piece of music composed for or in the rhythm of this dance. 3 a woman's costume with a tight bodice and an overskirt drawn back to show a decorative underskirt. from F danse polonaise Polish dance.
Cor! Will this endless tide of knowledge never ebb?!
This should not be confused with mayonnaise, which is the language that disc jockeys speak.
