It's time for-Word Of The Week!

Hi there!  It's time once again for my Word Of The Week.
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.

All New Feature!!!!!

Hi folks!
I'm aware that I've been a bit lax in the upkeep of my pointless blog of late. Therefore, I am proud to announce my attempt to present you with..da da da daaaah! WORD OF THE WEEK!!!! Did you see that? 4 exclamation marks!...And capital letters!
Any road up, every Tuesday, I shall be closing my eyes and selecting at random a word from my dictionary, for no adequately explored reason. Perhaps we shall learn something or increase our vocabulary. In any case, it can't do any harm. So here we go....
This weeks word of the week is........
globigerina n 1 a marine protozoan having a rounded shell with spiny processes.
2 globigerina ooze. a deposit on the ocean floor consisting of the shells of these protozoans.
Phew! interesting eh?
