Nerdiness unleashed

So as many people may know, I’m an English major and I get a sick twisted pleasure out of words. Because of this, I subscribe to the Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day (something I was introduced to waaaaaaaay back in middle school). Others may have noticed that my name is not spelled in the traditional “-ie” way many of my peers do so I get really excited when I find my name in popular culture somewhere unexpected or somebody knows how to spell my name properly. With that note, I give you today’s word of the day and the example sentence.

haptic • HAP-tik • adjective
*1 : relating to or based on the sense of touch 2 : characterized by a predilection for the sense of touch
Example sentence:
Katy could tell one kind of yarn from another purely by haptic clues.

Let it be known that “-ie”s should look out. We WILL take over the world.

One thought on “Nerdiness unleashed

  1. I always get the WOTD on iGoogle, but it doesn’t show an example sentence. So I missed it.

    I’ve seen other Katy’s, actually. I think you might have been the opening salvo in the war against the traditional Katie’s of the world.
