Hmn, here I was, all excited about my ‘Big words’ calendar and the ‘big’ word of today is the rather short and shifty, louche.
This calendar doesn’t include pronunciation or even etymology. I must admit to being very disappointed so far.
Bring back the Forgotten English word a day calendar (I didn’t ask for this one as I figured there was only so much forgotten English to be found) or the Monty Python fact a day calendar (again – not asked for as I was slightly embarrassed to realise that I knew, yes knew a number (many – er ‘up to 9’) of the quotes and songs off by heart…).
What was that? The meaning? The meaning of what? Oh, louche? I already told you.
