In reading a blog response by someone on another blog, I had to look up the meaning of 2 words in one reply. I'm now trying to add them to my general vocabulary...and having fun with it when I get funny looks from people wondering what I'm talking about.
The two words and shortened definitions...
Inimical - unfriendly, hostile.
-(said to my kids...Just because you don't get to do what you want, is no reason to be inimical)
Didactic- Intended to instruct, or the practice of valuing litrature for it's instructional content.
- (My mentor can be pretty didactic when we're training.)
I'm wondering how long it'll be before I have to hand out definition cards while I'm having a conversation...
