Today's word is untie


Well, I’ve managed to learn the basics of blogging, Googling and Facebooking, so it was only a matter of time before I gritted my beak and started Twittering. You’re welcome to follow me as I “tweet” each day’s new word, although I’m not sure exactly why you’d want to when you could just come straight here instead. Perhaps readers could suggest some more innovative ways of embracing the Twitter/My First Dictionary experience...?

Today's word is early


In case you missed ’em, here are a couple of real-life My First Dictionary oddities spotted by readers. First, Snoise shared this strangely creepy snippet, spotted on an old schoolhouse wall in Dorset... Just what has the lady got in her hand? And why does it have that effect on the boy? Then, the wonderfully-named Half Mum Half Biscuit found this half-funny, half-depressing description of a very large man, which she’s posted on her blog along with some other gently melancholy pages concerning a parachute jump. Please let me know if you come across any more!
