Description


This is the gold standard of word calendars. For students, writers, readers, crossword buffs, and all lovers of language, it's the pleasure of learning a new word every day from the editors at Merriam-Webster, the world's most respected dictionary. Discover literary words (Aesopian: conveying an innocent meaning to an outsider but a hidden meaning to a member of a conspiracy or underground movement), words that are too much fun not to use (slugabed: a person who stays in bed after the usual or proper time to get up), and more. Each entry includes a definition, pronunciation, sample sentence, and detailed word history.
