This week has already been filled with some incredible events and it’s only Wednesday! Yesterday I listened to Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere (BBC Dramatization) and fell in love with his writing style! Seriously, where have I been all this time?
My word for the day is related to another discovery I made yesterday. The word is…
- adj. tending to clear from a charge of fault or guilt (as defined by Dictionary.com)
So yesterday I started listening to the ‘Serial’ podcast, a spin-off of ‘This American Life’ on NPR. I have long abhorred [ooh, that’s a good word for a future post!] people talking on radio so the fact that I got sucked into this 12-part series is kind of amazing. Then again, I do enjoy crime stories….
There are many times when the host, Sarah Koenig, uses the word exculpatory when discussing evidence in the case around which the podcast is based. I just like the sound of the word: the hardness at the beginning that kind of loses steam by the end of the word. It almost feels like the word starts out angry and then forgets why halfway through. It has a nice mouthfeel.
