some vocab for you

April 8th, 2008

Two new words for you:

Your French word-of-the-day:

gazouillis (gah-zoo-lee) noun, masculine
1. twittering, chirping, warbling (birds), gurgling (baby) ;
2. babbling, murmuring (of running water)

Your English word-of-the-day:

ebullient (i-BUL-yuhnt, -BOOL-) adjective
Bubbling with enthusiasm or excitement.
[From Latin ebullire (to boil up), from bulla (bubble).]

Library life, Internets, is going quite nicely. That’s about all you’ll hear from me on work. Happy Tuesday — have fun.

    Why isn’t gazouillis an adjective? Would you say “My gazouillis didn’t want to go for a walk?”

    “When I step into this library,
    I cannot understand why I ever step
    out of it. ”
