WOW: Word of the Week



“A man with a scant vocabulary will almost certainly be a weak thinker. The richer and more copious one's vocabulary and the greater one's awareness of fine distinctions and subtle nuances of meaning, the more fertile and precise is likely to be one's thinking. Knowledge of things and knowledge of the words for them grow together. If you do not know the words, you can hardly know the thing.” - Henry Hazlitt

In continuing with sharing my love of words, this week's word of the week is ......



Askance 

  1. 1: with a side-glance; in a way that shows a lack of trust or approval :  obliquely
  2. 2:  with disapproval or distrust :  scornfully <they eyed the stranger askance>






In other words, the infamous side eye
