    I know “taradiddle” from the G&S musical Iolanthe – set perfectly, and tauntingly, to music by Sullivan. Interestingly, the word ‘equanimity’ is featured in one of the songs as well.

    Why not include words from other languages besides Yiddish such as e.g. schadenfreude, babushka, debacle, potpourri, taiga, ukase, zeitgeist, kitsch, matryoshka, zugszwang?

    Got 7/7 first time! Last three were more challenging. I love etymology, so even though I haven’t heard most of these words, I was able to make some sense of them. Not to say I am a professional or an etymologist, but I love putting my knowledge to the test!

      I love etymology, too! That’s how I was able to get them right. Have you read Word Power Made Easy? Love that book.

    I love words and word – smiths.
    I love knowing how to express myself clearly and as I speak for I want whomever is reading what I wrote to know immediately that those are my thoughts.
    English is a second language for me and what little I know of it, I’ve taught myself for I skipped 8th, 9th, 10th and half of the eleventh grade when I went to the States.
    Yet I managed by the mere strength of my desire to graduate from UCLA with a BA in Political Science.

    I look forward to the Word of the Day each morning and have ‘tagged’ many as favorites. In order to actually review, learn and ultimately use these new words, it would be highly useful to be able to export my favorites (and their definitions) – maybe by email?
