    I think the WotD should be “quell” because it is a very uncommon word, but it basically means to overpower or conquer.

    It should be a word that is not well known, like “callipygian,” “defenestration,” or “antidisestablishmentarianism.” Or maybe “lampoon.” One of my favorites is “hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliaphobia” – it means the fear of long words. :)

    My grade {5th} has been doing an abundance of essay type vocabulary. I’ve been searching outside of class, & i found words that are pretty strange. The most interesting was fissilingual – having a forked or cloven tongue. I instantly thought of a reptile, and I hope u agree that this outlandish word could be easily retained if awareness of its existance was spread by becoming Word of the Day. Thank you.

    The words AFFECT and EFFECT together. I always have to run sentences in my brain to figure out which word means what when I read it or need to use it (the word).
    Thank you

    ‘Meringue’

    Makes me think of dessert and sweetness. It sounds nice to say. It reminds me of clouds

    “Dystopia”

    I had to write an essay and the prompt was, “Do you think Gathering Blue meets criteria for a dystopian society” and of course the second instruction on the paper was “Look up dystopia”

    “Tricentennial”

    Not only does it make me feel especially smart when I say it, but it’s beautiful and long. Tri- has always been my favorite prefix!

    This word is an unexpected one due to its strange spelling, and that is one of the reasons that it should be the word of the day! I like how when you say this word around certain people, they will think you are speaking gibberish! This is why I would like this word to become the word of the day; it is one of the dictionary surprises.

    There is either going to be a kerfuffle of comments here soon, or the discussion will just gradually grow until one entry is picked.

    “Constantinople” my favorite word. i think that it’s a fun word. We rarely use the word because of it not being a city. I personally that it is a good word for the younger generations to use.

    Defenestration!!

    “The act of throwing something or someone out of a window” A truly stupendous word because it has a very unusual definition :)

    Taco
    I love tacos because they are the best ever! No food in the world could replace tacos. They are that good! But anyways, tacos are just the best in all the world. They stand out of all the other foods making them the best!

    “Borborygmus.”

    Around lunch time, I like to tell my friends that I’m suffering from Borborygmus and those who doesn’t know the meaning speculate it to be some terminal disease or sexually transmitted one. Their looks on their faces are priceless. This word never fails to bring a little laugh.

    Antidisestablishmentarianism

    I love this word manly because of the large number of letters and because it starts with anti-dis which means it is against something being not.

    Not a favorite word, but I do think it roughly describes me… It also is the title of a famous book for teenagers and I know I used this word before it came out.

    “Leg” (math terms)
    A leg is the non-parallel part of a trapezoid or triangle. This word has nothing to do with the human body. That’s the funny part. It makes no sense. If the word leg of the human body is already invented why do they just change the definition. The way of American language is so interesting.

    “Skyscraper”

    It’s not really my favorite word, but I like the fact that it so aptly describes the things that bear the name and has become the word that we use routinely and totally without irony when we refer to them. We all know that they don’t really scrape the sky, but so what? That’s the name we have given them. Is there another word in our language that has these qualities?
