Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Don't be fooled by the fact that there aren't a lot of synonyms for the terminology of "moving house." And don't wonder at the notion that a building isn't been pushed around Ireland by one relatively skinny but wordsmithy individual. No. Don't do those things. Because you'll simply be distracting yourself from the real issue: you need words. You need words that can be whipped out like shuriken at a moment's notice, to defend yourself from moments of being tongue-tied...those moments that sneak up on you like ninjas wearing brand-new Dr. Scholl's-enhanced slippers. And despite the fact he can't afford fingers in his gloves, Aaron Poole is here to bring you knowledge! Knowledge in the form of a new, shiny word! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you're whispering sweet nothings into your pillow at night! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.

We urge you to join Aaron as he fights off ignorance using the katana of knowledge, all in order to eventually face down the Bolo Yeung...that is Language.
