Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Not since Schoolhouse Rock has there been such rocking involving the English language. Such is the might of Aaron Poole. He is the only Wordsmith to have achieved such a level of knowledge that he is also referred to as Wordjones and in South America they refer to him as “Wordgutiérrez,” or sometimes “”Ese irlandés flaco que define las palabras.” Regardless of what you call him, he is your guardo camino when it comes to giving you the words you need so you can file them away for that crucial moment–that moment when you can break them out and use them to wow a potential mate. Because we all know that’s what language is for. So Get In There! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! 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 hope you will join Aaron as he evolves the monkey of ignorance into the tool-using bone-smashing mammal of knowledge…using the monolith that is Language.

Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #45: Abderian

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Language is power. Granted, power is also power. But in this case, for the sake of argument, language is power. And if you have a solid mastery of the language, you can harness that power and bend it to your will. Not in a ha-ha flying monkeys sort of way, but more in a pre-Parallax-silliness Hal Jordan kind of way. And if there’s a language equivalent of a tiny blue guy with white hair who floats around and talks funny…it’s Aaron Poole, Guardian of Verbiage. Recharge your vocabulary with his battery of linguistic power! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you’re trying to stick a random word into a password, thinking that will make it more secure! 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 hope you will join Aaron as he re-edits the Ryan Reynolds comic book adaptation of ignorance into the watchable film of knowledge…with the editing suite that is language.

We’ve all had to try and make the best of a bad situation. And sometimes you have to take whatever kind of edge you can lay hands upon.

Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #42: Fuddling

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Words are like alcohol. Think of the words you use everyday as your regular, workaday ale or glass of wine. And there’s nothing wrong with that–it’s comforting, in fact. However, every once in a while, it’s time for something special: a vintage whiskey or a top shelf cocktail. Think of Aaron Poole as your bartender of verbiage. He can pull one of those Cocktail flip-things and have a nice chilled glass of new vocabulary in your hand faster than you can say Yakov Smirnoff. So get Aaron to pour you on a double on the rocks! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you’re trying to describe to the jury why you wound up in that abandoned warehouse!

Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #40: Agastopia

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #38: Apodyopsis

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

The comic book villain Bullseye could take out someone from across the street using just a paper clip. Which is impressive, yes. But without words, how could I have conveyed that notion to you? Mime? Charades? An extremely long rebus? No. We need language. After all, scientists now speculate that the Neanderthal died out because they were, in essence, trying to play Pictionary against time for important bits of communcation like “Oh crap, there’s a lion right behind you.” But Aaron is like Bullseye but with language. His word selection never misses and–bonus–can take down a ceramic bull elephant at fifty yard. So make sure he’s on your team! Accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! When you’re trying to name your new ska-zydeco band! 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 hope you will join Aaron as he sheds the chains of ignorance while exercising the skill that is knowledge, using that-headdress-Storm-used-to-wear-that-had-the-lockpicking-kid-inside…that is Language.

Aaron Poole's Word-a-Week!

Are you dragged down by workaday concerns and worries? Maybe you need to scale back and get some easy wins. Like having a “100 Words to Work Gracefully Into Conversation Before I Die” list, for example.

Look to Aaron Poole, wordsmith, for the answer. Sure he’s got thirty-seven done…but that’s thirty-seven you don’t need to track down. He’s saving you time…and effort. Get on board! So fear not!
