Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #2: Apoplectic

Aaron Poole

We’re late. It’s not Aaron’s fault. It’s my fault…and the fault of the event horizon of DragonCon. But we are back on track with Aaron Poole, who wants you to broaden your minds. Kind of like Jack Nicholson in the museum scene of Batman but lacking the Prince music. With this edutaining feature, Aaron brings you a word. A word you can use! In conversation! In the written word! Even 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 climb aboard Aaron’s flume ride…into the cold, soaking realm that is Language.

  • People from your corner of the world (Ireland, England, and Scotland) can use the word apoplectic better than any other English speakers on the planet.

    It’s weird.

  • I like that “Ireland, England, and Scotland” is a corner of the world…like where you are sent for time out when you are naughty in Ms. Ellerby’s third period math class.
