Word-A-Week Vocabulary Vlog #46: Otiose

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.
