Typically, we feature words that are organized around a theme each week. Words borrowed from Spanish, orwords with all vowels, or words from mythology, for instance.

Random times call for random words. Once in a while, we just close our eyes and open the dictionary. Then we point a finger somewhere on the page. We did this five times and these words popped up. What are the odds?



adjective: Faked or fraudulent.

A corruption of the word triumph, from Old French triumphe, from Latin triumphus (triumph), from Greek thriambos (hymn to Dionysus). Also see, trumpery. Earliest documented use: 1728.

"Hell, my reputation was born of grassroots journalism; never was I ever guilty of cheap trumped-up sensationalism!"
Ian Way; Envoys from the Stars; Balboa Press; 2015


"Yes, yes, but I bring that out in people. I do. I'm not saying that's an asset or a liability, but I do bring that out. ...I bring rage out. I do bring rage out. I always have."
- Candidate Donald J. Trump in April, 2016
