Most of the time I chalk it up to being a typo, but more and more I see people misusing this particular not-quite-homonym, so I'd like to set the record straight (as if anyone but me actually cares, lol).
Below are the first 10 definitions of each from Dictionary.com...
Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is...
Words! I am hungry for them, I am in love with them, I cherish them, I use them, I need them, I want them, I dream of them, really I do! Words run through my blood!

They take forms and materialized
That we can’t managed anymore
They collapse as torrents
In people’s life
They can be obstacles
Like walls from armed cement
Not easy to get through
Accommodated between the marsches
The more it moved,
discourse is rare so to say nowadays. I find myself plunged into boredom or annoyed very easily by people's lack of intelligence or serpentine and highly disgraceful sentiments that elute the filth stored in their little mundane minds. There's nothing wrong in being amorous for...

This is a moment in time.
Where everything is confused. You can feel the anger, the sadness, the disullionment with a GOD who hasn't done what seems fair. This is the moment in time that you can feel like a sharp sword in the raw and cold and brutal silence of the car.
Words are funny things.
They can hurt like the dickens.
They can heal... be a balm after a brouhaha.

Dissonance is word of the day. I've had to read and write it a lot today and every time I do, I enjoy the way it sounds, which is ironic considering it's meaning.
But when you add the word 'cognitive' in front of it, well that's just like a party for my tongue!

or use too many words. That's because I'm a word girl. I LOVE WORDS! I think only people who love words can understand this concept. To limit my words is to limit who I am. So many words in my head dying to get out. It's time to start my novel today!!!
it's been living and spreading since the beginning of time... but there is so many different ways to love that sometimes, the way it is expressed is being misinterpreted and can be confusing.
There is the unconditional love you feel for your kids, no matter what they do or how...
Whenever I read a book, I use a blank paper as a bookmark and write down not just words I don't know but words I know but love or would like to use more often...I filled my paper with this book. Yes, the story was good, but the vocabulary was astounding! Here's a few highlights...
How many times the word ********* is used in the book The Prince and the Pauper??? Of course they are using it as meaning to spit out, or put forth. The language is old English and I'm having to read it with my daughter. Wth?? LOL it's exhausting. But I do crack up when I read...
and the Pauper with daughter. You may remember my last post about how many times ********* appears in the book. WELL get this!!! Today we were reading and she was going along nicely when she looked at this words and tried to pronounce it, and looked at me like, is that right? I...
I have had health problems growing up so I spent a lot of time just being sick and unable to do a lot. Books are like my form of travel and adventure. They are my passport to all sorts of experiences. Yes I watch movies and TV and stuff but its not the same. When I open a book I...

I have noticed how lazy my vocabulary has become. It is evident in my answers to questions, personal messages, etc. I would grimace to know how many times I have used the word " nice!" Its odd....because I LOVE words. Many years ago, at least ten, in noticing my lackluster vocab...
“A man with a scant vocabulary will almost certainly be a weak thinker. The richer and more copious one's vocabulary and the greater one's awareness of fine distinctions and subtle nuances of meaning, the more fertile and precise is likely to be one's thinking. Knowledge of...

Let my words enter your mind bearing torches
Let them rekindle again your forbidden desires
Allow them willingly into your being

Your words blanket me and draw me into your world of fantasy. The mist descends and everything around us disappears... I watch your mouth move with sensual syllables, and your eyes alight with passionate fire.
My soul submerges deeply into you as you weave a story of passionate...

I thought I'd get closer
so I walked on over.
I sat down and asked her name...
When the drinks finally hit her she said:

I'm hungry for laughter, and here ever after,
I'm after whatever...
I could just as easily have posted this in the "I Like Learning New Words" group. Given its meaning, however, I thought this to be the more appropriate location.It is from the Greek "epos" (word) and "-latry (worship). As can be seen from the etymology, the definition is "the...
