I had to think long and hard to find my favorite “N” word. It didn’t just come to me like with other letters.

I was happy to come up with the word “Neighborhood” :

  • an area within a city or town that has some distinctive features (especially one forming a community); “an ethnic neighborhood”
  • A neighborhood or neighbourhood (see spelling differences) is a geographically localized community within a larger city, town or suburb. Neighborhoods are often social communities with considerable face-to-face interaction among members.
And thinking about the word neighborhood I got these long ago memories of Mr. Rogers and his song: “Won’t you be my neighbor?”.
Do you have favorite “N” words?

Another favorite is: Joy  a feeling or state of great delight or happiness; keen pleasure; elation.

Info about the letter “I”: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I

My favorite “I” word is Imagination and Imagination is actually one of my favorite words in the dictionary.

I was a teacher for many, many years and the kids knew that when I pointed to my head I meant: “Use your Imagination“.

Imagination:

  • The faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses:   “a vivid imagination”.
  • The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.

Would love some more “I” words!

“E” for Exquisite

I have been learning many new things about “Letters” as I do my alphabet letters.

This is what I learned about the letter “E“:

The letter “E” is one of the most versatile letters in the English alphabet!  (See – we’ve already used it!)  It is the most commonly used letter in no less than eleven languages. “E” is derived from the Greek letter Epsilon, which was used for many of the same purposes as the letter that we use today. Due to the Great Vowel Shift—a mysterious change in pronunciation in the English language—the letter is pronounced in two varieties: long (such as in the word bee) and short (like in the word bell). Every educated English student must examine for etymology (that is, history) and exercise (that is, use)!

The word I chose for “E” is “Exquisite” meaning “Of extreme beauty” “Delicately beautiful” “Lavishly elegant and refined”

Would love to see what words you choose. Leve them down in the “Reply / Comments” area.

Happy Friday my friends! Great weekend to all!
