The bestselling word calendar celebrates the love of language every day, perfect for word lovers, readers, writers, crossword buffs, and students. Here are hundreds of smart, unexpected, and useful words compiled by the editors at Merriam-Webster, America’s most-respected dictionary. The spiritual (ahimsa), the political (roorback), the 21st century (vaporware), the comical (higgledy-piggledy), the million-dollar (pachydermatous), and more. Entries include definition, pronunciation, sample sentences, word history, and miscellany: Did you know “facetious” is one of the few English words that uses the vowels “a,e,i,o,u” in order?
