Word of the Week #35

Status: No, I didn't forget about my Word of the Week
Song: "Black and White" by Sarah McLaughlin

phrontistery - [fron-tis-teree] - noun

Definition: An establishment for study and learning.

Usage: I've always thought the home should be as much a phrontistery as school.

*I got this word from a super-fun website called The Phrontistery. It has lists of obscure, crazy words, and a Compendium of Lost Words like aquabib (water-drinker), celeberrimous (very or most highly celebrated), nubivagant (moving throughout or among clouds), and oporopolist (fruit-seller). Theoretically, I could study vocabulary words to make sure people have no idea what I'm saying! *rubbing hands together in glee*

Yeah, I know. I'm such a nerd.
