Every day the Complete and Total Loser gets a word a day from dictionary.com. There will be several days in a row when the words are simple ones, but then there will be many days when they're words he's never heard in his life. Words like taradiddle, rident, garboil, and adret. His spellchecker flags these words.
Today's word is philology and its designation as "obsolete" made the Loser shake his head sadly and smile.
