I just learned the word "paling." It means a fence with pointed wooden or metal stakes.

Seems like a pretty simple word and yet I never heard of it before!

Have you come across any new words lately? Help us grow our vocabularies!

I suspect you've both heard it before, in a different form: think of the word "impaling."

I learned more about the difference between being a psychopath and being psychotic. I had previously thought they were similar. (No personal experience involved, fortunately.)

I remember the palings at Rosings Park because I had to look the word up.

When they left the high-road for the lane to Hunsford, every eye was in search of the Parsonage, and every turning expected to bring it in view. The palings of Rosings Park was their boundary on one side. Elizabeth smiled at the recollection of all that she had heard of its inhabitants.

At length the Parsonage was discernable. The garden sloping to the road, the house standing in it, the green pales and the laurel hedge, everything declared that they were arriving. Mr. Collins and Charlotte appeared at the door, and the carriage stopped at a small gate, which led by a short gravel walk to the house, amidst the nods and smiles of the whole party. In a moment they were all out of the chaise, rejoicing at the sight of each other. Mrs. Collins welcomed her friend with the liveliest pleasure, and Elizabeth was more and more satisfied with coming, when she found herself so affectionately received.

I love words. I get different "word of the day" emails from various dictionaries. I also belong to Toastmasters and every meeting someone is in the Grammarian role. The Grammarian introduces a word, and we each try to work it into our presentation or speaking role.

We have Captivate displays in the elevators at work and today the word of the day was parergon.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

When are women going to face the fact that they donít know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?
