This semester has been crazy and clearly I have not been posting very much. So this is me trying to be optimistic. I am going to start posting word of the day’s from the readings that I have to do for my classes. There are always words that I do not know the exact definition for, and therefore this will be a great way for me to improve my vocabulary and post on a regular basis. I really hope this works.
Todays word comes from Mina Loy’s poem, The Black Virginity.
The word of the day comes from the second line of the poem:
“On green sward”
sward, n. Usually with defining phr. of the earth, etc.: The surface or upper layer of ground usually covered with herbage.
(This definition came from the OED)
