Word of the Day
Wednesday, August 31, 2011



metaphrastic
\met-uh-FRAST-ik\ , adjective;


1.

Having the quality of a literary work that has been translated or changed from one form to another, as prose into verse.


Quotes:



In a word, the whole place was involved in the maze of a metaphrastic mystery; it enchanted our wanderers, and tempted them into fields of speculation.

-- Arthur Edward Waite, Belle and the Dragon


By this maneuver, the mind is protected from clutter - mind and body, separated out, are actually coerced into a negatively metaphrastic liaison.

-- Lesley Stern, The Smoking Book


Origin:

Metaphrastic comes into English from the medieval Greek metaphrastes, "one who translates."





To day this word stumpped me. I could not get in my mind how to visualize this word being used. I've read it several times and still could not come up with a sentence that made since. Yes, I see the quotes, confusion, cluttered mind, maze but, it still blew my mind today, Wow my mind was blow. I'm sure many of you are use this word everyday. This one was a good one for me. Hey thanks for reading my blog.
