    Word of the Week: AGOG

    Styxx has suggested our new word for the week:

    AGOG
    \A*gog'\

    Agog means:
    1. Full of keen anticipation or excitement; eager.
    2. full of intense interest or excitement

    Some people seem agog over the release of the new Steinway.

    Thanks Styxx for this week's word.

    And feel free to volunteer some of your favorite words for the next Word of the Week.

    Gary

    Previous Words of the Week: ALACRITY, BORBORYGMI, RECALCITRANT, TRANSMOGRIFY, BODACIOUS, THAUMATURGICALl, SWIMMINLY, WOOLGATHERING, WINDBROACH, SINECURE, NOMOPHOBIA; GASP

    I'm agog that Garritan has found no words that begin with 'G'.

    If you are only somewhat "full of keen anticipation or excitement,"
    are you then a demagog(ue)?

    Funny....just seeing it triggered Odd Ogg. A '60's toy I had. It even brought the music to the ads forward. Strange the way the mind stores things and what my melon chooses to keep.
