Word of the Week

September 30, 2009
Traer Star-Clipper

New Weekly Feature by Shayne Weber

Irony (iruh-ne)n., pl. nies.

1. The use of words to convey the opposite of their literal meaning. 2. An expression or utterance intended meaning.

Serena Williams, who recently walked off the U.S. Open Court on September 12, 2009, is currently having her novel published. On The Line, Serena's novel is a great example of irony. Serena Williams was disqualified from the U.S. Open Semifinal match against Kim Clijsters for a foot fault. Williams served and the line judge called a fault, because her foot crossed the line before she served. Williams refused and argued the line judge's call, having her disqualified, granting Clijsters a win and possible putting Serena Williams career on the line.
