Word of the week

October 7, 2009
Traer Star-Clipper

by Shayne Weber

Today there are many words people use and they do not know the words have different meanings. Especially today, with all of the American slang terms used through out the states. Many nouns are also verbs, even some colors are also verbs, like blue and purple. A word many people use today, and a word many people are called is husband.

Husband: (Huhz-buhnd): to manage prudently and economically: conserve.

The normal husband term all people know is a married man, but the word husband originated from Old English hus-bonda "master of a house." Many women and some men may infer this term is somewhat sexist or masculine. Many people would be surprised how many words people use and don't even know what the word actually means. In the spirit of knowledge, just one more word for this week.

Wife: (Wif): a married woman considered in relation to her husband./ A woman, esp. an old or uneducated one.
