Sunday’s Word, Week #16

March 10, 2008

This word came to me last week in a Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day email. It was so freakin‘ cool that I had to share. I’ve never heard it before and I would never have guessed its meaning.

amanuensis

noun:
A person employed to take dictation or to copy manuscripts.

    Nope! Never would have guessed! I thought it sounded like some painful woman’s condition!
