Happy new day and new week friends! What a glorious sunshine-y Monday!
Mondays are usually thought of as the least favourite day of the week. While the majority of people dislike Mondays, this day can really be the preferred day of the week.
Today is National Thesaurus Day. - Big deal you say? Did you know?
“Research shows that if we start a new project or set a new personal or professional goal on Monday, we are more likely to follow through. According to another study, we are more motivated at the beginning of a period, like the morning, Monday.”
Roget’s Thesaurus is known to be one of the most widely used reference books worldwide. It was published in 1852 and the book has never gone out of publication.
After his retirement from a successful medical career, (Peter Mark Roget 1779 - 1869) he spent the rest of his life working on “Roget’s Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases.” Do you know why he made word lists? It’s believed this was a way for him to combat depression and mental illness.
Using a Thesaurus is an excellent way to increase your vocabulary and help you to become a better writer. As an avid reader, writer and learner; a Thesaurus is one of my favourite reference books.
You can opt for a hard copy, download an app to your device or bookmark a website. You will notice that your writing and vocabulary improves when you regularly refer to a Thesaurus.
For you #icy - a few games & word apps available on the App Store:
You will also find games in the Merriam Webster website dropdown menu.
Do you read/use a Thesaurus? Or Thesauri? Yes, that is a word. It is the plural form of Thesaurus and is traditionally published in print form and are now more widely available and used online.
I believe in and support education/learning/study/literacy/teaching/training/schooling/improvement and knowledge locally, and internationally in Guatemala and Paraguay.
What are your thoughts on learning and education?
Do you enjoy games? For fun or for learning? Both?
