Word Nerd, Word of the Day – Terrific

Terrific is one of those words, you know, the ones we use every day, often not even knowing what they were originally used for. I didn’t always know, but I’ve been keeping a list since I was a kid. I would read dictionaries in my free time, weird? Say’s you, or maybe the person next to you. Whatever, I still do it. So did David Bowie, he was quoted as saying, “Don’t you love the Oxford Dictionary? When I first read it, I thought it was a really really long poem about everything.” and it kind of is.
