I subscribe to A Word A Day and often learn new words. Yesterday the word was chiral, a new word for me. Oddly, I remember when and where I was when I learned certain words as a child. I remember when I learned osmosis and impermeable. New words these days merely fall into a big vat and become part of the mix. I don’t recall each one with distinction. The vocabulary muscle in my brain seethes in a bubbling cauldron of words, prefixes, suffixes, and roots all mixed up with Latin, French, Spanish, and German. It’s a mess in there.
