Wednesday Groaners

WORD for YOUR WEEK: Since my posts are sporadic, let's find out where that word came from. It describes something that is occasional, or occurs in scattered instances. As in, "even after the battle, sounds of sporadic gunfire could still be heard." It comes from the Greeks, where the word "spora" meant sowing, as in the act of tossing seed onto the ground in irregular intervals. (Sidebar: you can also see from where we get the word "spore.") This became "sporadikos," meaning scattered.
