Word of the day

Cathart, a verb, and many thanks to Professor Geoff Scott from UWS, who used the word this morning at the Workshop on Learning Leaders in Times of Change as smoothly and naturally as if it were already in broad common use. Maybe Geoff invented it, maybe not. It appears on the language creation website with the following definition. I am surprised that such a useful word isn't used a great deal more.

cathart v. catharting, catharted [Back formation <>

Hey, I recently added a news widget from www.widgetmate.com to my blog. It shows the latest news, and just took a copy and paste to implement. Might interest you too.
