The OED's Word of the Day is always welcome in my email inbox, and now I think I'll also be taking a look at Vocab Rehab, offered up from the good folks at Mental Floss. Each word comes with a pronunciation guide and a few sentences where the word is used in context. I'm pleased to announce that I now know what a charabanc is (a sight-seeing motor coach) and that I'm quite the Tom Wolfe votary (a devoted admirer). Enjoy!
