A couple of words

This is a frivolous post.

Yesterday I was working with a colleague on a poster presentation and I used the word nascent. He didn't know it, but he does now.

Later I blogged over on the AANRO blog and used the word maven to describe Neil Godfrey and a couple of people in the office didn't know that word.

Strangely, the wikipedia page contains the word nascent.

Which reminded me of the time I was working as a tech writer. I put the word extensible in my CV, but the agent I was working for said that's not a proper word and made me take it out. Subsequently I went on to make my fortune doing XML.
