What's in a word??

Lots of things! Even one word can be powerful! Did you know the first Dictionary of the English Language, one of the most influential dictionaries in the history of the English language, was prepared by Samuel Johnson and published on April 15, 1755 ? Thats pretty old!!!

word (wʉrd):
a speech sound, or series of them, serving to communicate meaning and consisting of at least one base morpheme with or without prefixes or suffixes; unit of language between the morpheme and the sentence
a letter or group of letters representing such a unit of language, written or printed usually in solid or hyphenated form

Have you ever heard the expression "I am at a loss for words" ? Well, thats because words are the meaning in our lives! Wars have started over nothing more than words spoken! Here are a few great items from ETSY sellers with words of all kinds :o)
