Back to school...

It's Monday, so it's time to put your glasses on, polish the apple and get scholarly.. and stuff. That is if you're a student and yo have classes today. Some people just have to work.. and others (not entirely unlike me) are going to write a lazy blog post about words.

Today's word o' the day is:

majuscule: of letters written either as capitals or uncials.
Used in such contexts as...
The letter c is chiefly remarkable for the fact of there being two distinct majuscule forms, the more archaic of which is almost exclusively used to represent the numeral.
kay.. so what exactly is an uncial then? Let's look it up..
uncial: designating, written in, or pertaining to a form of majuscule writing having a curved or rounded shape and used chiefly in Greek and Latin manuscripts from about the 3rd to the 9th century a.d.
Right..

Well, it seems that majuscule is considered a spelling mistake, so maybe it isn't even a real word.

I can't think of anything to say. Mind you, I'm not at my best at the moment, being poorly and all. Uncials and Majuscules... well I never!

Oh dear! I'm sorry to hear that..

well.. to be fair, there isn't a whole lot to say about this lazy filler post, though I'm sure if you weren't poorly you'd still find plenty to wittily observe about it :)

Witty? Hahaha! You're such a kind girl.
