Nugatory: I have found my new favorite word, today’s Dictionary.com Word of the Day: Nugatory. It’s from the Latin word, nugatorus (to trifle):
nugatory NOO-guh-tor-ee; NYOO-, adjective:
1. Trifling; insignificant; inconsequential.
2. Having no force; inoperative; ineffectual.
can think of so many ways to use it. Heck, it almost sounds like slang
– You’re so nugatory! What a nug! I feel so nugatory today. Man, what a nugatory first round draft pick!
Where has this word been all my life?
Best of all, I think it will make a great Technorati tag for posts like this one.
