Next Week: We love the Language

It's Saturday. Time for the SCOOP on what's coming up next week. We had a great time DVD'ing in the Rain with you all. Read over our movie chatter if you get a chance. My three-for-the-price of one movie review of Jane Austen's EMMA is below.

Next week, we turn our focus to language.

Pronunciation: \ˈlaŋ-gwij, -wij\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French langage, from lange, langue tongue, language, from Latin lingua
Date: 14th century
the words, their pronunciation, and the methods of combining them used and understood by a community : audible, articulate, meaningful sound as produced by the action of the vocal organs : a systematic means of communicating ideas or feelings by the use of conventionalized sign, sounds, gestures, or marks having understood meanings : Hey, the list goes on.

Writers love language much the way painters love pigment.

Next Week:
Sunday Devotional:
Dina Sleiman

Monday: Niki Turner

Tuesday: Jillian Kent hosts

Wednesday: Lisa Karon Richardson

Thursday: Anita Mae Draper hosts

Friday: Wenda Dottridge
