    Default Word of the Day

    I'm starting this thread because I have found my vocabulary lacking some days...and I think, surely, we all have room to learn. Please add any words that you come across that you think may be unfamiliar to some of us. Today, I saw the following word and had to look it up and so, I am sharing it in case any of you saw it and also didn't know its meaning:

    solipsism


    • : a theory in philosophy that your own existence is the only thing that is real or that can be known
    • : a theory holding that the self can know nothing but its own modifications and that the self is the only existent thing; also : extreme egocentrism


    solipsist ˈsō-ləp-sist, ˈsä-ləp-, sə-ˈlip-\ noun

    solipsistic sō-ləp-ˈsis-tik, ˌsä-\ adjective

    solipsistically ti-k(ə-)lē\ adverb

    Definition of stochastic




    • 1:random; specifically : involving a random variable stochastic process
    • 2: involving chance or probability : probabilistic stochastic model of radiation-induced mutation


    The word used in a sentence:


    Stochastic terrorism, as described by a blogger who summarized the concept several years back, means using language and other forms of communication "to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable."
    —David S. Cohen, Rolling Stone, 9 Aug. 2016

    Filial


    Definition of filial


    • 1: of, relating to, or befitting a son or daughter <filial obedience>


    • 2: having or assuming the relation of a child or offspring



    Filial is descended from Latin filius, meaning "son," and filia, meaning "daughter," and in English (where it has been used since at least the 14th century) it has always applied to both sexes. The word has long carried the dutiful sense "owed to a parent by a child," as found in such phrases as "filial respect" and "filial piety." These days it can also be used more generally for any emotion or behavior of a child to a parent

    Nidifugous


    adjective ni·dif·u·gous \nī-ˈdi-fyə-gəs\

    : leaving the nest soon after hatching

    Nidifugous hatched from the Latin words nidus, meaning "nest," and fugere, meaning "to flee." Its contrasting word nidicolous, meaning "reared for a time in a nest," combines "nidus" with the English combining form "-colous" ("living or growing in or on"). Another relevant term is "precocial." A precocial bird is capable of a high degree of independent activity as soon as it emerges from the egg. While all nidifugous birds are also necessarily precocial, some nidicolous birds are also precocial - that is, they are capable of leaving the nest soon after hatching, but instead they stick around. Other nidicolous birds are "altricial," which is to say they are hatched in a very immature and helpless condition and require care for some time.

    Seems appropriate for today: http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/social-media

    social media

    Social media is the collective of online communications channels dedicated to community-based input, interaction, content-sharing and collaboration. Websites and applications dedicated to forums,microblogging, social networking , social bookmarking, social curation, and wikis are among the different types of social media.

    Here are some prominent examples of social media:



    • Facebook is a popular free social networking website that allows registered users to create profiles, upload photos and video, send messages and keep in touch with friends, family and colleagues. According to statistics from the Nielsen Group, Internet users within the United States spend more time on Facebook than any other website.
    • Twitter is a free microblogging service that allows registered members to broadcast short posts called tweets. Twitter members can broadcast tweets and follow other users' tweets by using multiple platforms and devices.
    • Google+ (pronounced Google plus) is Google's social networking project, designed to replicate the way people interact offline more closely than is the case in other social networking services. The project’s slogan is “Real-life sharing rethought for the web.”
    • Wikipedia is a free, open content online encyclopedia created through the collaborative effort of a community of users known as Wikipedians. Anyone registered on the site can create an article for publication; registration is not required to edit articles. Wikipedia was founded in January of 2001.
