From January 1's crambazzled (an old Yorkshire term indicating premature aging due to excessive drinking) to December 31's kalopsia (a newfangled word for a state in which all looks beautiful), Word Perfect offers a delightful morsel of linguistic brilliance for every day of the year. Even the most devoted logophiles will enjoy encountering new words— such as firgun (joy in someone's success) and scurryfunge (to frantically clean the house before company arrives)—as well to learning the surprising origins of more familiar terms (Do you know the relationship between feisty and flatulence?). Prepare to wow friends and family with your expanded and significantly more colorful vocabulary!
