Paul’s Awesome English Dictionary – Today’s Word, Lockiness

Sometimes words come about gradually. You hear them for a while before noticing and adopting them into your vocabularly. Sometimes your work or studies require you to coin a new word so as to avoid using a sentence over and over when the new bon mot will do quite nicely. And then sometimes, the world suddenly gives birth to a glorious, brilliant, and beautiful new word just as the Greek god Zeus gave birth to the wise, powerful, and beautiful goddess Athena by pulling her out of his split-open head.*

* = A painful birth, you bet.
