What's the problem with this word? Regurgitation?

Nobody much "gurgitates", so it makes little sense to say that a person re-gurgitates, when they haven't gurgitated in the first place.

PS: This is my six hundreth post on AWAD since arriving here a little over 37 months ago. Might we have the smallest (but nonetheless sincere) fanfare, please?

HA. Do you realize this is the only place in the world where we'd like a little fanfare when we become an addict?

Congrats FS.

I'd comment on this, but something keeps coming up.

Ta-daaaaa! Welcome to your addicthood, padre. You are now eligible to join Wordaholicals Synonymous. We meet online and before you can fully join the group, you have to admit "I'm a wordaholical!". Only then can you get it really bad ...

Congratulations Father. Perhaps you could design a special service of prayer and thanksgiving for these important milestones.

I can see it now:

~The Missa Etymologica.
~Rosaries with the letters of the alphabet engraved on the beads.
~A Litany for Logophiles.
~Versicles for Verbivores.
~The Supplication of the Sesquipedalians.

Well done, well done indeed. Tell me, though, is there is an ethical dilemma attached to a priest/judge who has an addiction problem?

We got the word wholesale from the Medieval Latins and they gurgitated up a storm whenever they felt like it. Incidentally, the re- in this word is not acting in its role as a repeater but as an intensifier.

You mean, if you're gonna gurgitate, then you better gurgitate intensely?

(Congratulations on your attainment of addict status, FS.)
