This week marks Wordsmith's septennial. Seven years ago, on March 14, 1994,
we mailed our first word to a group of friends. Today's AWAD is being emailed
to 400,000 linguaphiles in more than 195 countries. Seven years after we set
off on our mission to share with others our love for the music and magic of
words, we are still captivated by the sound and stories of words.

To mark the anniversary, we'll revisit a few words about words that have
evoked tremendous response from the world's linguaphiles. You are welcome
to share your original examples illustrating these words on the bulletin
board here. We'll compile them in a mailing next week.

To have fun with musical mondegreens, check out this site: www.kissthisguy.com

It contains countless mondegreens from songs, most of them very funny. The site is named for the famous Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze mondegreen, " 'Scuse me while I kiss the sky". Or did he sing, " 'Scuse me while I kiss this guy"?

I searched diligently for the promised list of words, but was unable to find it. If anyone else found it, how about posting its location.
