Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day
Wednesday, October 18th extol Praiseworthy Word of the Day:
This 15th-century verb has become wonderfully forgiving in modern times because most dictionaries admit two spellings: the original one, which you see here, and the more English-friendly extoll (owing to toll and perhaps to the completely unrelated atoll). While you can extol (that is, praise) just about anything or anyone, the things most likely to be extolled in these modern times are "virtues" and "benefits."
