My Word Lists
Lexeme is a minimal unit in a language to which meaning can be assigned. I like the idea of getting at the root of word meanings, and I like the sound of lexeme.
Least Favorite Word:
Sesquipedalian means "long" or "polysyllabic." The Latin roots mean "a foot and a half long." I don't like long words because I believe they often contribute to misunderstandings.
