When I started wondering whether to call this another episode or edition of Words Worth Defending, I knew I had the words to include. So welcome to another episode (addition, entering beside; any part of the story, or a digression, complete in itself, of a serialized story; an incidental passage in a fugue) or edition (to put forth or publish; the size, style, or form in which a book is published).
For those of you who notice that material about books and remember that my big old dictionary actually has the words “Twentieth Century” in its title, don’t think of me as too traditional. (Traditional, yes — just not too traditional.) Thanks to the software we use at Chicago Now, when I get this piece finished, I have a button to click on — a button that’s marked Publish. So when I am ready to “”put this forth” to you, it will get published.
I like the definitions of episode — I ‘m tired of it being used only for TV shows and medicine (as in “a migraine episode”). My cello and I are going to play some episodes — if I can find “us” some suitable fugues! Off to hunt for them.
