Every day I get a 'word of the day' e-mail from Merriam-Webster. Lately, they haven't been all that enlightening. For example, today's word:
Word of the Day
: too evident to be doubted : unquestionable
Not only do we all already know the meaning of this word but more importantly it has no practical use. WHO uses that word whose name is NOT Sherlock Holmes?? Seriously? Seriously?
Thanks, but no thanks, Mr. Webster.
Update: Thanks to the commenters, I will acknowledge that indubitable is a word used by some and most certainly 'indubitably' is used by such greats as The Simpsons. However, I will refrain from accepting that indubitable is a word worthy of a word-of-the-day. I'll take the likes of primogeniture over indubitable any day.
