I Love Learning

I stumbled upon a new word today. New for me anyway.

Penultimate

ADJECTIVE

  1. last but one in a series of things; second last.
  2. “the penultimate chapter of the book”

In linguistics. The term penultimate is used in linguistics and in grammar books to refer to a particular syllable in a word: the penult or penultima. This is the second to last syllable in any word, such as “la” in “syllable”. 

What is the meaning of ‘penultimate step’?

High Jump Penultimate Step Definition. The penultimate step or penultimate stride is the second-to-last step before an athlete takes off! It’s used extensively in the long jump and high jump. Many expert coaches believe the penultimate step is part of the jumpers takeoff. 

What does the name penultimate mean?

Definition of penultimate. 1 : next to the last the penultimate chapter of a book. 2 : of or relating to the next to the last syllable of a word a penultimate accent.

Is there a word for after penultimate and ultimate?

“Properly used, penultimate means ‘next to last,’ as the penultimate game of the season and the penultimate syllable in a word. It is sometimes used incorrectly where the word ultimate is called for, especially when meaning ‘representing or exhibiting the greatest possible development or sophistication,’ as in This car is the penultimate in engineering and design .

Why is this important? I have no idea but I like it. I learned something new today. I’m pretty happy with that. Have a nice day…..and tomorrow too….

Props to good old bing…lol…maybe google is not the devil…

Abstract Love

You said I needed culture.

I said I don’t want it growing on me.

A teacher and artist,

The smartest person I’d ever met.

Yes, much older than me.

We met playing risk.

And drank all night.

I was instantly caught up in you.

We’d make love for days.

You introduced me to a different life.

The ballet, the symphony, Broadway plays.

A whirlwind romance.

You said we would never last.

Because what we had was an abstract love.

Want to Trade Lives

My life sux he said.
I’d just as soon be dead.

I replied, want to trade lives?
As he searched my eyes.

I have that power.
So don’t cower.

It’s not forever.
And I can make it all better.

How would you do that?
Oh, well I wouldn’t stand pat.

I’d open my heart.
And make a new start.

I’d smile and be happy.
And sometimes a little sappy.

I find beauty in the world.
Maybe dance in a swirl.

I’d get rid of hateful.
And be forever grateful.

For your thoughts are the key,
To your destiny!

Spiritually Connected

Feeling connected?
Well, you’ve been selected.

He came to me in a vision,
And told me of our special mission.

He said let it begin.
For it never ends.

Forget life as you know it to be.
And serve the One you can’t see.

Heaven awaits.
So walk thru the gate.

You’ll never be deselected.
If you’re spiritually connected!

I Dreamt About Having a Dream

I dreamed I dreamed of you,
It was perfect.

I was watching myself dream,
Floating like a cloud.

When all at once!
I was awake.

And I realized it was a dream.
Everything!
It had been a farce.
They began to laugh.

I smiled.
I felt silly.

Because it’s all a dream.
Or is a memory.

That one day will merge,
If you so urge.

Being a bore?
It could be a chore.

To go to your core.
And find the door.

Then, what’s it for?
Promise there will be no gore.

According to lore,
But still, there’s more.

So it’s either, or,
Will you please help the poor.

And your reward is to roar.
And of course, soar.

When the world is tore,
You will stop the war.

4 you’re the 1
it is 4
