Today's word is actually very ironic given it's meaning. The word is Gammicism and it means:
Having difficulty or being unable to pronounce the letters 'g' or 'k'
It's kind of funny that the word starts with the same letter those afflicted by it cannot pronounce. These type of people have a disability and they can't even name it.
Along similar lines, have you ever thought about how you would describe an orange's color to someone who was born blind or who has never seen the color orange? Imagine for example, an alien race that only sees in black and white. What do you say?
Okay, I drifted off track for a moment, but it's just one of things that makes you think. Just looking at the word Gammicism makes me think of some kind of religious sect that worship nuclear explosions. Like the mutated humans in Beneath The Planet Of The Apes. Maybe they were actually followers of a different definition of Gammicism - nuclear missile worship.
Oh, and if you didn't check out yesterday's word, it got a great deal of attention. Just goes to show you how a slight difference in spelling catches everyone's eye.
So what does this G word make you think of?
