Word of the Day #1 - Ubiquitous

Welcome to The Letterbug's Word of the Day! There are some words in the English language that are nifty, or interesting, or weird, or just fun to have rolling from your tongue. Whichever category they fall into, I thought it would be fun to share a few of these words with you.

I won't be so brazen as to suggest that I will be posting a new word every day - it would just never happen. However, when the planets align and I find a spare 5 minutes in my day, I promise to devote them to finding you a 'Word of the Day'. Okay?

So here we go...

Word of the Day #1:

Ubiquitous [u·biq·ui·tous] adj. Being or seeming to be everywhere, or in all places, at the same time; omnipresent.

This word just looks so handsome, and could do with being used a whole lot more often. See if you can casually throw it into a sentence or two today - I dare you!

EG: "Mosquitos have become an ubiquitous presence on Grammar's porch just after sunset this year. Alas!"

Until next time...
