I love words

11 May

Today I heard someone use the word bailiwick. Awesome right? Of course I had no idea what it meant.  No matter though. I immediately fell in love with both the word and the person who used it — because really, how could you not love a person who uses the word bailiwick?

bail·i·wick [bey-luh-wik]

noun

1. the district within which a bailie or bailiff has jurisdiction.
2. a person’s area of skill, knowledge, authority, or work: to confine suggestions to one’s own bailiwick.
Words are great.
