Word of the Week: calumny

Good morning, Word Nerds! Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was anabasis. No one had a guess for anabasis, so let’s find out what Merriam-Webster says about the definition:

  1. a going or marching up as in a military advance

  2. a difficult and dangerous military retreat

Let me guess: the battle of the Little Big Horn was a bit of an anabasis for Custer.

This week’s WOW is calumny. Here are my guesses for its definition:

calumny (ˈka-ləm-nē) 1. column-y 2. like Callum 3. a quandary created by Californians

What’s your guess about calumny. Submit a comment below this post!
