Word of the Week: inkhorn

Book ClubI’m reading all about the new Baylor University football stadium. Have you started reading Beating Goliath? If not, go here.

Howdy, Word Lovers! Last week’s WOW (Word of the Week) was truckle. Merriam-Webster defines truckle as: to act in a subservient manner or to submit. If so, then I’m truckling tonight as I start on a brand new venture. Yes, you’ll probably hear about it here sometime.

Today’s WOW is inkhorn. Why do I have a feeling that some of you know this one???

inkhorn: (ˈiŋk-ˌhrn) 1. writing with a cow horn 2. when a unicorn is drawn in a children’s book 3. when a publisher is called on the telephone

Are you one of the people that knows inkhorn? If so, send me the definition (or a guess) here.
