Word of the Week: vernissage

Dictionary --Word of the Week

The Word of the Week for last week was tutelary. Tutelary means having the guardianship of a person or a thing. So, Liesa’s guess last week was pretty close, stating that she thought it had to do with tutelage. Surely a good guardian or parent does tutelage on a regular basis. My guesses, as usual, warrant asking whether anyone ever parented or guarded me.

This week’s word is vernissage. No fair cheating, even if it is April Fool’s Day. Please submit your guesses below or send an email to me via the Contact Page.

vernissage: (ver-ni-ˈsäzh) 1. a horse named Vern doing dressage. 2. a French word for sage 3. springtime sausage 4. French vernacular (I might even be semi-serious about this one.)
