Word 'O' The Day

Thought I would start a separate thread for this valuable and most edumucational service.

Here goes:

chawbacon

\CHAW-bay-kun\
<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>Click the image to open in full size.</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
noun


Meaning
<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>Click the image to open in full size.</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
: bumpkin, hick


Example Sentence
<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD>Click the image to open in full size.</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
Larry has been living in the city for almost a year, but he’s still as much of a chawbacon as the day he left the farm.

My version: Brady was nicknamed Bubba Red Beard by an FTE user who thought he looked like a chawbacon.<!-- Advertising Text Box (for Encycl. Britannica) BEGINS --><!-- Advertising Text Box (for Encycl. Britannica) ENDS -->

“Chaw” is an alteration of “chew” that is still used in some English dialects, especially in rural areas. Cured pork, or bacon, was a staple of some rural folks’ diets in the past. Since the 16th century, “chaw” has been combined with “bacon” to create a ludicrous name for an uncultured yokel. Over the centuries, the word has lent its delicious dialect flavor to a wide range of publications, but it has become less common in recent decades. Today, city dwellers are as likely as country folk to chow down on bacon, and the word “chawbacon” isn’t often on the lips of either group.

"Every tone was a testimony against slavery, and a prayer to God for deliverance from chains. The hearing of those wild notes always depressed my spirit, and filled me with ineffable sadness," wrote Frederick Douglass in his autobiography. Reading Douglass's words, it's easy to see that "ineffable" means "indescribable" or "unspeakable." And when we break down the word to its Latin roots, it's easy to see how those meanings came about. "Ineffable" comes from "ineffabilis," which joins the prefix "in-," meaning "not," with the adjective "effabilis," meaning "capable of being expressed." "Effabilis" comes from "effari" ("to speak out"), which in turn comes from "ex-" and "fari" ("to speak").

A word for that which cannot be described in words.

I finally got it. I'm ashamed (and frankly a bit disturbed) that I didn't get it earlier.

The Hebrew ancestor of the word "golem" meant "shapeless mass," and the original golems started as lumps of clay that were formed into figures and brought to life by means of a charm or a combination of letters forming a sacred word. In the Middle Ages, golems were thought to be the perfect servants; their only fault was that they were sometimes too literal or mechanical in fulfilling their masters' orders. In the 16th century, the golem was thought of as a protector of the Jews in times of persecution. But by the late 1800s, "golem" had acquired a less friendly second sense, referring to a man-made monster that inspired many of the back-from-the-dead creations of classic horror fiction.

"Litany" came to English through Anglo-French and Late Latin, and ultimately from the Greek word "litaneia," meaning "entreaty." A "litany" refers literally to a type of prayer in which a series of lines are spoken alternately by a leader and a congregation. Recent decades have seen the development of three figurative senses. The chant-like quality of a literal litany led to the "repetitive chant" sense. Next, the repetitious nature of the original litany led to the "lengthy recitation" sense. Finally, the “lengthy recitation” sense led to the meaning “a sizable series or set.”
