Word of the Week: Quibbleism

Considered a lost word, quibbleism is just another excellent example of my humanoids behavior.  According to a lovely new site we stumbled across, The Phrontisrey, it seems the term quibbleism was used in 1836.

This one shouldn’t be too difficult to deduce since the root is quibble.

The practice of quibbling.

”Not to sound like I’m arguing, but I really must insist that it is you whom constantly quibbles about this and that.”

Readers, you see!  Doesn’t it sound like she is interjecting an inconsequential complaint?  Doesn’t that sound like a quibble to you?

This week add the word, not the deed please!
