To help keep my GRE vocabulary separate from the vocabulary of the Ancient Romans, I began writing every word from my study guide into a little red notebook. I included words that I had no idea what they meant, words I had heard before, but was unsure of the exact definition, and words that I knew, but wanted to solidify in my head.

After I took the GREs, I decided we had gotten too close for me to just dump the LRN. So, for the last couple of years (I can't put a number on it or I'll cry at how long ago college was), I have continued to write down words I come across that stump or intrigue me. Hit the jump for this week's WoW!
When divine inspiration hasn't struck for WoW, I consult my LRN. There are nearly 70 pages of words with cryptic notes and a color-coding that I sometimes forget the meaning of, especially when I haven't opened the book in a few weeks (or months). Today's WoW is from page 16 of the LRN:
1. rustic and pastoral
2. characteristic of rural areas and their inhabitants
This is a great word for the city mice out there to describe their country mouse friend.
