Some of the words are a bit lack luster, but the facts about them are unique and fun to learn.

I look forward to my new word every day. I am even kind of compulsive about not cheating and looking ahead to the next day’s word. The etymologies are interesting and thorough, often with a wry or humorous slant.
Be sure to get this brand though. There are others on the market that fall way short of what PAGE-A-DAY CALENDAR offers. This calendar also emails you a free daily screen shot from pretty much any of their calendars if you submit the code from within your calendar with a request for that feature.

Good. A lot of common words though. Wish they were more obscure.
Spruce up your vocabulary day by day with obscure sports terms (sclaff), words derived from other languages (frisson), contemporary buzz words (freegan), highbrow lingo that will impress your most bookish friends (Apollonian), and words that are just plain fun to say (hoity- toity).
In addition to pronunciation and definition, each entry provides a fascinating word history and a sample sentence. From the editors of Merriam-Webster, America’s most respected dictionary, 365 New Words-A-Year is a verbose language lover’s dream: a great gift for writers, readers, crossword and Scrabble buffs.

The Page-A-Day calendar with an incredible 7 million copies sold.
We have had similar calendars and enjoyed making a game of trying to use the wacky word-of-the-day in conversation. I’m looking forward to cracking open a new calendar on January 1 and….the first word is “bravado”.
Really? Not an exotic word, but maybe it gets better? Nope. I flipped through the rest of the calendar and it is filled with a similar level of words, eg. “mettlesome”, “urbane”, and “liaison”. There were only one or two words per month that were new to me.
The average adult who enjoys reading, crossword puzzles and/or reads at the college level will probably find little that is new. On the other hand, an English language-learner or a younger person who enjoys words may like this calendar.
If it was marketed differently it could be a 4-star product. Although it wasn’t to my liking, others might enjoy it so I would have given it a three-star rating, but there are some quality issues. The pages are quite thin and the paper at the top of the block peeled up when I tore off the first few cover pages.
I was able to glue it back down and will be donating this calendar to a high school librarian for use at the reference desk.
Great aid for my ESL tutee who is entering high school in early August. Since his ESL teachers and aides only spoke Spanish with him, he is woefully behind in his English communication skills. I did not learn English until kindergarten, but quickly assimilated and acclimated to English.
I am very hopeful that my tutee will broaden his English vocabulary and enhance his English oral and written skills.

I get one every year – nice to learn new words. However, the past few years do not have very difficult words like previous editions.
I purchased to assist my spouse in the expansion of his vocabulary prowess so that we may engage in more sophisticated conversations….They unfortunately do not make a calendar that aids in listening ability or comprehension so I think this is all for naughtAt least the calendar âpretendsâ to listen to me when I speak to it so I give it 5 stars
Not sure what people are refering to when they said that the words being used are too easy. I love this and the people at work also are getting a kick out of it because one of the gentlemen come over every morning to converse about the word of the day.
EX: word of the day today is Osentatious: “marked by or fond of conspicuous or vainglorious and somethimes pretentious display”. I dont know about you but that word is difficult enough for me.
My husband loves your calendars. I order the new one each Christmas. A must for him!
Some versions of the Zoroastrian calendar also use a fixed length of 365 days with no rule for leap days, despite potential leap year rules being acknowledged by the 9th century at the latest. In particular, of the versions still in use today the Qadimi version does not have any form of leap rule; the Shahanshahi version had one leap month added in the 12th century but no leap years since, while the Fasli version (introduced in the 20th century) adds one day every four years.
I’ve been going through a number of years with “365 New Word-a-Year.” It’s fun to learn new words and to realize how many words I already know.Friends who stop by also enjoy the “test” to see if they know the word for the day. This is great fun!
Some Mesoamerican calendars used a 365-day year with no leap year, resulting in a gradual shift of the seasons relative to the calendar. This includes the Maya Haab’ and the Aztec Xiuhpohualli calendars.
Are we born creative? I believe we create creativity through practice. Are you willing to give it a try? I did. It worked. It worked wonders.
Superb way to expand your vocabulary. You get one to two new words a day. They even give the history behind the word.
