This week’s word is brought to you by Lady Deathwhisper and Christie Golden’s Arthas: Rise of the Lich King.

ken

\ken\, noun:

Knowledge, understanding, or cognizance; mental perception.

Example: “Through our master all things are possible! His power is without limit, and his will unbending! Those who oppose him will be destroyed utterly! And those who serve, who serve wholly, unquestioningly, with utter devotion of mind and soul? Elevated! To heights beyond your ken!” ~ Lady Deathwhisper

WoW Word of the Week: doughty

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

I picked this word because I think it’s funny how similar doughty meaning fearless and brave is to doughy meaning soft and flabby.  Hehe!

doughty

/DOW-tee/, adjective:

Marked by fearless resolution; valiant; brave.

Example: Twenty-five doughty fighters stood with weapons ready… waiting for Keal’thas to stop going on and on and just let them kill him!
