Don't know what 'limn' means? Look it up

September 08, 2010

I enjoyed yesterday's paper with a "new" word in an article's headline ("Opposing votes limn difference in race," Sept. 7), even though at first I wondered if it was a typo. I'd like to think I have a good vocabulary, but that word prompted me to look it up in the dictionary. I then shared the definition with my husband (who really thinks he has a good vocabulary!) and with my two elementary school-aged kids. I think it's great that The Sun challenged us with vocabulary and provided a good way for me demonstrate a skill to my kids that I talk much about — looking up definitions.
