    I need help remembering a word...

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by D-Doc, Nov 16, 2011.

    I remember the definition a little. I think it means a midnight watch or guard duty, or a midnight expedition or something. I can't remember the damn word though, but I think someone should get it pretty quick, even though the definition might be a bit off. It is only one word.

    Well, I remembered the word. It's vigil. I was a little bit off but close enough.

    lol..glad to hear you have.
    there has got to be a way of remembering word maybe the word should say what it means..like night is self descriptive if not a good way is to give them an accrostic definition that should link them to describe the word.
    VIGIL
    the lette N should be there to indicate night
    the letter C for candle should be there
    or a W should be there to indicate wacth..
    I reckon this how one could invent new words to mean something..letters that make the words should evoke the image it conveys.
    thank you for this thread..it made me think:p
