...all ten fingers at the ready?
More like you were on your back lying about using your fingers to text, you preeevert.
You gotta use your thumbs in that position.
Pedagogical - relating to teaching.
I tried to google if the word sounds more as British or as American but could not see how to tell.
usher from ''usherette''?
I think it is american. The idea of selling food in the cinemas is american I believe.
The same with the word ''launderette''.
I grew up using that word and I'm American, if that helps?
Today I learned the word downwelling. It means "[an] accumulation and sinking of higher density material beneath lower density material, such as cold or saline water beneath warmer or fresher water or cold air beneath warm air," but I picked it up from a phrase in an article.
"...a downwelling of light..."
It sorta captivated me.
Guess I found a new hobby, guys!
"To usher someone to their seat" = to show them where they're expected to sit. Never heard of katina's "usherette," sounds like an outmoded gendering of the job of usher to me. We had ushers in church when I was growing up, they'd give you the program/schedule of the service. I went to a live music/art show (Blue Man Group) recently with reserved seating and the usher took us to our seats.
Obsequious - obedient or attentive to an excessive or servile degree.
Spake - past of speak.
First time I heard that before...
