    As the title suggests, this is an exciting new game called dictionary. I thought it might be good to learn a few new words.

    Here's A DICTIONARY for you.

    I will start with :

    frog spit
    n.

    A foamlike aggregation of small aquatic plants, such as green algae, on the surface of a pond. Also called frog spittle.

    :D :D :D

    Amateur is derived from the Latin word for love (amo, amas, amat and so forth). Therefore, the true meaning of "amateur" is someone who engages in an art, a science, a study, or sport FOR THE LOVE OF IT.

    It is unfortunate that we have come to use the word "amateur" to denote those who are less competent. The fact that a person is an amateur does not necessarily mean that s/he is less competent than a professional. In point of fact, amateurs are often MORE competent than professionals. To wit, even during those times when he was an amateur, Tiger Woods was arguably THE best golfer in the world.
