Hmm. I really didn't know what on earth he was thinking when he wrote all those messages, so I was going to reproduce them...well, before I went and looked at this anyway. So now I know what it was about. It was about certain people being bored and lacking in updating material while I was asleep.

Do All Lawyers Participate in Logomachy?

logomachy (n. loh-GAH-muh-kee)

1 : a dispute over or about words

2 : a controversy marked by verbiage

It doesn't take much to start people arguing about words, but there's no quarrel about the origin of logomachy. It comes from the Greek roots logos, meaning word or speech, and machesthai, meaning to fight, and it entered English in the mid-1500s. If you're a word enthusiast, you probably know that logos is the root of many an English word (monologue, neologism, logic, and most words ending in -logy, for example), but what about other derivatives of machesthai? Actually, this is a tough one even for word whizzes. Only a few very rare English words come from machesthai. Here are two of them: heresimach (an active opponent of heresy and heretics) and naumachia (an ancient Roman spectacle representing a naval battle).

I don't know, I obviously don't have anything to say either if I was going to steal that whole one-sided conversation, so I suppose I should go to work now instead. It's probably a good idea. Oh, I had to watch this thing on NAFTA for a class last night that was on PBS. It was pretty interesting. And Chapter 11 sucks. I suppose that getting that stricken or changed would be impossible now too. Damn lobbyist lawyers.
