While using the twitterfon application on my brand new iphone (<— MOST PRETENTIOUS BEGINNING TO A BLOG ENTRY EVER!!!), I discovered a new word. You see, twitter can be useful!
See the twitterfon app uses autofill on some commonly used words. Much like many word processing programs you start to type in a word and it suggests the finished word for you. For instance, if I type in “dou” it may suggest the completed word “douche”. This also works for misspelled words on occasion.
I began writing to a friend who had just insulted me. I simply wanted to reply “whatever nigga” (Don’t judge me. We talk street talk when we are insulting eachother.). As I typed in “nigga” I noticed twitterfon had suggested another word.
Did you mean “niggardly“?
For a moment I looked at the phone in bewilderment. I had never heard this term before. Could “niggardly” really be a real word? I rushed over to dictionary.com to take a look.
|1.||reluctant to give or spend; stingy; miserly.|
|2.||meanly or ungenerously small or scanty: a niggardly tip to a waiter.|
|in the manner of a niggard.|
