WORD FOR WEDNESDAY

Word: non sequitur

Come on, this one is kind of Easy-smeezy but give a guess, come on try your hand at it - without googling it first.

Then come back around 3:00 pm to see the answer.

I LOVE the cartoon Non Sequitur! I think literally it means, does not follow. A comment, following a conversation that doesn't make sense, that's illogical.

All I can think of is non sequence so it would be something out of sequence?

Kelly said...

I was thinking along the same lines as Christina...something not sequential...

I'm glad you posted this word...I only know of it in context (like people saying it to me "that was a non seqhoweveryouspellit")

But from what I understand...it means going off on a tangent or "that came out of left feild" Throwing something into the mix that doesn't exactly fit. Though I can see how it fits.

A crit partner said that about the ending to one of my pb mss when I first started writing and subbing. And I was down in the dumps because I'd already sent it in for a conference ms review.

It ended up with a big editor who LOVED THE SURPRISE ENDING!

I think I need to pull that ms out again!!!

Kim --- can you tell me how to pronounce it?

Thanks for playing along gals.

Angela: It's pronounced: Non Sec-wah-ter

Rena: Thanks! I'm going to hop on over there - got bunnies on the brain.
