WotD Perfect Tweet Challenge – Week of November 26, 2012

Every week, we pose a challenge: using any word of the day from the week, create a perfect tweet, otherwise known as a twoosh. Here are our favorites from last week.

Remember that once a month we’re giving away Wordnik T-shirts to two randomly chosen players, to be announced the last Monday of the month, and as always, to get the word of the day, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, or subscribe via email.

Haruspex and sweet tooth fairy

Today’s word of the day is haruspex, which was a priest in ancient Rome who practiced divination by the inspection of the entrails of animals. It’s sometimes used in a literary fashion to refer to any person who tries to predict the future.

Today’s list of the day is Sweet Tooth Fairy, which contains three-part phrases made of two different compound words, so “sweet tooth” and “tooth fairy” combine to form “sweet tooth fairy.” It’s a great road game, too.
