Morning Exercise 7-8-14: Word “Diffuse”

Start with the word of the day from the New York Times.

 

diffuse •\di-ˈfyüs\• adjective and verb

adjective: spread out; not concentrated in one place
adjective: lacking conciseness
adjective: (of light) transmitted from a broad light source or reflected
verb: move outward
verb: spread through
verb: cause to become widely known

 

Now free-associate.

 

Oh, English.

How does anyone ever learn this crazy language?

“Stand back! It’s a bomb!”

“Quick, someone di-ˈfyüs it!”

Huh? “Okay. If you insist …”

Boom.
