Word to the Wise: Abecedarian

An “abecedarian” (ay-bee-see-DARE-ee-un) – from the first four letters of the alphabet – is someone who is learning the alphabet. Thus, a beginner in any field.

Example (as used by Lisa Jo Sagolla in Back Stage magazine): “While much of the work resembled abecedarian attempts of a novice choreographer, ‘Duet,’ sensitively danced by Jennifer A. Cooper and William Petroni, is surprisingly sophisticated in its careful deployment of formal thematic manipulations in the service of emotional expression.”
