…WORDS for the WISE…


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.”


Thank you Micheal Materson
