July 14, 2015

Now that we are hot and heavy into our summer vacations, how often have you traveled with the aid of a cicerone?  I personally tend to do all of my own planning, but every now and then it doesn’t hurt to have an official tour guide (especially when traveling outside the U.S.).

\ sis-uhroh-nee, chich-uh-; Italian chee-che-raw-ne\, noun;

1.  a person who conducts sightseers; a guide.

In Need of a Guide?

August 26, 2011

Happy Friday!  Yesterday as I was familiarizing myself with Harner’s Literary Research Guide: a Guide to Reference Sources for the Study of Literatures in English and Related Topics (2nd ed.), I encountered the following sentence: “Since this Guide is intended as a vademecum for researchers . . . ”  Needless to say, I had no clue.   So, off to the dictionary I ran to learn this new word.  And, in so doing, I also managed to discover a couple of different variations: vade-mecum and vade mecum.  (It is hyphenated according to the Oxford English Dictionary: the definitive record of the English language.)

vade-mecum

\vey-dee mee-kuh‘m\, noun;

A book or manual suitable for carrying about with one for ready reference; a handbook or guidebook.
