“Shibboleth”, A Lovely, Powerful Word That I Discovered Today.

This NBC post is where I saw. Click on image to access the original story.

I came across it in the above NBC post. Stopped me dead in my tracks. I could not recall ever coming across that word. Something about it. It sounded so evocative. Had to look it up.

Its meaning blew me away. WOW. What a great word. I am bummed that I had never come across it before.

I love words. I love names — which also happen to be words.

I had to share this word with YOU.

I discovered that it was Biblical. Yes, I can see the Hebrew origins.

    Hi Anura,

    You should check out the episode of the T.V. show The West Wing called Shibboleth starring Martin Sheen.

    Clips are available on YouTube.

    Kind Regards

    Jim Clarke
