Y la palabra del día es...

Todos los días recibo en mi correo electrónico una palabra nueva en inglés, incluída su definición, usos, significados, etimologías y origen...
En ocasiones incluso los nerdazos que ofrecen un servicio de tal naturaleza cometen errores... (pocos, he de aclarar)

Hoy abro mi correo y me encuentro esto:


Word of the Day for Tuesday, January 27, 2009

wanton \WON-tn\, adjective;
The plural is faunas or faunae.:


1. reckless, heartless, or malicious; without reason or excuse
2. not moral; lewd, lascivious

"Such (a) stand and attitude are leading to the grave, wanton violation of all the north-south agreements," the report said.
-- Kwang-Tae Kim, Denver Post, 2008-11-11

Ram raiders have smashed through the main admissions area of Royal North Shore Hospital, stealing the contents of an ATM and assaulting a man, in a rampage police have called "wanton bloody destruction".
-- Dylan Welch, The Sydney Morning Herald, 2008-11-11

c 1300, wan-towen, from Middle English privative prefix wan- "wanting, lacking" (from Old English wan "wanting") + togen/teon "to train, discipline;" literally "to pull, draw," from Proto Germanic *teuhan. The basic notion perhaps is "ill-bred, poorly brought up."



Say what again???

El plural de la palabra wanton, cuyo origen etimológico es poco más o menos indisciplinado, es faunae???

Digo, está bien que a veces los indisciplinados nos comportemos como animales, pero me parece poco sutil la indicación.

This is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, this is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but with a typo...

He leído con atención aleatoria estos posts, y debo decir que me han parecido interesantes unos y acres y corrosivos otros, (como el de Méxicanos [sic] de FCH). Felicidades por tu escritura y valentía, da gusto leer a quien sabe leer.

Saludos.
