for a strong, fast pick-me-up
If you love words and learning more about words – I encourage you to enjoy Rugby Union and take note of the words used.
I’m a Rugby-loving (League and Union) word nerd. I work with words in my job – and I love “studying” Union commentary and analysis.
I find Union commentary and analysis shows a robust and confident love of language
Union writers and commentators seem to use words you won’t often hear in other sports coverage.
Expressions such as:
That was a torpid interpretation by the referee.
Piled on a plethora of points.
The All blacks have been pilloried by the NZ media.
Now, I know basically what the words mean – but I find I am often encouraged to “dig deeper” into where the words come from.
If words interest you too – here’s a bit more about the words pilloried, plethora and torpid.
