Tossing Out an Interesting Story!

Hi tutors!

I ran across an article in Mental Floss magazine that my fellow word nerds among you might find interesting.  It is about “contranyms”—words that are their own opposites.  Number 25 on the magazine’s list was “tossing out,” which can mean “to suggest” OR “to discard.”    Here’s the link I am suggesting…I hope you don’t discard it without giving it a read!

Hope you’ve had a good week-end!  lder
