What does the prefix "de-", which you find in the words decaffeinated or derail, mean?


Our inexpensive dictionary says: "away from; also to form a word reversing or undoing an action, such as decentralized or decoded."


With that in mind, here are some new words (and their meanings) to help improve your vocabulary:


Debarked–successful dog voice training


Debased–a downsized military






Deserved–cafeteria style


Deranged–cattle in pens




Degraded–pass/fail (not to be confused with "detested" = auditing a course)


Devoted–ignored all of the candidates


Denominated–Forbes, Lamar, et al.


Designed–deaf person's cold shoulder


Decal–U.S. after the "big one"


Decadence–ain't got rhythm




Debasement–home on a slab


Deducted–no air conditioning


Deliver–goose sans pate

RETRACTIONS (A Regular Feature):

We would like to retract everything we say in the Wacky Times.

To complain, write your congressmen (as if they would care). No part may be reproduced without the permission of the publisher, who isn't likely to grant that permission without some pretty big incentive. To secure permission send a suitcase of cash to the publisher. The publisher assumes no responsibility for unsolicited material.
