I've been sick!
Sorry about the delay, just in case there's someone out there who didn't grab their own dictionary and look up the words from Thursday they are:
passe-partout, this is a noun and it's origin is French. I'll try to give a pronounciation..../pas'par too'/ The second accent mark is stronger and there are 2 dots over the a and a line over the 2 oos.....does that help?
1. something that passes or provides passage everywhere, as a master key. 2. an ornamental mat for a picture 3. a method of framing in which a piece of glass is placed over a pictue and is affixed to a backing by means of adhesive strips of paper pasted over the edges. 4. paper prepared for this purpose.
porrect this is an adjective, Latin in origin /pe rekt'/ the first e is the schwa e (upside down)
extending horizontally; projecting.
I got this in an email an found it hilarious!
Diane worked on the bad words for me but couldn't get one of them to change.
Now, where's that dang duck?
