about this feature

Each day The Muse Of Language Arts dissects a word (or combination of words) and explains its meaning. The Muse chooses some words because they're rare, others because they're there.

The Muse is not simply after the dictionary definition of the word or words, but rather seeks to lift the rocks that words hide under. The Muse asks how and why a word is used the way it is and assesses how the word relates to other words.
