This word for the day is brought to you by Mr. Webster
and the third edition of his New College Dictionary:
abecedarian n. 1. a person learning the alphabet; beginning
student. 2. any beginner or novice.
The teacher repeated A....B....C....D...., and soon the
abecedarian caught on and learned all of the letters of the
Editor's comment: Surely you jest. This is a word? Good grief.
