Ortho words

MT Diary, I come again,
Not much active in this lane,
Not that I m playing another game,
Can't cook up any excuse lame...

I do make a note of words that I come across during work, but most of these words do not find place in my blog...why?? ahh...the first and foremost excuse would be laziness....anyway..thought to break the pattern today....

While doing ortho files (podiatry)...came across these 3 words critical angle of Gissane and Bohler's angle, and Broden's view.  Critical angle of Gissane was recognized as "angle of same" by the speech recognition software.

From now on....will blog about the words as and when I get it instead of pooling the words.....;-)

English words

Last week I came across 2 words in English, which I was listening for the first time:  Off-kilter and touch base.

Dictator said that the anatomy was "off-kilter."  This word was not in American Heritage Dictionary.

The second word touch base was said in the context of patient getting in touch with the PCP.  Although this word was there in the American Heritage Dictionary, but still I never had the opportunity to hear/use it.

It has been after a long time that I am blogging about English words, hopefully more will follow......
