Titus Monday evening at the Y. W. C. A. The class is sponsored by the literature department of the Woman's club and at its next meeting Jan. 8 derivations of words will be the topic. "The denotation of the word is its Inherent meaning, while" the associations of the word make Its connotations," Mrs. Titus said. "It is through the connotations of the word that many misunderstandings arise. We must not only know the meaning of a word but know how to use it in the right place. "The command of a wide vocabulary is an accomplishment and the lack of ability to bend words to use arises, more often from laziness than from scruple. Words are realities E A may become'powerful tools." Speaking of pronunciations, Mia. Titus said that the man who compiles the dictionary Is a recorder and that there Is no reason why three-fourths of the country should be required to use a pronunciation preferred In one fourth of the country. Discussion of various words followed including- salt and sodium chloride, bump and collide, brilliant and flashy, bungle and did not succeed, tumble and fall, dawn and 6 a. m., licked and worsted, fat and plump, wept and blubbered, steals and embezzles, thlevlshness and kleptomania and told a lie and fell into a verbal Inexactitude.
