Word of the day -- Ennui
    #4500865 - 08/05/05 07:00 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Ennui - dissatisfaction or restlessness caused by boredom or apathy.

I do not grow anything illegal.
I do not sell anything.
I am, however, a very curious individual.
I also try to be helpful.

Actually it'd be on-we.  But very nasally, since it's just a french word adopted into english but still pronounced in its french way. The french "en" sound is like the english "on" sound but pronounced nasally.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.

from dictionary.com


en?nui
n.
Listlessness and dissatisfaction resulting from lack of interest; boredom: ?The servants relieved their ennui with gambling and gossip about their masters? (John Barth).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[French, from Old French enui, from ennuyer, to annoy, bore. See annoy.]
Word History: Were they alive today, users of Classical Latin might be surprised to find that centuries later a phrase of theirs still survives, although as a single word. The phrase mihi in odi est (literally translated as ?to me in a condition of dislike or hatred is?), meaning ?I hate or dislike,? gave rise to the Vulgar Latin verb *inodire, ?to make odious,? the source of the Old French verb ennuyer or anoier, ?to annoy, bore.? This was borrowed into English by around 1275 as anoien, our annoy. From the Old French verb a noun meaning ?worry, boredom? was derived, which became ennui in modern French. This noun, with the sense ?boredom,? was borrowed into English in the 18th century, perhaps filling a need in polite, cultivated society.

Source: The American Heritage? Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Editin

ennui

n : the feeling of being bored by something tedious [syn: boredom, tedium]

Learning... yeah I am learning 60 vocab words a day for the next 10 days which is what got me to ennui.

The GRE is a worthless exam... especially for an engineer.
