Subject:        bardolater: M-W's Word of the Day

For some time, I have subscribed to the Merriam-Webster Word of the Day:

http://www.startsampling.com/sm/wod/register.iphtml

Reading it gives me something to do when I first open my personal e-mail
account in the mornings.

Here is what I found this morning:

The Word of the Day for Feb 06 is:

bardolater \bar-DAH-luh-ter\ (noun)
: a person who idolizes Shakespeare

Example sentence:
The annual Shakespeare festival attracts bardolaters from all over the
world.

If you would like to read the "Did you know?" section that discusses
Shaw's role, see
