Dictionary meme from opalcat

What dictionary word is closest to you?
Give the word from the top of the list of suggestions (eliminate proper nouns).

Basically, input your name (real name or LJ name) and list the first result Merriam-Webster gives you. It's amusing.

Mine? Not surprisingly, it's "esprit," which means, "vivacious cleverness or wit," which is why I chose a derivation of it. :)

(If you want the code to put this in your own LJ, see her LJ entry.)

Well, the fire enrty in the list was "noli", which link to the phrase "noli me tangere", Latin for "do not touch me". "Noli" would be the "not" in that.

The first English word is "newly".

If I use "menolly" instead of "nolly", the first word is "manually".

"Cathy" gives "couthie", a Scottish word meaning "pleasant, kindly" -- the same root as uncouth.

Hmm. "Downgraded". Not terribly uplifting, that.

And I'm not sure whether to be amused or depressed that "dingleberry" was in the list ...
