day no. 12,840: wordsmithin': hapax legomenon‏

Extra! Extra! Read all about it HERE.
hap•ax le•go•me•non
1. a word that occurs only once within a context, either in the written record of an entire language, in the works of an author, or in a single text.
I know, what the what?
I didn’t know it either.
I heard Driscoll say it HERE.
I was able to guess its spelling based on what I thought I heard him say.
I believe I typed in hopox lag… then Google was great to chime in, “did you mean hapax legomenon?”
Yes, I did Google.
Thanks for the heads up.
It was in reference to a word Paul uses in Philippians which I have discussed before HERE.
I love learning new stuff!
Hapax Legomenon.
Nice to meet you.
