brobdingnagian / by Matthew Thompson

brobdingnagian - immense; enormous


   A word meaning gigantic, marked by its own gigantism. I'm having a hard time finding where the signifier ends and the signified begins. Examples like this make me wish we could put words behind glass, or keep them in jars.

   In other brobdingnagian news, a string of publication acceptances have arrived in my mailbox. I will be announcing them shortly. Also, I'm putting together a major reading and performance event for September. Yessir. Keep yer ears open.
