SOUND BYTES - Jan 2019

The Nature of Words

by Laurel Stoddard, CET


As much as I enjoy the instant gratification of using a browser to look up a word, a geographic reference, a term of art, I do miss the tactile experience of the old unabridged dictionary, leafing through it, starting with a word I have in mind and finding myself somewhere else entirely. I have to laugh when I search a word on and see that it's in the bottom 10% of words in look up popularity. Perhaps that's my new calling: to bring that bottom 10% of words to light.


Sit Up Straight and Stand Tall

by Ed Cardinal, MSPT


“To keep the body in good health is a duty, otherwise, we shall not be able to keep our mind clear and strong.” ~ Buddha

“Sit Up Straight and Stand Tall” is something we often heard from our parents, teachers and other adults growing up. If you were anything like me, you might make the corrections while they were looking and then return to your slouch when they were out of sight. “What do they know?” Well, now that I’m more educated about the ramifications of poor posture and the benefits of good, I realize they were onto something.

Word Puzzle

by Laurel Stoddard, CET


Our favorite master of puzzling, Laurel Stoddard, has been at it again. Laurel composes the Word Puzzles for our AAERT newsletter. When she comes across a novel word, Laurel makes an electronic note of the word to use in one of her future puzzles. Do you love to be baffled and perplexed? See if you can solve Laurel's word puzzle.
