WORD OF THE DAY! 11/29/11



chronology [kruh-nol-uh-jee]
noun
1. the sequential order in which past events occur.
2. a statement of sequential order.
3. the science of arranging time in periods and ascertaining the dates and historical order of past events.
4. a reference work ordered in accordance to dates.

EX. Few video game mysteries are more elusive than the order that Nintendo's Legend of Zelda games take place in time. There are several chronological theories, including a split-time theory starting with Ocarina of Time, but Shigeru Miyamoto, the series creator, has been rather mum about the exact timeline. Some people accept that there is no cohesive timeline but we can only hope that future Nintendologists can discover the true chronology.
