WORD OF THE DAY! 2/27/12



omission [oh-mish-uhn]
noun
1. the act of omitting.
2. the state of being omitted.
3. something left out, not done, or neglected.


plutoid [ploo-toid]
noun
1. a celestial body which orbits the Sun but is further from it than Neptune; designated by the International Astronomical Union to refer to Pluto and similar space objects.

EX. The recent omission of Pluto from the designation of planet has stirred up a lot of debate. I care more about the emotional denigration that Pluto is going from by being downgraded to a dwarf planet or plutoid.
