Searching for different meanings of wordsmith, I found I liked Merriam-Webster's definition
Noun: a person who works with words, especially a skillful writer
I clicked Yes to receive the Word of the Day, by email.
Next I read through, Understanding Conjunctions because I could not even remember what one is or was in 1944 or now or any other year.
My brain fried as I read, Understanding Conjunctions and I quickly moved to Words Commonly Mispronounced and as I stumbled through/threw I found this comment.
English is famously difficult to spell!

English is more than a thousand years old.
