Yep, someone else, per here (scroll down to my second post on the page and following).

Jan,

The learning continues. Bless you!

In your paragraph about imminent and eminent, you describe eminent as outstanding or noteworthy. What then is eminent domain? It seems to be a legal term of someone stealing away property from others for their own gain. Your thoughts?

I did not know that a horde of people is a crowd or mass of people. Good to know.

Good to know about callus versus callous. I thought callous had different meanings.

I must have read this before because I realized I was using anxious incorrectly when I mean to say how excited I am. Result is I've been self-correcting ever since. Thanks!

You crack me up with the reference to high school versing - going to a poetry contest. I like how you find humor in words.

I had to look that one up. According to Wikipedia, the phrase 'eminent domain' is from dominium eminens (Latin for supreme lordship).

So the Latin eminens gives us the more common meaning of eminent (outstanding or noteworthy) and the meaning in the legal expression (supreme).
