I have been getting the TalkIrish word of the day since last February and about a week ago I realized I got a word in my inbox that I have seen before. All the emails I get go into a TalkIrish folder in Outlook, so I went to the very first email I received and sure enough, I had already gathered about four duplicate words.
If TalkIrish only has roughly 365 words that they circulate, how can I use that to my advantage? The answer came to me this morning.
I often look for sentence structures I can use for building dialogue and this gives me that opportunity. For every duplicate word I get, I forward the email to myself and replace the subject line with the actual sentence used at the bottom of the word-a-day email. Now I have not only a searchable list of words, I will have a searchable list of sentences I can use and reuse.
