Did you know?

Some of our readers may know bodacious as a word that figured prominently in the lingo of the 1989 film Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Others may recall the term’s frequent use in the long-running “Snuffy Smith” comic strip. Neither the creators of the comic strip nor the movie can claim to have coined bodacious, which actually first appeared in print in 1832, but both likely contributed to its popularity. The exact origin of the word is uncertain, but it was most likely influenced by bold and audacious, and it may be linked to boldacious, a term from British dialect.
