My Kind of Superhero: WordGirl

By May 16, 2008 culture, language No Comments

Here’s a superhero for all word nerds!

PBS has announced a new cartoon series called WordGirl. WordGirl is a superhero with a superior vocabulary. Each episode introduces a word and uses that word multiple times within various contexts so that its meaning and pronunciation can be grasped. And in every episode, of course, WordGirl saves the day. I’ve already watched a few segments online. I give it two-thumbs up—Fabulous! Humorous! Clever!

I love the summary of her mission on earth: “to fight the never-ending battle for truth, justice, and use of the right word!” Ahh. A gal after my own heart. She really is my kind of superhero.

Kudos to PBS for such a show!
