I don't know all I think I do.

I'm not even sure why I clicked on the “Word of the Day” in my blog's sidebar today. It is a word I know, and had no doubts about. What a surprise I got when the dictionary opened in another window:

 

ingenue AN-zhuh-noo, noun:

1. A naive girl or young woman.

2. An actress playing such a person; also: the stage role of an ingenue.

 

It wasn't the definition that surprised me, it was the pronunciation! After all these years of reading the word, I'd never fathomed it could be pronounced “AN-zhuh-noo”!

 

I'm certain there are countless things that I arrogantly assume I know that will one day prove themselves quite the opposite. Fortunately, our God is Omniscient, and to him there will be no surprises.

 

(Scroll down my sidebar! I added a new feature, “Verse of the Day”.)

  1. I knew how to pronounce it, because there is a song on the Great Expectations album with “ingenue” … however, I didn’t know the correct meaning! LOL
