Word of the day: supine


Before break, it was mostly just me and the dean on the journalism half of second Murphy. At work, we usually don’t talk, but when I had him read over something I had written for The Hamburg Sun, we struck conversation.

He told me about his days as a newspaper man, typewriters, the difference between words, etc. He asked me if I knew the difference between prostrate and supine was. I hadn’t even heard of ‘supine’ so naturally, I said ‘no’.

According to the dean (and dictionaries I’ve consulted), prostrate is lying on your stomach. Supine is lying on your back.

And now you know.
