Is this the word of the day

Many english speaking people would not know what it meaans - let alone how to spell it!

Does language just fascinate you and are you fluent in other foriegn languages?

As for your face what does it tell us? seems to be looking for answers to me....

open, careful, strong, gentle....

Yes, I'm fascinated by the English language, as well as the design of the British Pound note. That's something which started 10 years ago. But I find that word to be quite common, as it is an international word. At least we use it alot in my language. Its quite an ancient one, too as seen from Webster's Dictionary:

Main Entry: phys·i·og·no·my
Pronunciation: "fi-zE-'ä(g)-n&-mE
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural -mies
Etymology: Middle English phisonomie, from Anglo-French phisenomie, from Late Latin physiognomonia, physiognomia, from Greek physiognOmonia, from physiognOmOn judging character by the features, from physis nature, physique, appearance + gnOmOn interpreter -- more at GNOMON
1 : the art of discovering temperament and character from outward appearance
2 : the facial features held to show qualities of mind or character by their configuration or expression
3 : external aspect; also : inner character or quality revealed outwardly

"There's no art to find the mind's construction in the face..." whatever Lombroso imagined, but I don't think the word's that unusual... ;D

I question myself, my spirit and ability to perform a new character.

Being 27 turns out to be a life-stage crossing experience.
