Word – Muse
Muse – Word of the day
In Greek, Mnemosune, is a Greek god and her name translates to ‘memory’. Memory was once the mother of invention for the ancient Greek professional poets whose job is to compose new poems in traditional styles on festive occasions, or to improvise material when they had a memory lapse. This word, ‘Mnemosune’ has its root in the extended Greek and Indo-European word ‘men-to think’ and thus, the other meaning of the word.
