Hello words welcome to another episode of this most amazing podcast though only one where somebody is reading the dictionary and that somebody is me There's going to be a lot of abbreviations in this episode and the next episode and Yeah So let us get started with the fondness. First WORD IS BAY window B. A. Y. Second Word Window Noun from seven. What were they get a seven? The Fifteenth Century Number One a window or series of windows former forming a bay in a room and projecting outward from the wall number two is the number one definition for the word pot belly. Now we have the word bazaar it is a noun from sixteen twelve number one a market as in the Middle East consisting of rows of shops or stalls selling miscellaneous goods to a a place for the sale of goods to beat. The Synonym is department store number. Three a fair. Yeah a fair for the sale of articles especially for charitable purposes and this is from the Persian word bazaar with Let's see B. A. Z. A. R. The word we're talking about is be as Z. A. R. I don't know why we added a second a And then in the Persian word there are horizontal lines over the as So what I find interesting is that. Oh that's because it's spelled differently. Okay next we have bazooka. It is a noun from nineteen forty three a light portable antitank weapon consisting of an open breach smooth bore firing tube. That's a smooth bore. Firing tube that launches an Armenian oven. No I ray. Reread align that launches an armor piercing rocket and is fired from the shoulder. This is the word. Bazooka is a crude musical instrument made of pipes and a funnel. What I have to look more into this. A Bazooka is a crude musical instrument made of pipes and a funnel. Well how did it become the word for the antitank weapon Yeah let's look more into that one Not that I'm into weapons and stuff necessarily but it would be quite a rush to shoot off one of these bazookas from your shoulder I think whenever I think of Bazookas these days I think of the scene in the Batman to the dark night Where the joker has a little little? I put that in air quotes little bazooka that he fires from a truck. Anyway the next word is B. B. It's just the to the letter B. Twice. They are both capitalized. It is the I form. Noun from eighteen thirty two one a shot pellet point one eight inch in diameter for use in a shotgun cartridge number two a shot pellet point one seven five inch in diameter for use in an air gun. Oh they're very close but very different. Now we have. Bb again second form. It is an abbreviation for one bachelor of business number two ball bearing number three base on balls number four Blue Book and number five. I hope I pronounce this correctly. But Ni- breath. I don't know that might be a Hebrew not sure it is capital be apostrophe N. A. I. And then capital be apostrophe. R I T H apologies for not knowing where that's from the where that is from. Now we have. Bb All capitalized abbreviation for Bachelor of Business Administration. Now we have BEEB ALL BE HYPHEN B. All it is a noun from nineteen sixty seven and we just have these synonym basketball. Be baller is a noun and in both cases. They often capitalized. The I B. Now we have.

Now we have be boy capital B. Hyphen. And then the word boy. It is a noun from nineteen eighty one a male who engages in the pursuit of hip hop culture or adopts it styles. I feel like the description is the complete opposite of what the the culture is that the B boy that it's describing It just they're they're very The juxtaposition of that is very interesting to me Also these days. I don't think it has to be a male. I have a feeling there are women who are called be boys or maybe they're called B girls at this point I don't know But yeah it's it's very generalized Let's see this says the B. is probably from the word break Which is a solo instrumental passage or break beat And Yeah don't they don't be boys usually do break dancing. I'm sorry I'm not a boy. I don't know I'm just basing this off of the little bit that I've heard There's a movie piranha from around that year break in Which is all about break dancing? And at the time it was super cool. And then there was the sequel which I don't think I saw break into electric boo boo and that subtitle has become the running joke. If you ever make like a joke sequel to some movie. If you're talking about a joke sequel. We people often like to add electric. Bulu just because it's a great subtitle all right next we have bbq all caps. It is an abbreviation for barbecue Now WE HAVE THE ABBREVIATION. B B S. I'll capitalized bulletin board system. I really wish that we would see. Bb Eight in here but I think the books too old and I don't think that they would add that in here. Anyway now we have B. C. All CAPS ABBREVIATION FOR ONE BEFORE. Christ and then it says often printed in small capitals and often punctuated with periods number two abbreviation for British Columbia. Now we have B. C. C. All lower case it is the I form it is a transitive verb from nineteen eighty nine one to send a blind carbon copy to And number two to send as a blind carbon copy I find it. Kinda fascinating that there's a Lotta People. These days who. Well there's a couple of things a lot of people who are not aware of CC and BCC in when you send an email. They're not aware that that exists. Or what you can do with that. Or Why is there And then a lot of obviously young people aren't aware of what those stand for. What what those are CC. Carbon copy and back in the day when somebody wanted to send a message and they wanted to send it to multiple people. They had to do a thing called a carbon copy where I don't even know all the details because I've never had to do it. But they would basically have multiple piece of papers and a piece of carbon paper basically in the middle and then when they typed it out or wrote it out it would make another copy behind it so they didn't have to write it out twice and then they could send that copy to somebody else So that's what that is. That's what that stands for and then an email for email a BCC. A blind carbon copy is it's going to send a somebody but the original of the person who's it's being sent to isn't aware that it's being carbon copied to other people you WanNa be Kinda secretive and then the second form of. Bcc is an abbreviation for blind carbon. Copy now we have B. C. D. all caps it is the I form. Noun from Circa nineteen sixty to a system of writing numbers in which each decimal digit is represented by its four digit binary equivalent as in fifty one in BC. D is zero one zero one space zero zero zero one and I could go into more detail about that but I don't WanNa mess up. What I think is right and you don't want to hear it anyway But B C D stands for binary coded decimal now. We have the second form of B. C. D. It is an abbreviation for bad conduct. Discharge next is B. C. E. all caps abbreviation for one bachelor of Chemical Engineering number. Two Bachelor of civil engineering number three before the Christian era and that is often punctuated before the common era. Oh so it's two things that are similar before the Christian era and it's often punctuated and also before the common era and that is also often punctuated. I prefer Before the common era But I don't know the whole year thing you know were in the year like thirteen point. Seven billion give or take Nanna now we have B. Cell that's Capitol beep and then the second word is sell C. E. L. L. It is a noun from nineteen sixty to any of the lymphocytes that have antigen binding antibody molecules on the surface that comprise the antibody secreting plasma cells when mature and that in mammals differentiate in the bone marrow called also B lymphocyte and then it says compared to t cell not be sell but t cell Let's see this the B. is perilously from the word. Bursa or actually. It's Bursa derived. There's a hyphen And that is produced by the Bursa of Fabricius. I don't know what that is. Probably something in the body somethin- next we have BC F all lower case abbreviation four billion cubic feet next we have be CG vaccine BC G. is all caps. This is a noun from nineteen twenty five a vaccine prepared from a living attenuated strain of tuber coll- bass ally and used to vaccinate human beings against to break yellow says. Oh there's a dog. Barking upstairs This is called also just BC jeep. This is from Bacillus. Kalmet guerin An attenuated strain of Tuber. Bass ally So that's what the BBC G. is and this is from Albert Kalmet Who died in nineteen thirty three and Camille guerin who died in nineteen sixty one and they were French bacteriologist so they got together. And they found this Attenuated strain of tuber called Bass ally that they called Bacillus Kalmet guerin and then they shortened it to BBC G. and then the vaccine is the thing to help with BC. G makes sense good. Let's move on to be C. H. The be in the sea are capitalized abbreviation for lower of chemistry or we could also say chemistry. But that doesn't make any sense. Does it now? We Have B. C. H. E. They are all caps except for the H. I. Assume a chemistry is going to be in here somewhere. It is an abbreviation for Bachelor of Chemical Engineering. I was close. Now we have BC L. All caps abbreviation for one bachelor of Canon Law and the Canon is spelled C. A. N. O. N. and then number two bachelor of civil law now. We have B. C. N. all caps. This is an abbreviation for beacon. Excuse me and then our last word for this episode is B. Complex Capital B. And then the word complex noun from nineteen thirty three and we just have the synonym vitamin B complex. Oh boy there some good ones in this episode Let's see I think I'm going to pick Well Mummy Blah bloop bloop. Let's pick be boy as the word of the episode. I'll try and try and find pictures for some of the other ones. I kinda liked Yeah I think that's it Just a reminder to be aware of what you're touching touching especially door handles. I think a lot of people when they leave the bathroom especially they don't think about the fact that a lot of people don't wash their hands and then they touch the door and then they got their hands dirty again so whenever. I'm leaving the bathroom. I always make sure I've got a paper towel in my hand or my shirt if I have to and I open it I don't WanNa touch it. I know it sounds crazy. It sounds GERMOPHOBIC but trust me. This is what you have to do to stop the spread of germs and that is not now is the time that is ever been more important. That sentenced didn't make sense. But you understood what I meant. It is more important now than it ever has. Been to be aware of all of these things when you actually start to think about what you touch every day. Also don't touch your face. Make sure your hands are.
