I'm sure he'll do that. All right. First word for this episode is animal a an i m a l <hes>. I love animals. Also they're great. <hes> this is the first of two forms it's a noun from the fourteenth century one any of a kingdom and amelia eliya of living things including many celled organisms and often many of these single celled ones as protozoans that typically differ from implants in having cells without cellulose walls in lacking chlorophyll and the capacity for photosynthesis in requiring more complex food materials as proteins in being organized to a greater degree of complexity and in having the capacity for spontaneous movement and rapid motor responses to stimulation that was a very long definition obviously <hes> but it basically went through all the different things things that make up something that you would call an animal to a one of the lower animals as distinguished from human beings to be we have these synonym mammal and then it says broadly the word vertebrate or vertebrate three a human being considered chiefly as physical or non rational also this nature so the nature of being animal. I guess yes for a person with a particular interest or aptitude as in a political animal five. We have these synonyms matter m. a. t. t. e. r. n. Thing t. h. I. n. g. as in the theater is an entirely different animal and that is from arthur miller and then to finish off the five definition it says also the one see definition for the word creature animal like is an adjective and let's look at the analogy. This is <hes> from the latin on a molly which has neutral of animals which means animate that is from anima which means soul we learn that in the previous episode and there's more at the word animate. Maybe that's part of the reason why i like animals is because i also like animation all right now. Let's get to the second definition or the second form of the word animal. This one is an adjective adjective <hes> from sixteen fifteen one of relating to resembling or derived from animals to a of of or relating to the physical or sentient as contrasted with the intellectual or rational to be we have these synonyms sensual and foolishly flesh -ly.

I don't know if i'm saying that right. <hes> it's it's the word animal with c. u. L. e. added to the end so it's all one word <hes> and it looks like anna. Malcolm is another other form. This is a noun from sixteen sixty to a minute usually microscopic organism so we have the word molecule fuel <hes> similar similar suffix with the same suffix <hes> and so this is anna molecule or anna molecule basically a very small animal animal.

We learned that earlier this episode <hes> so they animated different clay animals to be the people that they interviewed <hes> some were in zoos some were on farms or in circuses or just various situations and the things that they say fits so perfectly to to the situations that they were in <hes>. I'm probably not doing a very good job job describing it but i highly highly recommend that you go watch this <hes> if i can find it on youtube. I'll put a lincoln the episode description because it's very clever very well done very funny and in most cases or all cases.

There is one more at the very bottom of this column but it goes goes on to the next column so we're going to save that for the next episode <hes> and also i wanted to save it because it is the word animate and i realized that every single word in this episode had the word animal and it just so happened that <hes> they are the only words that start with animal so that worked out very well so the word of the episode i'm going to pick is just the word animal.
