Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for November 28, 2021 is: menorah • muh-NOR-uh • noun A menorah is a candelabra with seven or nine lights that is used in Jewish worship. // At sundown on the first night of Hanukkah, Aaron's father helped him light the first candle on the menorah. See the entry > Examples: "The world's largest menorah went up in Manhattan on Tuesday and will be lit on Thursday after sundown…." — ABC7 (New York), 10 Dec. 2020 Did you know? In English, menorah was originally the name for the seven-branched candelabra used in Jewish worship. The nine-branched Hanukkah candelabra is called hanukkiah in Hebrew, but English speakers came to use menorah for this too. The Hanukkah menorah recalls expulsion by Judah Maccabee of invading forces from the Temple of Jerusalem. Maccabee and his followers sought oil for the temple's menorah so that the sanctuary could be rededicated, but they found only enough oil for a single day. Miraculously, that tiny amount of oil burned for eight days, until a new supply could be obtained. The Hanukkah menorah includes a candle for each day the oil burned, plus the shammes, a "servant candle" that is used to light the others.

Mastering Verbal Skills – Part 2 Episode #356 with Jenni Poulos In part one of Mastering Verbal Skills, Kirk Behrendt and Jenni Poulos discussed how words carry weight and why language matters in your practice. In today's lesson, Jenni explains why listening also matters and how critical it is for mastering verbal skills. With the templates they provide, you can learn how to listen to and answer some of the most difficult questions patients ask! For more on active listening and communication, listen to Episode 356 of The Best Practices Show! Main Takeaways: Listening is also a crucial part of verbal skills. Improving verbal skills will open up possibilities. Language helps differentiate and communicate your practice's strengths. You can communicate value to your patients using appropriate language. Use the “feel, felt, found” concept to discuss difficult patient questions. Quotes: “What we say matters. How we say it matters. How we lean in, and how we're curious, and how we listen matters. And listening is as big a part of verbal skills as is speaking. It affects our relationships with our team members. It affects our relationships with our patients, our case closure, the predictability of our days, our lives. So, it's super important.” (1:49—2:18) “[A typical comment from patients is], ‘I'm only going to do it if it's covered.' And we have to move patients past this limiting belief that their insurance exists to provide them with optimal health, because we believe that, ‘If my insurance says that I can't have it paid for, then I don't need it,' and that could not be farther from the truth.” (3:55—4:18) “Our understanding of insurance is completely rooted in the way that medical insurance functions. Medical insurance and dental insurance do not function in the same way at all. So, we want to differentiate by changing the language. We don't want to call it “insurance” because it doesn't function how you understand insurance. It's not a full-loss item. It's a benefit that will assist, but it's not going to cover everything. It was never intended to, nor will it, ever.” (5:11—5:48) “People are advocating to use their benefits because they have them. I don't want you to look at their benefits as the enemy, just how do we communicate the way that we do it in our office, the way that we utilize benefits, in order to move patients through to acceptance.” (6:33—6:51) “Write this down. It's a great phrase and it will help you with this question. ‘What I want you to understand, Mrs. Jones, is that your benefits exist to help you maintain, but not to obtain, oral health.' That's a great way to think about them.” (7:02—7:21) “People pay for the things that they value. We will invest in what we value. I like to joke about this, but I say this with my team, ‘Oh, your Coach bag goes so great with your Class IV perio disease.' I have invested thousands of dollars in a purse. If I value my health, I probably will invest an equal amount in that. So, it's important that we're able to convey value and help patients see value and lead them to the value that is there. And if you can believe it and confidently communicate it, the patients will have an easier time seeing it.” (11:14—11:56) “People may not know this, but [insurance companies] actually can come back and say — up to a year later — ‘Hey, we overpaid, and we need some money back.' You may preauthorize, get payment, and be told in eight months, ‘I need money back.' So, there is never a guarantee of payment from the dental insurance companies. Never tell your patients that there is a guaranteed payment. It is always only an estimate. Even after the check has cleared the bank, it is still not a guarantee.” (12:05—12:39) “Unless your patient, and there are instances in which they are part of an exclusive provider organization where they must see an in-network provider to get any level of benefit — and those types of plans do exist — for the most part, they are able to...

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for November 25, 2021 is: jovial • JOH-vee-ul • adjective Jovial means "markedly good-humored" and describes people and things that are cheerful or full of joy.   // Andy remembered his Uncle Jim as a jovial man with a ready smile, a firm handshake, and a cheery greeting for all. // Family reunions are a jovial occasion in which long-distance relatives reconnect and, of course, share amusing stories about each other. See the entry > Examples: "Still, part of the pleasure of dining at Margie's is ... its familial atmosphere. When Winston, a jovial seventeen-year-old senior at Far Rockaway High School, stopped to chat while clearing dishes, it was hard not to feel like a guest at an intergenerational dinner." — Jiayang Fan, The New Yorker, 16 Aug. 2021 Did you know? In Roman astrology, planets were named after gods, and people were thought to share the personality traits of the god whose planet was rising when they were born. Jupiter, also called Jove, was the chief Roman god and was considered a majestic type who was the source of joy and happiness. The Latin adjective jovialis means "of or relating to Jove." In French, this had become jovial, which English borrowed and used to describe people and things full of cheer or joy.

The Icelandic language has remained so stable over the centuries, speakers can read manuscripts from 900 years ago without too much trouble. And when they need a new word for more recent concepts, there are committees to coin one, so that the modern Icelandic lexicon includes such things as the internet, helicopters and mansplaining.

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for November 24, 2021 is: feign • FAYN • verb Feign means "to give a false appearance of something." // After her mom told her that she will bring her to the doctor's, Kim confessed that she was feigning illness because she forgot to finish her book report. See the entry > Examples: "For his part, Hopkins said Collins had surprised him the most this preseason, adding that he's never seen a 6-9 player who can do the things his fellow freshman can on the court. Hopkins … also didn't attempt to feign surprise when told that every single one of his teammates had mentioned him by name when asked the same question." — Ben Roberts, The Lexington (Kentucky) Herald Leader, 21 Oct. 2021 Did you know? Feign is all about faking it, but that hasn't always been so. An early meaning of the word is "to fashion, form, or shape." That meaning comes from its Latin source: the verb fingere. In time, people began fashioning feign to suggest the act of forming, or giving shape to, false appearances.
