The Big Word Project

If the Big Word Project is just a clever way for two incredibly smart dudes to make a ton of money, then I wouldn’t be the first to say it’s working.
It reminds me of the genius behind the Millior Dollar Homepage, except that with so many words in the english language, these guys stand to make a whole lot more money.

From their site:

The Big Word Project has been set up by Paddy Donnelly and Lee Munroe, two Masters students from Northern Ireland, who are exploring what different words mean to different people. The project allows you to purchase a word from our list to represent your site. Your site will then represent this word in our list and when people click on it, they will be taken to your site. The project is aimed at changing definitions and creating a new tapestry of words, meaning altogether different things.

I immediately tried to buy the word “star”, but someone else beat me to it.

So what word did I actually buy?
One that’s far more common:


I was shocked that it was available.

I also grabbed a couple for some of my lady blogger friends:


Have any of you bought a word? As I type this I am restraining myself from buying more.

    Agent, Lover, and Corn were all taken! However I was able to buy whimsy and wanderlust, my two favorite words. 🙂

    I know. I checked all three, because I wanted to buy you one! 🙂

  4. Interesting idea!

    If I had money I would buy urgent, or alchemy. hmm. :]

    I just bought ‘Carmine’ for the Carmine art magazine I am starting up. (Currently called addmyartjournal, and located on livejournal. Nubby makes guest posts for us once in a while.)

    Thanks so much for posting this.
