This morning I was having a friendly conversation with my friends http://unabridged.merriam-webster.com. I have noted that spell check does not know the word canicular, and again it flagged in two places and not the other locations. We talk daily now that we are friends. Now that we are officially in July, we entered into the canicular months of the year.. Canicular is a by-product of a word meaning dog. The canicular season is from July to September. In my many studies it is said to end a post with a request for action, so here is one: If you do not know the word, look it up, become friends with and use it somewhere.
