All ears from Cyna

Dear Word Spy,

This is for your blog. I think the word eerie sounds like it means a person with lots of ears. Except usually people only have two ears which isn't very eary.


Dear Cyna,

Or maybe it could be like "nosy" which means someone who is very curious - then "eary" could mean someone who listens too much to other people's conversations. (?)

Eerie is a nice spooky word, isn't it? It used to mean someone who was full of fear, but somehow it slowly turned into meaning something that makes you full of fear (or at least a little bit full!)

yours uncannily,

The Word Spy
