Keysmash #1: Gresham

Media

Dictionary.app icon

I enjoy throwing brief keysmashes into the Mac Dictionary.app, and seeing what comes up. Here’s today’s foray into the unexpected:

foray | ˈfɒreɪ |
noun
a brief but spirited attempt to become involved in a new activity or sphere: my first foray into journalism.

Ugh not a definition of that, I wanted the result of my keysmash.

Gresham, Sir Thomas | ˈɡrɛʃəm |
(c. 1519–79), English financier. He founded the Royal Exchange in 1566 and served as the chief financial adviser to the Elizabethan government.

Huh, so I learned two things today; who Sir Thomas Gresham was, and that Dictionary.app also has bibliographies.

Let’s try another:

Gresham, Sir Thomas | ˈɡrɛʃəm |
(c. 1519–79), English financier. He founded the Royal Exchange in 1566 and served as the chief financial adviser to the Elizabethan government.

I’m pretty sure that’s the same one. Carry on.
