Word For The Weekend: DILEMMA

Word For The Weekend

DILEMMA

[DILL-EHM-MAH]

DEF:  A usually undesirable or unpleasant choice. Example: to raise interest rates and slow the economy or lower them and risk serious inflation. A form of syllogism in which the major premise is formed of two or more hypothetical propositions and the minor premise is a disjunctive proposition. (huh?) As “If A, then B; if C then D. Either A or C. Therefore, either B or D.” (oh THAT clears it up!) My favorite synonym for dilemma? “in a pickle”.
