Word of the Day: Contradistinction

by Tim O'Brien

The Word of the Day today from Dictionary.com is "Contradistinction". It means "Distinction by contrast". Sample sentence: "Maven provides a comprehensive approach to software projects. It provides a declarative model that decouples build logic from a specific project. Maven encourages universal reuse of build logic across all projects -- in contradistinction to Ant, which tends to be used as toolbox for scripting builds.
