Wondrous Words Wednesday in Audio!!
Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Kathy at BermudaOnion's Weblog. It is a chance to share and celebrate words we find in our daily reading. Want to play along, hop on over to Kathy's blog and link your post to Mr Linky. See you there!
I am still listening to the audible version of The Goldfinch. Listening to audio books is great, but hard to make note of words that sound unfamiliar to me, or to check on a word that I am not sure of the definition. Usually I am doing some other task while listening, without pen and paper at hand, and then I am not sure of the spelling.
Such is the case with the word desultory. When I heard it, I knew is was a wondrous word example, but I did not know how to spell it. I took a chance and went to YourDictionary . I typed in deseltory, not sure of the spelling. Finally the definition appeared with the correct spelling, desultory.
I haven't been able to find the exact sentence in the backtracking in the audio, but Theo was remarking about the desultory standards of the new school he was attending in Las Vegas.
I'll try to keep a pen and paper at hand as I continue, to note other words as they come up. I am enjoying listening to this story, though I am hearing and reading lots of negative.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
