Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Kathy at Bermudaonion's Weblog. It is a place to share new words that you have encountered or to spotlight words you love. Feel free to get creative. If you want to play along, grab the button at Kathy's blog , write a post and go back and add your link to Mr. Linky.
All the definitions here are from the New Oxford American Dictionary . As I read We Are Water on my Kindle, I looked up the words that were unfamiliar to me. In these sentences, I did not think is was obvious what the definitions were.
1. fecund - adj. producing or capable of producing an abundance of offspring or new growth.
"At the center of the composition stands the Tree of Life, lush and fecund.
2. specious - adj. superficially plausible, but actually wrong.
" That's kind of a specious argument, isn't it?"
3. hubris - n. excessive pride or self-confidence.
"Or is that hubris on my part, too?"
