Wondrous Words Wednesday 8-27
Kathy at BermudaOnion's Weblog gives us the opportunity to share wondrous words that we have encountered in our reading or to share words we are particularly fond of. If you wish to join us, link up your wondrous words at BermudaOnion's Weblog and to quote another blogger, "get wordy with us".
crenulated- noun Sarah is speaking about "crenulated clouds".
Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines crenulated as : having an irregularly wavy or serrate outline
Also this week I was reading several blogs that shared the first paragraph of their current read and ran across this word quotidian.
1. occuring every day
2. belonging to each day or commonplace, ordinary.
Joann at Lakeside Musings was sharing about her current read, Why I Read: The Serious Pleasure of Books by Wendy Lesser.
From the Goodreads summary :
"As she examines these works from such perspectives as 'Character and Plot,' 'Grandeur and Intimacy,' and 'Authority,' Why I Read sparks an overwhelming desire to put aside quotidian tasks in favor of reading.
and this one: oligarchy a government structure where a small and elite group have power
Sarah at Sarah's Book Shelves was sharing her current read, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot by David Shafer and the plot summary from Amazon.
"Three young adults grapple with the usual thirty-something problems- boredom, authenticity, and omnipotent online oligarchy - in David Shafer's darkly comic debut novel"
These words were all unfamiliar to me, but I am going to try to use them in my quotidian speech in the coming week. How about you, did you come across any new and unusual words?
Until next time
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
