A friend on FB, mom of a 7 year old , he'll be 8 in July, posted this with a picture of him reading the computer screen of a game he is interested in playing. I had to look up redacted also!

"Proud (geek) Mom moment. Isaac read the entire character description without stumbling and only needed the definition for redacted."

1: to put in writing : frame

3: to obscure or remove (text) from a document prior to publication or release

During my deputy training, we were subjected to a lecture by a retired medical examiner visiting from Orlando who had made a name for herself in the field of forensic osteology

From my current read, The Cat Sitter's Whiskers by Blaize and James Clement

I could figure this one out, because of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. But I was unfamiliar with the word.

osteology - noun

Medical definition of osteology

1: a branch of anatomy dealing with the bones

2: the boney structure of an organism

Did you find any wondrous words in your reading or listening this week?

  1. I only knew the third meaning of redact. I find it interesting that some words have so many different meanings.

  2. I only know redacted becausw I read way too many legal thrillers.
