Wondrous Words Wednesday
Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where you can share new words that you’ve encountered or spotlight words you love. Feel free to get creative! If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post, and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky!
My first word this week is from Paris in Love by Eloisa James.
1. riposte – “One problem with my French is that I require time to think before replying, so I ended up back out on the street with far too many sausages and spent the next hour unsuccessfully trying to come up with French ripostes that I will be able to use in my next life.”
In this case, riposte means a retaliatory verbal sally: retort.
My second word is from Faith by Jennifer Haigh.
2. aggiornamento – “For Frank Lynch and his ilk there had been no Roncalli, no aggiornamento.”
Aggiornamento means a bringing up to date or modernization of the church.
What words do you want to celebrate today?
