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!
1. orrery – “I love orreries – the more unusual, the better.”
Jill was actually kind enough to define this one for me: “An orrery is a model illustrating the relative positions and motions of the planets and moons in the Solar System.”
2. hermeneutics – “I love the word hermeneutics.”
Hermeneutic means the study of the methodological principles of interpretation (as of the Bible).
3. toponymy – “I love toponymy (the study of the origin of place names).”
Jill actually defined this in her sentence, but I thought I’d include it since it was new to me.
What words do you want to celebrate today?
