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!
This week’s words came from my handy Word-a-Day Calendar. I chose these words because I think they’re fun to say.
1. wifty – “The actress herself is intelligent and serious, and has very little in common with the wifty character she plays on TV.”
Wifty is an adjective that means eccentrically silly, giddy, or inane: dizzy.
2. sockdolager – “For a while I was completely stumped, but then, all of a sudden, I got a sockdolager of an idea.”
In this case, sockdolager means something outstanding or exceptional. I sure wish I’d get a sockdolager of an idea!
