My first word this week came from Jill of Rhapsody in Books‘ review of Magisterium.
1. salmagundis – “I’m all for salmagundis in food, but generally not so much a fan of it in books.”
Salmagundi is a heterogeneous mixture: potpourri.
My second word came from News From Heaven by Jennifer Haigh.
2. gonif– “You know what gonif means?”
When I looked up gonif in my dictionary, it referred me to ganef, which is Yiddish slang for thief or rascal.
