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 words this week come from The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.
1. ontological – “It is at any rate a pleasure to meet such ontologically improbable creatures.”
Even after reading the definition, I’m not sure I understand this word. Ontological means relating to or based upon being or existence.
2.numinous – “Rudolf Otto said that if you had not encountered the numinous, if you have not experienced a nonrational encounter with the mysterium tremendum, then his work was not for you.”
Numinous means supernatural or mysterious.
