Today’s words come from a couple of unique places I found the first word in the Author’s Note of The Bear by Claire Cameron.
1. predation – “But in this case there is no apparent rationale for the attack, other than predation.”
Predation looked and sounded familiar to me and I felt like I should know it yet I couldn’t quite discern the meaning in that sentence so I decided to look it up and I learned predation is the act of preying or plundering.
2. lubricity – Carl commented on a new lotion I bought, saying it didn’t have much lubricity. I knew what he meant but wondered if lubricity was really a word so I went scrambling for my dictionary.
Lubricity is a word and it means the property or state of being lubricious; also: the capacity for reducing friction.
