Wondrous Words Wednesday
Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme where we share new (to us) words that we’ve encountered in our reading. If you want to play along, grab the button, write a post and come back and add your link to Mr. Linky! Both of my words this week come from my Word-a-Day calendar.
1. auctorial – “The capacity to tell a plain tale is the greatest of the auctorial gifts .” – – Anthony Burgess, Homage to QWERT YUIOP
Auctorial is an adjective that means of or relating to an author.
2. feuilleton – “The magazine’s last issue includes feuilletons from famous writers on the subject of their mothers’ role in their success.”
In this case, a feuilleton is a short literary composition often having a familiar tone and reminiscent content.
