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! All of my words this week come from my Word-a-Day calendar.
1.hawkshaw – “Though she risked being late for an appointment, Amanda could not bring herself to set the crime novel down until the hawkshaw had solved the case.”
I love this word! A hawkshaw is a detective.
2. frigorific – “Jamie shivered as she faced a frigorific blast of wind blowing off the lake.”
This is another great word – frigorific means causing cold: chilling.
3. abecedarian – “The children recited an abecedarian chant, beginning with “A is for apple” and ending with “Z is for zebra.””
In this case, abecedarian means of or relating to the alphabet.
Have you come across any new words lately?
