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!
All of my words this week come from my handy Word-a-Day Calendar. I chose these words because they reminded me of other words.
1. flyting – “For centuries, theatergoers have been entertained by the flyting between Shakespeare’s Falstaff and Prince Hall.”
Flyting is a noun that means a dispute or exchange of personal abuse in verse form.
2. adust – “The adust landscape of volcanic rock and sand can be particularly beautiful at sunset.”
Adust is an adjective that means scorched or burned.
3. cabotage – “Some assert that the high price of imported goods would be significantly reduced if the government would simply relax its restrictions on cabotage.”
Cabotage is trade or transport in coastal waters or airspace or between two points within a country. It can also mean the right to engage in cabotage.
