Today’s post is brought to you by the letter F – I chose all of these words because they start with that fabulously fantastic letter! I obviously need to step up my reading because, once again, I had to rely on my handy Word-a-Day Calendar.
1. fugleman – “David Mamet has long been American drama’s fugleman of four-letter words.” — James C. Taylor, Los Angeles Times, October 11, 2005
David Mamet must have quite a salty vocabulary since fugleman means one at the head or forefront of a group or movement.
2. festinate – ““I assure you sir,” said the ambassador, “I am all too aware of the dangers inherent in a festinate decision.””
Festinate is a fancy was of saying hasty.
3. fatidic – “I hope the dream I had last night about losing my wedding ring doesn’t prove fatidic.”
Fatidic means of or relating to prophecy.
