Wondrous Words Wednesday

October 28, 2015

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!

I found two words in some different places last week. My first word came from an Instagram post by Care.

1. frass – Care posted a photo of caterpillars and added, “‘The FRASS’ (New word I’m adopting into frequent use.)”

Frass is debris or excrement produced by insects.


My second word came from an event on our neighborhood’s Facebook page.  The social committee added an event – “2015 Penultimate Music in the Park.”  As I’ve run into friends and neighbors, we’ve wondered what was going to happen at this particular music in the park to make it so special.  I decided to look up penultimate and was surprised by it’s meaning.

2. penultimate – 2015 Penultimate Music in the Park

Penultimate is the last but one in a series of things; second to the last.  I plan to use this word a lot.


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    Well I can’t say that I knew Frass, but will be sure to try to use it from now on! :–)

    I like the word frass, didn’t even know there was another word for that. I’ve never heard penultimate either.

    I’ve used penultimate for a WWW entry myself. And I love the addition of frass to my vocab. Thanks. 😉

    I may not be able to use penultimate in my vocabulary, but I should be able to find a time to use frass!.

    I actually knew penultimate. I had to look it up years ago and still remember it, even though I don’t use it often.
