I found a few more words in The Penguin Lessons by Tom Michell.
1. spinney – “At the next track, I turned off the road and took shelter under the largest of six or so eucalyptus trees in a spinney.”
A spinney is a small area of trees and bushes.
2. ethos – “Diego was not entirely without friends, but they were boys like him who had similar problems conforming to the ethos of the school.”
I felt like I should have known this word but couldn’t define it. Ethos is the guiding beliefs of a person, group, or organization.
What words do you want to celebrate today?
