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!
The first word I found is from Mystica’s post on The Living by Anjali Joseph.
1. chappal – “Two alternate lives – Claire working in a shoe factory in England and Arun working as a chappal maker (which is featured on the cover) in Kohalpur.”
Chappals are Indian hand-crafted leather sandals. I’ve seen them plenty of times but never knew they had a specific name.
I found another word in Heat and Light by Jennifer Haigh.
2. factitious – “The term ‘factitious’ describes symptoms that are artificially produced rather than the result of a natural process.”
This word was defined in the sentence but I thought there might be a little more to it so I looked it up. Factitious artificially created or developed.
What words do you want to celebrate today?
