Wondrous Words Wednesday

January 31, 2018

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!

This phrase is from THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW by A. J. Finn.

1. diegetic sound – “This time I’m coiled on the sofa, watching Rifi fi — the extended heist sequence, half an hour without a syllable of dialogue or a note of music, just diegetic sound and the hum of blood in your ears.”

Diegetic sound is sound whose source is visible on the screen or whose source is implied to be present by the action of the film.  It’s sometimes referred to as actual sound.


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    I don’t even remember seeing that word when I read that book a few years ago. Good one!

    I would not have guessed that word. I’ll be looking for your review of this book.

    The Woman in the Woods in on my wishlist. I really hope to read it soon! I was waiting for a library copy, but I might just have to buy it…

    It hurts my head to try to figure out that word.

    Who would have thought you would need a word to convey “actual” sound. What is it if it is not actual? I don’t get it. I agree it’s head hurting, LOL!
