Wondrous Words Wednesday

April 4, 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!

I found this word in an uncorrected galley of CRASH TEST GIRL by Kari Byron.

1. anosmic – “It’s also anosmic.”

Anosmic is a noun that means absence or loss of the sense of smell.

    Very interesting word.

    I came across that word when I was reading some neuroscience about the sense of smell, which is the least-understood of the senses. A very interesting concept as it affects its victims in unexpected ways. I am very surprised to see someone call it a “pretty word” !

    I would never have guessed this word. Interestingly, I have an aunt who is anosmic.

    Yet another new word for me!

    That’s new to me too. It’s one sense I hope I don’t lose as I age. A couple of the others are fading.

    I never heard of this word before! I’ll bet this would affect a lot of things, such as taste.
