Wondrous Words Wednesday

June 27, 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!

Both of these words are from CROSS FIRE by James Patterson.

1. Sigillu – “He showed Cross his sweet little encrypted Sigillu, fresh off the line.”

I had to dig around a little while to find anything on this and, from what I can tell, Sigillu is encryption software sometimes used on cell phones.

2. linguica – “When I came back, my own plate was waiting for me — scrambled eggs with linguica, wheat toast, orange juice, and a steaming cup of Nana’s chicory coffee in my old favorite #1 Dad mug with the dent where Ali had thrown it against the wall.”

Linguica is a smoke cured pork sausage in Portuguese-speaking countries.

    I love new words. You’d think, at my age, I’d know them all, but, no.

    I like discovering new names for food. On the other hand, electronics related words will always elude me. Good finds Kathy.

    Both new to me! I would struggle to pronounce them properly. 🙂

    So…I had two great words that I found in my Sherlock Holmes book…I was going to share them and I forgot them. But yours are great!

    I didn’t know either word.

  11. June 28, 2018 9:22 am

    I had no idea what either of those words were.

    No clue on either!
