Wondrous Words Wednesday

September 26, 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 word is from GIVE ME YOUR HAND by Megan Abbott.

1. brume– “A long snaking strip of Quik Lubes and box stores, rippled by brume and the bus exhaust, that extends all the way into the hot brutalist maze of campus, four miles away, nestled deep in the sinking lemon groves.”

Brume is a noun that means mist or fog.


I found this word in A BEAUTIFUL, TERRIBLE THING by Jen Waite.

2. vore – “I keep reading, and when I see the word vore for the third time, I finally Google it.”

According to Urban Dictionary, vore is a fetish where people fantasize about being eaten alive.  That sounds rather creepy to me.  


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    Both new to me. Don’t think I’d ever use vore.

    It’s no wonder we didn’t know vore!

    Not only didn’t I know them, but I had never even heard of them. Thanks a lot, Kathy!

    What a fabulous description that included the word brume. I loved learning the word and reading the excerpt! Thanks. Vore, I agree, sounds creepy.

    Brume is something we have a lot of here. However, everyone just calls it fog. I can definitely pass on more. I agree with creepy.

    No vore for me, but today morning was definitely brumish here (is that an acceptable form of the word?).. It has been a very long time since I participated in WWW but will get back to it soon..
