Wondrous Words Wednesday

October 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!

I’m currently reading MARILLA OF GREEN GABLES by Sarah McCoy and found this word in it.

1. croft – “‘It’s a beauty of a croft, though,’ Mr. Blair said in defense.”

A croft is a small rented farm made up of a plot of arable land attached to a house and with a right of pasturage held in common with other such farms.


What words do you want to celebrate today?

    I’ve come across this word many times but still needed to read the definition.

    It’s a new-to-me word.

    I hope you like the book.

    I keep debating whether to read that!

    Somehow I think I’ll leave my memories of Anne and her life intact from my childhood. This book feels wrong to me!

    In my post today, I used a $5 word!

    The word itself sounds like it should have been easier to identify. But…nope.

    I knew the word croft, and haven’t seen it used in a long time.

    Croft is new to me too. It brings up pictures of simpler times. I think I might like the book.

    This one is probably quite UK centric, as it is widely used in Scotland, Wales and Ireland, although not so much in mainland England.

    I haven’t read ‘Anne Of Green Gables’ since I was a child, but as I don’t read prequels I shall never probably enter Marilla’s world.

    Thanks for sharing and hosting and Happy Reading 🙂

    I did not know the meaning of this word! I’ve heard good things about MARILLA OF GREEN GABLES.

    I wonder if Sarah knew all of these words from the past or if she had to research to use them in this book….
