Wondrous Words Wednesday

November 7, 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 a few more words in MARILLA OF GREEN GABLES by Sarah McCoy.

1. liegeman – “He bowed like a liegeman.”

I probably learned this in a history class years ago.  A liegeman is a vassal who owes feudal service or allegiance to a nobleman.

2. bannock – “‘I’m making an herb bannock.'”

Bannock is a type of fry bread, which originates from Scotland but was eventually adopted by the Indigenous peoples of Canada.

    I thought I knew all about breads, but that one is new to me. I think I need to look it up and gave a go at it.

    Your words remind me of Sir Walter Scott and his version of middle English! I think I’ve eaten a bannock somewhere along the line.

    My Wednesday this week is wordless — an attempt at calm! Maybe next week will be back to wordy.

    figured out a “liegeman” might be somebody who works for a lord. But did not know the context.

    My kids loved me to make them fry bread (I made mine different than the popular recipe) when they were young but I never heard it called bannock.

    Amazing, but I knew both of these words.
