Wondrous Word Wednesday
Mareli over at Elza Reads hosts this fun monthly meme and I thought it was about time I joined. After all, I love finding a cool word!
The concept for Wondrous Word Wednesday is fairly easy, all you have to do is share any words you came across during the month and add your name to the linky provided at the end of Marelie's post. You can make a link-up post, or just add your new word to our comment section. The word can be a new one found in a book(or new to you) or favorite words, or funny sounding words, whatever interests you.
I have a couple words that I found this month (and I remembered to jot them down).
This is a word I actually used when talking to a co-worker and they gave me a startled look of surprise. It just flew out of my mouth - Then I had to explain what it meant. Which I know because I often experience lack of memory and 'make stuff up'. :)
Roots are in Latin inchoare which means "to start work on" like a plan or idea in it's early stages of development. EX: My idea to redecorate my house is inchoate.
This was an entirely new word to me - read it in a book somewhere and remembered to jot it down. I wasn't even sure how to pronounce it - it's IN - KOH - IT - not like I would have guessed at all.
Thanks for this illuminating exercise in sharing knowledge (how pretentious sounding is that???). But, it's also really fun.
Your word chortle is one I know but have never heard used. Doesn't it sound like the sound Santa would make?
