It's been a long time since I posted interesting words, and I miss doing it. Looking back, I see that in October 2010 I said I was going to do it every month. So much for that plan.
These are all the words I haven't known in books I've read so far this year. (Any book I read that doesn't contain at least one word I don't know drops a point in my estimation.) I like words.
Today, I'll list them (in the order I encountered them)... All guesses, funny or serious are welcome. There are too many for me to make up a game with them. I'll bet some of you even know some of the words, especially the ones I've found out are more European. Tomorrow, I'll bring you the definitions.
And just for fun, I've added a robin for springtime at the end.
Just in case you are curious, the Blogger spell checker program only recognizes 7 of these!
And just because I don't want to appear too stupid, I want to say that I know I've seen a couple of these words before, but I couldn't pull out their meaning, so they had to go on my list. Them's my rules, and I'm stickin' by 'em!
