Wondrous Words Wednesday (1/29/2020)

wondrous-words-wed

Wondrous Words Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Kathy @Bermuda Onion. All you have to do is share new words that you’ve encountered while reading or spotlighting words you love.

Welcome to another Wondrous Words Wednesday! With the exception of the final word, all of these are words I first discovered while browsing dictionary.com’s Word of the Day section, and thought they were interesting and perhaps not widely known. The final word is something I often come across while reading, and I’ve always liked the way it sounds.

Without further ado, here are my selections for this week… enjoy!
